Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Gervais, OR
Giulietti Schouten Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Gervais, OR
"We're really enjoying working with the Giulietti/Schouten team designing our new beach home. When we were searching for an architect, we looked at portfolios from many firms and were struck by the breadth and creativity of their work. The combination of artistry, creativity, flexibility, practicality, and attention to detail they bring to their work is really impressive, and has resulted in a design much better than we envisioned. It's particularly impressive when the complicated site and extreme environment of our oceanfront setting are taken into account. We're very happy with the project and feel fortunate to have found this great group of people to work with! Follow-on now that the project is finished: Our home turned out beautifully. They were extremely helpful during the construction phase, helping us with the multitude of decisions and working with our builder to assure every detail was as it was envisioned. We were really lucky to have their team to work with! We give them our highest recommendation."

Buckenmeyer Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Gervais, OR
"I own a small residential remodel company (Old School Renovations, Inc.) in Portland, OR. Marty has provided basic permit plans and full design services for several of my clients. Marty is as eager to work on the removal of a kitchen wall as he is a full two room addition. He has a great eye for detail (duh) and his x-ray vision comes in handy when pre-planning structural changes to a home. I never hesitate to refer Marty to a client regardless of the size of job. You'll love him."

Steelhead Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Gervais, OR
"We hired Steelhead to help us remodel our kitchen and bathrooms in our house. Those rooms were all original to the construction of the house in 1998 and looked dated while the rest of the house was very modern and contemporary. Gabe was great to work with as we planned the renovations. He helped us think through updating the rooms to be more contemporary, provided us with great suggestions and delivered extremely detailed plans. All our contractors were extremely happy with the level of detail in the plans. The level of service from Gabe was great. He was very responsive and clearly communicated timelines."

"We are thrilled that our Origami Coffee Table was selected for a recent project. It was such a treat to collaborate with Fig Studio. They do such beautiful work!"

Howells Architecture + Design
Architects and Building Designers in Gervais, OR
"We have had the pleasure of working with Michael on three projects -- to the studs kitchen and bathroom remodels on our home, as well as the building of an Accessory Dwelling Unit (or "mother in law" apartment/800 SF house) in our back yard. Michael has a fantastic eye for clean and timeless designs that match the character of not only the house, but the homeowners as well. While he willingly shares his opinions, we always felt he listened to us and respected both our budget and how we actually live, work and play in our spaces. We have recommended Michael to friends in the past and would do so again in a heartbeat. (As I am mentioning 3 projects, and the space below only allows for one project cost, here is a rough breakdown: the kitchen remodel was in the $50k range, the bath in the $25k and the ADU came in at right around $100k.)"

Alan Mascord Design Associates Inc
Architects and Building Designers in Gervais, OR
"We worked with Eric Schnell at Mascord to design our new home. We had specific ideas about what we wanted and were unable to find a "stock" plan that had it all. He worked with us to design an amazing new home. He was patient and listened to us as we described our new home. He gave great suggestions and was honest when our ideas weren't within the scope of our project. I would highly recommend him if you are looking for an architect to design a new home or remodel your existing one."

Richard Brown Architect AIA
Architects and Building Designers in Gervais, OR
"Richard and his staff were a pleasure to deal with. He was able, after some mild beatings, to assimilate our ideas and add his own to create a very useful amalgam. We still enjoy his input and appreciation of space. Our error was failing to hire him to supervise construction, in addition to designing the building."

Blondino Design, Inc.
Architects and Building Designers in Gervais, OR
"Mike Blondino was great to work with! He ensures that your house is exactly what you're looking for and is truly invested in his designs. He does phenomenal work and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to design a house."

Emerick Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Gervais, OR
"Emerick Architects are outstanding in their field. They designed the remodel of our 1906 craftsman colonial in Portland, Oregon, updating and rearranging much of the space but staying true to its old soul and its surroundings. It's a fantastic remodel. And working with them was terrific as well - from the first meeting, where they listened, asked great questions, and tried to understand just what we wanted - through the planning phase and on into construction. We liked them so much we've recommended them to friends, including our next-door neighbors. And we're not easy graders. We'd use them again in a heartbeat."

How do I find the best Gervais 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 Oregon 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 Gervais 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 Gervais, OR 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 Gervais, OR 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 Gervais 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?
