Kustom Home Design
Architects and Building Designers in Greenville, SC
"We love our new kitchen! The design was so much better than anything else we had seen. It's a perfect design and Kim was great to work with. It's amazing that even thought we took out three walls, there is more storage and counter space than before. Everything turned out better than expected. Can't say enough nice things about it."

Most importantly, Mark listened to every word, always willing to adapt to changes or suggest a new way to do something. Mark's innate attention to detail further compliments his fabulous designs.

Arcisan, Inc.
Architects and Building Designers in Greenville, SC
"I have hired Ben Settle at Arcisan, Inc long before he started this company. Haven't looked for another since. I have used him on so many projects that I have lost count. He is a rare find in the residential design and build world. He is extremely detail-oriented, creative, thinks outside the box and he actually understands construction and how buildings go together. Such a rare find in the design world. Just because you can dream it...doesn't mean you can build it. So having someone that understands construction makes him a great find. You know his designs will work in the real world. I highly recommend him for residential design projects."
- Sonya Brown

He's is such a joy to work with, I've never met anyone with a better attitude or willingness to do whatever it takes to make a client happy. Their designs are innovative and beautiful is just an understatement. Truly, you'd be foolish to go with anyone else but him. Working with him is not only easy but the most fun I've ever had on a job. I highly, highly, highly recommend them!"
- Michelle Hood

How do I find the best Greenville 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 South Carolina 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 Greenville 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 Greenville, SC 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 Greenville, SC 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 Greenville 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?
