Jeannette Architects
Architects, Architecture Firms, & Building Designers in Gardena
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsJune 20, 2012
My wife and I hired Jeannette Architects to assist us with a major remodel (interior/exterior) of our 3,500 sq. ft. ranch style home in Newport Beach. The task: incorporate warm contemporary design into our 1970's "woody cabin." As a real estate developer and because it's our third major house remodel there were many design elements we knew we wanted but many more that we needed help with. As capable as Jeff (Jeannette) is with his design sense, we believe that it's his ability to listen to his clients, understand client goals, how we will live in the space and how that fits into our budget is what sets Jeff apart from other architects. The Jeannette team met aggressive time constraints, produced a thorough set of construction documents, were always quick to provide clarification and answers to our questions and were great resources for product and material options and information. True professionals that we would use again and confidently refer to others. Our project is nearing completion and I can't wait to share photos.

Merissa does a great job really getting to know her clients. As someone who has worked with her and a few of her clients I am amazed by the diversity of her design strengths. A lot of designers and architects will simply give their clients/homeowners a list of where to go to find interior details but Merissa has actually travelled around the city with her clients to help them specify materials. She is educated, funny and talented which makes her a champion to have on your team!

I have know Gerald Compton for many years. He is a wonderful Architect and Designer of Homes. He did a house for me over 25 years ago the first time. The house in Manhattan Beach was fantastic. Later Jerry did a second home for my daughter and her husband at the Beach. They love their Beach Cottage. He is now helping us remodel a home for my son and his family. The City of Manhattan Beach has been difficult, but Jerry has helped us and we hope to have the remodel done soon. He is truly a super guy with a lot of talent.

I grew up with a father who is a master contractor. In my adult life, I have been involved in countless home renovations, so I've always thought architects are a waste of time & money. They always seem to be writing checks with the customers' money, and have no basis in reality or practicality: they seem so frivolous. Hubby and I bought a mid-century modern home that had been turned into a tuscan style by the previous owners. (can you imagine?) We needed help getting approval from the local city planning board who are a NIGHTMARE to deal with (average of 8-10 plan checks, most cities do 2-3!?) We hired Glen with EZPlans to help us. Glen handled acrimonious city officials, seeming design impossibilities (and even a few vastly different design ideas between hubby and I) with tact, professionalism, and good humor. Dealing with EZ Plans was a breeze. I am so impressed with their vision, their professionalism, and the very talented, creative (and practical) architects they hire. They are exceptional communicators, and are as intuitive as they are talented. EZ Plans turned a simple contractor grade design we could have come up with ourselves, to a design that respected the mid-century bones of our home, and brought it to the practical standards we needed the home to suit. The design they came up with easily increased the value of our renovation tenfold. the only direction they had from me was "I want to respect the home's bones with materials in their natural element, nothing frivolous, but we need the house to be super specialized for our dogs." (maybe that's a bit frivolous....) They took this and ran with it. Incidentally, they are AVID dog lovers (almost as nutty as hubby and I are, ) so they came up with such cool suggestions that will make our old dogs' lives (and our lives) easier. As someone who has scoffed at the need for an architect, (come on, my dad is a contractor!) I can assure anyone: the design of a talented architect is worlds apart from what a contractor, or even designer, could come up with. They take things to another level. Glen increased the value of the renovation by making the design in line with architectural design elements, not current trends that would be outdated quickly after installation. More importantly, they made changes to the home to fit OUR lifestyle and needs, instead of us changing our needs and lifestyles to accommodate the home. This is the difference: architects build homes, contractors build houses. Hubby and I are so pleased with our experience at EZPlans. They make incredible planning, design and architecture...easy. :)

I enjoyed working with Rey for the past 12 years. Rey is talented, good listener and have a great sense of design. I'm a Real Estate developer and used Rey's services for my own home and for all of my house flips and developments. I highly recommend him.

I have had the pleasure of working with Marcos and his team on a project for one of my retail stores. He is the most caring, attentive and most importantly the best Architect I have ever worked with. I will work with him again with any project that requires an Architect. This is my experience short and sweet. Of course much more involved. You can call me if you would like to get a more detailed account. Just get my number from Marcos or his team, I will be happy to talk to you in more detail. Jay.

Our company is presently working with Chris Stage and we so pleased with the projects he is involved with currently. Chris Stage is an excellent young Architect who makes our custom home projects go effortlessly. He is very patient, thinks outside of the box and attends all of our onsite meetings with a smile and afterwards we all receive minutes from our meetings. His ideas are innovative, current and he works very closely with the construction team, designer and homeowner throughout the entire project. I would recommend Cart Blanche Studio over and over again, he is amazing! Lisa Vitta Home Beach Designs

Joe came out and did an entire inspection of my house at no cost. He gave my wife and I specific advice on what we could do to give ourselves more space. Joe gave us absolutely no pressure about making the improvements that he discussed. As it turned out, we didn't make any changes, but Joe was very helpful, and when we do need to add to or change our house we will definitely talk to Joe again.

This was a fabulous job. My house went from merely OK to better than my wildest dreams. I now have a new, bright larger kitchen with a separate laundry room, a bathroom and walk-in closet in the master bedroom, a closet that creates a foyer and display niches for my collection of Pueblo pottery and Navajo rugs.
