Architects and Building Designers in Fox Chapel, PA
"Jeff DeNinno is an outstanding and creative architect. He designed a new back deck for our home based on a very aesthetically pleasing concept that consisted of natural/recycled materials, unique geometries, and accessible layout that matched beautifully with the look of the home. Jeff does an excellent job understanding client preferences, interests, functionally needs, and budget. His ability to effectively synthesize all of these inputs into a design concept is exceptional. I would recommend him to anyone at the highest level and will definitely work with him again."

lee CALISTI architecture+design
Architects and Building Designers in Fox Chapel, PA
"I hired Mr. Calisti to design an addition for my 100 year-old residence. He had very creative solutions to problems and his work was impressive to say the least. Every detail was well thought out. Lee developed a great relationship with our contractor and was always avaliable to answer any questions that arose on the jobsite. I felt that Lee had a great knowledge base about the newest building concepts and was able to incorporate these ideas into the addittion without affecting the original historic aspect of the house. I highly recommend Mr. Calisti to anyone looking to use architectural services.”"

Darrell C Kauric Architect LLC
Architects and Building Designers in Fox Chapel, PA
"Approximately seven years ago my wife and I started to explore various options of expanding our home for our growing family. We I connected with Darrell through one of my wife's best friend who had hired Darrell. The journey began with what we "thought" made the most sense which was to build a four-season room with additional basement space below along with a detached 2-car garage as we had a 1-car garage. Darrell helped make our vision a reality on paper added sensible touches and value engineered the job. Having never had a job of this size (I get it that in reality it was pretty small), we experienced sticker shock when the bids came back and could not justify to investment to get any reasonable return on our investment. So we paused and gave more thought as to another strategy which was to go out the other side of our house with an open kitchen over a 2-car garage. Sounds simple but ask him to show you the photos. Not only does the space work but he made the house flow inside beyond our expectations. He also helped in re-imagining closets, powder rooms, a second floor bath an an office for my wife. We get rave reviews. Now four years after we completed the project, we are confident it was absolutely the best thing we could have done. Our builder commented several times to me that he appreciated the extensive notes on the drawings as it left very few change orders in the end. We have recommended Darrell to neighbors, family members and anyone who asks. You won't be disappointed if you work with Darrell. He is a joy to work with. He has great vision but also is a great listener. His guidance in the process was invaluable. I don't think we will move anytime soon but if we did and needed to do the work again, we know the architect we'll call. Chris and Maureen H. Fox Chapel, PA"

How do I find the best Fox Chapel architect for my home design project?


It is best to hire a home architect who will be involved in all phases of the design process, from the initial concept to the completed construction. The architect is often the first person you will hire for your project. If necessary, they might also help you select and hire Pennsylvania subcontractors, which can include the builders, engineers and landscaper. Interior architects are also involved in negotiating contracts for all involved participants. It is for these reasons that it is extremely important for you to have a good relationship with the Fox Chapel residential architect you hire. He or she can be the tie-breaking vote between you and the general contractor and can be your biggest advocate during the construction process. Different architecture firms in Fox Chapel, PA provide different services, so the scope of the work can span from pre-design environmental impact studies to selecting furniture and finishes, depending on what your specific needs are.

What sort of process can I expect from a residential architect?


As far as the process goes, the architecture firm or individual that you choose will start with concept drawings and finish with construction drawings and documents. Some firms even design with 3D renderings and videos, but that should not be assumed. There should be plenty of meetings between you and your building designer until you have agreed upon a design that you are completely happy with. Always keep in mind that the designer will have building codes to follow, and likely pre-existing design limitations when dealing with a remodel, so while they might not be able to execute your exact ideas they always have your safety and aesthetics in mind. One of the most important duties of a residential architect is to serve as managers and supervise most aspects of construction, as well as facilitate communication between all other contractors, so you can expect them to be present throughout the entire building process to ensure everything is executed as planned.

It is very important to hire the right professional for the job. Remember that the most well-known or established designer might not provide the best architectural services for your needs. It all comes down to the individual project. Research and ask people whose work you like for recommendations. It's important to have somewhat of an idea of the style of house architecture that you prefer, as well as the amount you would like to spend. Residential architects in Fox Chapel, PA are natural problem solvers. They will assess the entire situation and help you to solve your problems too. Don't settle for a single company too early. Call and interview a few. Make sure that you feel like your personalities will mesh well and that you like their professional perspective.

Questions to ask prospective Fox Chapel interior architects:


  • What is your fee structure?
  • What does the cost include?
  • Do you have professional liability insurance?
  • Can you handle my special requests (ADA, LEED etc.)?
  • What types of renderings (3D, video, illustrative) will you produce?
  • What is your experience with similar projects?
  • When do you expect to start and be finished with the project?
  • What do your services include? (It's best that the services are until construction is completed.)
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Would you say your work has a defining style? (This is important in case the architect's personal style will interfere with your vision.)
  • Will you help with hiring a general contractor and subcontractors?
  • What do you estimate the cost will be?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any complications you foresee with this project?
