Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Lake Pleasant, MA
Demetriades + Walker
Architects and Building Designers in Lake Pleasant, MA
"Our Project was an 1300-sf commercial addition to a summer camp/conference center 4 season dining room facility. It included open dining space, an additional egress, and an ADA bathroom. The interior blended in perfectly with the existing dining space and added new modern flare with large windows/views. We were able to seal the addition up tight with foam/fiberglass combo insulation and the large windows were triple pain solar heat absorbing windows to help control our winter heating costs. In the summer, very large/simple shades pull down to mitigate heat gain and some of the pains are operable to let out the hot interior air. The space is not air conditioned. They were excellent at reviewing our needs and coming up with an elegant approach to our project. much to our surprise, they even built a physical model. Its hard to say if it was worth the time to do the model, but it likely abated some questioning and delays on the part of our boards and review committees. They were very considerate of our needs and worked fairly with both us and the contractor. We did have some project challenges as the project bids the first time came in way over expected prices. A testament to their character and focus on delivering a successful/quality project, they performed design modifications (structural/location) and helped us rebid the project with successful results. The changes kept with the original design elegance/simplicity and brought the bids down to a very reasonable fee. We had three change orders on our project and they were all opportunity changes to fix moisture issues on the existing unmodified portion of the building. Basically, they did a very good job scoping the project and including all info on their plans and specs. If I had to pick out any low points it would be their construction cost estimating. However, i still give them 5 stars because when things went astray, they fixed it fast and effectively. Their design prices are not rock bottom but they are MORE than fair for their skill, style, and people friendly manner. I would hire them again in a second for another project."

Hendricks Churchill
Architects and Building Designers in Lake Pleasant, MA
"we asked rafe for ideas and estimates for a number of different projects and scenarios in our home. he had wonderful problem solving ideas balanced with a great design aesthetic and worked hard to keep things within then budget that we gave him. the work was in our kitchen so we left the house and upon returning to the finished project.....skimcoating ceiling, installing light fixtures, replacing sink and countertop, installing stove hood, etc......we were really pleased with the work that was done. clean, sharp edges and finishing touches were one of my favorite details. there was one minor mistake made in the placement of a light fixture but rafe pointed it out to us before we could mention it and had it taken care of by the next day. wonderful experience, highly recommended. we would work with rafe again without hesitation and plan to!!"

Estes Architecture and Design, LLC
Architects and Building Designers in Lake Pleasant, MA
"We have worked with Emily for several years, both in our previous and current residence. Emily is highly knowledgable and brings her wide range of skills and impeccable taste to every project, big or small. My spouse and I share an aesthetic, but have very different ways of approaching projects - what was truly remarkable about Emily was her ability to listen to all viewpoints and to suggest an approach that truly blended our family's needs and vision. Emily is an experienced architect and is expert at finding just the right resources, both local and elsewhere. Highly recommend!!"

Pamela Sandler Architect
Architects and Building Designers in Lake Pleasant, MA
"We've use Pam for two major renovations and numerous small projects,ideas and general help situations. The first was a total renovation and when we had to fire the GC, Pam stepped in and completed the work. The second major work, a lessor renovation 20 years later, is near completion and she and her team has been great to work with. We find her responsive, resourceful, and creative where we needed creativity. This has been not only in the design phase but also in participating and managing the actual implementation of the design. We've recommended her to friends and acquaintances many times."

"We hired Elizabeth to design our kitchen remodel and renovation. We are extremely happy with the work Elizabeth completed. We have an old, New England home with a lot of quirks and Elizabeth was able to work with those quirks to create a cohesive and seamless design. Her professionalism, kind demeanor and keen eye for detail are unparalleled to anyone else we have worked with and we will definitely hire Elizabeth again in the future."

How do I find the best Lake Pleasant 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 Massachusetts 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 Lake Pleasant 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 Lake Pleasant, MA 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 Lake Pleasant, MA 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 Lake Pleasant 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?
