MacPherson Construction and Design
Architects and Building Designers in Issaquah, WA
"We hired the professional services of MacPhearson; we communicated our design desires, and they delivered it beyond our expectations; and thereafter the construction went according to schedule, and we were 100% pleased with the finished product!"

Lane Williams Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Issaquah, WA
"Lane Williams took our dated and very tired looking 1960’s one story, pitched roof home with a daylight basement and transformed it into a beautiful modern home with strong horizontal and vertical planes and cantilevered masses. Lane's vision for the house really came together when we decided to spend the money to expand the carport to two cars. We were thinking it might not work, but when he showed us the renderings we both just thought wow – it balanced everything out and got us a look that was spectacular. The finished house got great reactions from the neighbors, and it still thrills us when we overhear the bicyclists as they zip by saying ‘Cool House!’ http://coop15.com/images/house_shows/Enatai/Enatai2before.jpg http://coop15.com/images/house_shows/Enatai/Enatai3.jpg http://coop15.com/images/house_shows/Enatai/Enatai1.jpg"

Coates Design Architects Seattle
Architects and Building Designers in Issaquah, WA
"We've toured the residential and commercial projects created on Bainbridge Island by Coates Design, and have followed their work for years. Our office was in the same building, and we often stopped in to learn more about their projects. We've always been impressed by their great architectural sense of aesthetics, and their ability to create innovative work that blends well into the surroundings of the project location. Very professional, very pleasant and very accomplished."

CAST architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Issaquah, WA
"My wife and I have used Matt Hutchins and CAST Architecture for two remodels and would go back for a third. We have found Matt to be very easy to work with. He has a great ability to synthesize our needs and space constraints into comfortable, livable spaces. For example, in our first remodel, moving the kitchen (something we hadn't considered) made all the difference. In our second remodel, expanding the back porch (again, something we hadn't considered) added a new dimension to the house from the street, a utilitarian space for barbecue and storage, and also a very functional transition space. Matt has also been very good at adapting his good tastes in finishes and furnishings to our sense of style—building upon what we like rather than overriding it. Wed'd recommend Matt very highly."

FINNE Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Issaquah, WA
"Nils Finne has a deep knowledge of design, a modern appreciation for craft and detail, and an uncanny ability to design homes with a fresh spirit and vitality. We've worked with Finne Architects on an extenstion renovation and a new build in a remote location, and in both projects we were impressed with Nils' ability to carefully listen to and translate our needs and values into the homes we love today. He's a consumate professional: on budget, on time, incredibly responsive, and always a pleasure to work with. "

Everyone at AOME have proven to be experts in their industry, and we at Quantum look forward to many years of collaboration to come!"

Gelotte Hommas Drivdahl Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Issaquah, WA
"My wife and I used Gelotte Hommas for our remodel. We have a 1937 Brick Tudor that when added onto we wanted it to look as if the new part of the house had always been there from an architectural standpoint. They did an incredible job using original designs and pulling them through on the exterior. They also gave us tons of ideas we would never have come up with on the interior had we done it ourselves. We are very a happy with the project. Our neighbors even comment on how well the new addition ties into the original house. That is the main judge of quality in my opinion!"

How do I find the best Issaquah 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 Washington 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 Issaquah 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 Issaquah, WA 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 Issaquah, WA 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 Issaquah 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?
