"Kai Geschke combined creativity and german efficiancy to design the perfect custom home for us! He listened carefully to our wants and needs and incorporated them beautifully into the technical work he did as our architect.

Element 5 Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Hays, TX
"We hired architect Richard Hughes, of Element 5 Architecture, to redesign the living areas of our 1957 home. We wanted more light and greater functionality for the space. From the beginning, Richard was professional, approachable, listened to our needs, and communicated his concept well. He was also open to the ideas that my husband and I had about our project and incorporated many of those into the final design. Work was done in a timely manner, and the final result is a more inviting and useable space that’s great for entertaining and for everyday living."

Elliot Johnson, AIA - Images Of...
Architects and Building Designers in Hays, TX
"Our builder recommended Elliott as one of the very innovative architects. Elliott was green long before green building was cool. He listened to our high level requirements, showed us various plans and provided us his references, visited our lot, sat down with us multiple times, and eventually came up with a very unique PORTE-COCHÈRE design. We built a beautiful custom house with little to no surprises with his guidance along the way. After 10 years in this house, we could not have been happier!"

Danze & Davis Architects, Inc.
Architects and Building Designers in Hays, TX
"I can't tell you how much I love our Lake Travis home Donovan Davis drew/designed for us. I am certainly not the easiest to please and I am absolutely thrilled with the end results. Donovan was able to capture the lake views from every room and achieved it with amazing style and design. Not only do we have a view from every room but we can see the stars and the moon from several rooms which is truly amazing and one of my favorite features! Donovan was fun to work with, he listened to all of our wants and made my dreams a reality. He surpassed all of my expectations and his passion for Architectures shows when you look at my home. We have had numerous people stop to say how much they like the design of our home so don't hesitate to use this firm they are true professionals that love what they do! Thank you Donovan and Harrison Davis!"

C-Reese Architectural Design
Architects and Building Designers in Hays, TX
"I have worked with Celeste on multiple projects as the home builder/remodeler. She has been a delight to work with. I really enjoy building off of her plans because they are very detailed and descriptive, not much is left up to interpretation. When issues arise, as they do with any project, she is very helpful in working out solutions and is very easy to work with. Designers sometimes have a tendency to select materials/finishes that are "pretty" but can no way be implemented the way they are envisioning them. Not Celeste, she understands how things fit together on the job site. She has great construction knowledge in materials and methods. This knowledge and the attention to detail that she puts into every design makes every project a success."

Vanguard Studio Inc.
Architects and Building Designers in Hays, TX
"John from Vanguard Studio, is extremely easy to work with. I worked with him as both a client and as a builder representing clients and had great experiences with him and his extemely helpful and friendly staff. John is very talented and has a great eye for scale and proportions as well as great architectural details. He designs beautiful homes and anyone will be lucky to work with John to design their home."
- New Urban Home Builders
Webber + Studio, Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Hays, TX
"As a contractor I LOVE working with Webber+ Studio. Their plans are fantastic, they do their own interiors, and they are very detailed. This allows me to give detailed and correct bids with very few allowance assumptions. This saves their clients huge amounts of cash and headaches by making these decisions in the pre-construction time. Very few firms have this mix of good office management and amazing design savvy. I very highly recommend them!"
- Risinger Homes
McKinney York Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Hays, TX
"I have worked with Heather McKinney on the following projects: Canyon House , Austin, Texas 1984, a residence on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia 2003 twice on a Ranch House in Stephenville, Texas 2008 and earlier, referred her firm McKinney York to a client in San Antonio, Texas and worked on this new residence in Shavano Park 2006. This year I was referred by this firm to an Austin client to arrange furniture and bring in an picture hanging consultant.I was most impressed with the spaces, materials, and lighting in this remodel. McKinney York Artachitects pays great attention to detail, and has the highest level of expertise in green and sustainable design. The principals and staff are even tempered and good natured. I refer McKinney York to clients because the designs will be innovative, the overall cost will be within the client's budget, and because they work extremely well with the contractors and the consultants. The design awards bestowed upon this firm reflect a union of client's program, budget, taste, consultants and extremely talented architects."

How do I find the best Hays 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 Texas 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 Hays 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 Hays, TX 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 Hays, TX 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 Hays 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?
