Spivey Architects, Inc.
Architects and Building Designers in Johns Island, SC
"Michael Spivey designed our house. Working with him was a professional and satisfying experience. His commitment to understanding our objectives and producing an outstanding product was exceptional. Having now lived in this home for over five years, we have an even greater appreciation for his ideas, creativity, guidence, and patience with us through the process. He was able to guide us, as first time home builders, through the decision process necessary to achieve a product beyond our expectations and within our budgetary limitations. A lot of give and take was necessary and difficult decisions had to be made but our appreciation of the process and the end result are affirmed daily by our own expierence of living in this home.

DLB Custom Home Design
Architects and Building Designers in Johns Island, SC
"Damien Busillo of DLB Architecture and Design has been a pleasure to work with. Although my husband and I have built four homes in the past this was our first experience with having a custom home design. He has been a great help in finding ways to convey exactly the design we wanted, working with builders in the bidding process, working to help us find the landscape designer that fits our tastes and working wit h our neighborhood ARB to help us get our design approved. Damien has been very flexible to make changes in order to fit our needs and I know that the end product will be a home that we will be so proud to call our own. It's been a pleasure to work with him!"

Herlong & Associates Architects + Interiors
Architects and Building Designers in Johns Island, SC
"We hired Steve Herlong and his staff to design our first custom home 12 years ago and to renovate our 1950's beach house 6 years ago. In both cases it was a fantastic experience. Steve has such an amazing eye for details, he HEARS what you want and creates a masterpiece with those ideas. His interiors team made our old beach house feel NEW again, but selected colors, cabinetry and fixtures to compliment the style we loved! We could not have created either of these amazing homes without the help of such a talented staff!"

Cobb Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Johns Island, SC
"What can we say? Darryl and the Cobb Architects team designed our dream home. Now that it is complete, we get compliments about how awesome and beautiful it is from family/friends and people just walking by. Our first meeting, Darryl just listened...to our needs, our lifestyle and our aspirations for the home. Based on his approach, we were 90% there on the 1st design. Darryl took into consideration our words and added architectural design, how it would fit into the locale, and made it one of a kind. Along the way, we encountered a few necessary changes in the field, and Darryl made suggestions, collaborated directly with our project manager and designer, and in the end stayed within our budget and improved the overall design. We would recommend Cobb Architects without exception - you truly won't be disappointed."

How do I find the best Johns Island 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 Johns Island 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 Johns Island, 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 Johns Island, 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 Johns Island 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?
