Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Garnet Valley, PA
Period Architecture Ltd.
Architects and Building Designers in Garnet Valley, PA
"Joe Mackin and his firm designed us the most beautiful new house. He designed an 1800's style, stone farm house look that is amazing. The attention to detail is incredible. People have been to the house and can't decide if it's just an old house that was added on to, or a new house. We have worked with a handful of architects over the years, and Joe, by far, has been the BEST. We also did not use a builder, my husband an were the general contractors of the house, which is approximately 7,000 sq. feet."

Archer & Buchanan Architecture, Ltd.
Architects and Building Designers in Garnet Valley, PA
"Archer and Buchanan drew up the architectural plans to renovate and build an extension to a Pennsylvania farmhouse. They collaborated throughout the project with the builders.

Rasmussen / Su Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Garnet Valley, PA
"We had a wonderful experience working with Rasmussen/Su on a kitchen renovation. Our home was built in 1879, and it had a cramped and dark kitchen. Kevin & Vivian really listened to what mattered to us (having a space that works for an active family and opens the kitchen up to the rest of the first floor) and they were able to incorporate those things into the design. They have experience with historic homes and local regulations and took care of the arduous permit process. They were there during construction when we ran into the unexpected things you discover in an old house. They also helped with the design details and decisions you have to make during a project. We now have an amazing space where everyone gathers to cook, do homework, and just be together."

Wyant Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Garnet Valley, PA
"Wyant Architecture created beautiful and enriching living spaces for our family. We have worked with Jeff and Maria on many projects in our Philadelphia townhouse (circa 1876) ranging from straightforward renovations of existing bathrooms, to a kitchen renovation which involved moving walls and opening up sight lines, to a very complex addition. Jeff and Maria have an outstanding design sense retaining older features and incorporating contemporary elements in our home. In addition to everything else, Maria is particularly savvy about kitchen design and functionality. Their aesthetic guidance on the selection of materials – wood, tile, glass, metals, paint colors – is invaluable. They are visionary and able to problem solve creatively. They are able to propose creative design solutions that are well within budget. Jeff and Maria have excellent technical skills. Their attention to detail upfront makes the pricing and construction phases go as smoothly and as efficiently as possible. Working with Jeff and Maria is a wonderful experience. They listen attentively and respond promptly and creatively. They collaborate well with everyone – client, contractors, structural engineers, City Hall – and when necessary are strong advocates for their clients. We almost hate to be done with our architectural projects as we miss our regular interaction with them!"

inHabit Architecture and Design
Architects and Building Designers in Garnet Valley, PA
"inHabit Architecture and Design did a complete redesign of my kitchen which included removing a large portion of a wall, and changing the flow of my house for the better. Upon request, Ms. Gusic provided numerous drawings, and explained the benefits of each. The thing that impressed me most was her presentation of the overall design in terms of a long-term strategy. The changes she suggested presented a very holistic view of living in our home as she considered things like sight lines, views, furniture placement, etc for the areas adjacent to the kitchen."

Wolstenholme Associates, LLC
Architects and Building Designers in Garnet Valley, PA
"We have been fortunate enough to work with Wolstenholme Associates on many occasions and have referred them directly to our clients needing building design and architectural work as well. Each time, we hear the same results, and they are always outstanding, which is why Rutgers Landscape Design continues to refer Wolstenholme to our clients. We also look forward to working with them on any Wolstenholme Architectural Plans, as they are always exciting and interesting design projects."

k YODER design, LLC
Architects and Building Designers in Garnet Valley, PA
"It was a pleasure to work with Kevin. His design for our master bath was creative and unique, but more importantly, he incorporated our style into his recommendations. Kevin is a perfectionist and this is reflected in everything he does. We highly recommend him."

Abby Schwartz Associates, LLC
Architects and Building Designers in Garnet Valley, PA
"Abby and her team is top notch. Very creative, and easy to work with. This was the second time we chose them, and couldn't be happier. They listen to the client, and make very thoughtful recommendations. The final drawings were complete, and will make construction easier for the contractors."
- vlandgrl
Princeton Design Collaborative
Architects and Building Designers in Garnet Valley, PA
"We engaged Princeton Design Collaborative to provide design concepts for a small master bathroom addition. The current bathroom configuration was virtually unusable. The two concepts provided were cost effective for the client, and provided an aesthetically appealing design to the front of the home that matched the existing facade. The drawings were extremely complete and detailed as to make the permitting process with the township go smoothly. We look forward to working with John Conroy on future projects, and would highly recommend this company to anyone interested in architectural design concepts and drawings."

How do I find the best Garnet Valley 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 Garnet Valley 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 Garnet Valley, 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 Garnet Valley, 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 Garnet Valley 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?
