Featured Reviews for Los Altos, CA Architects and Building Designers

Tom Meaney Architect, AIA
Los Altos, CA Architects and Building Designers
December 18, 2013
The process of designing and building a home on the west coast while we lived on the east coast would have been a challenge. Tom made it easy and fun. He was available whenever we needed him throughout the design and build process. Best of all, Tom is now one of our good friends.
modern house architects
Los Altos, CA Architects and Building Designers
December 19, 2010
We have a mid-century modern house that we wanted to remodel. It took quit a few tries to find an architect who "gets it." Curt Cline from Modern House took our mid- century modern and made it current with out loosing the original charm. It's like the way the house should of been built in the beginning. Curt listened to what we wanted and came back with a design that far exceeded our imagination. With the other architects we felt we would have to educate ourselves, design what we wanted and just have them draw up the plans. Curt's been a dream to work with, he worked with us patiently through all are questions and ideas. We worked out all the little details and have a final plan. As soon as spring comes we will start our remodel. Can't Wait. Chris DeBruine
Fergus Garber Architects
Los Altos, CA Architects and Building Designers
December 11, 2012
FGY Architects are very personable, creative and professional. My husband and I enjoyed several conversations with the main architects, Catherine Fergus and Dan Garber about the why, how and what we would change in our home to make it more livable for our family. We both happened to practice industrial designer, which made the creative process with the Garbers' most enjoyable, by being able to describe our ideas verbally and by sketching them in our meetings. Our project grew in size and budget during the process but since our plan was to be in our remodeled home for many decades, the increases have been worth it. To this day, we appreciate several ideas which both Catherine and Dan suggested from the expansion of the front porch, to enlarging doorways and creating an open feeling between rooms and hallways in relationship.
Edmonds + Lee Architects
Los Altos, CA Architects and Building Designers
April 1, 2015
We hired Edmonds + Lee for a major interior remodel of a 4,000 square foot home in Pacific Heights in San Francisco, including the addition of a roof deck. The work started in 2013 and lasted about 18 months. We interviewed 7 other architects as well, and chose Edmonds + Lee with no hesitation because we were very impressed by the strong interest they showed in the project, even at the early stage when our ideas on the scope of the project itself were still forming, and because they had a clear design aesthetic that was very close to our sensibility. Both Robert Edmonds and Vivian Lee were heavily involved in the project, as was Eddy Joaquim, who also played a key role in the day to day managing of the project. Vivian had great input in the interior decoration as well. We cannot say enough good things about all of them. They helped us develop our vision for the house, and provided an excellent interface between our vision and the builders’ implementation. Their structured and methodical attention to detail throughout the process gave us enormous confidence—we knew that even if we missed something, they would not. Edmonds + Lee were also excellent at maintaining clear communication with us and the contractors, setting realistic expectations on timelines and budgets, which helped make us feel in control of the project. They were able to come up with design solutions that truly transformed the feel of the house—in our case restructuring the main hallway entrance and creating the stairs access to the roof deck are probably the best examples. We have worked with architects before (in London) and never been disappointed, but this is definitely the best experience we have had. We would definitely choose Edmonds + Lee again for any future project. Working with Edmonds + Lee puts a mark on your house with a clear unifying sense of design that runs through the residence, creating a space with clean modern lines which is at the same time warm and welcoming—exactly what we were after.
Norwell Design Build
Los Altos, CA Architects and Building Designers
August 15, 2016
We had a great experience working with Mike and Ian at Norwell Design Build. They have a unique talent for setting an overall vision and following through with exquisite detail. As first-time renovators, we asked tons of questions and they listened, developed creative solutions and incorporated our ideas as well. In partnership, we were able to marry form and function in all the best ways. We *love* our home and would highly recommend working with them (and their incredible team) to create your own dream home!
Timeline Design + Build
Los Altos, CA Architects and Building Designers
September 22, 2012
Timeline Design designed and build our 6,000 sq ft house. They took our ideas and made them better. As the project progressed they improved the design and solved problems as the reality of the construction unveiled ways to make it better or address issues. This was done as a matter of course, not as a way to jack up the price through change orders. Most of these changes did, in fact, not change the price. Some did require extra or different materials or effort but these only added T&M charges. We are still delighted with our house 7 years after it was completed. Timeline Design still sends people out to fix or address any issues we have as they arise. Timeline Design is an honest, committed and talented designer/builder. I can't recommend them high enough!
Studio Bergtraun AIA
Los Altos, CA Architects and Building Designers
February 5, 2014
My wife and I have one of the most beautiful and functional kitchens in all of California thanks to Studio Bergtraun. Somehow, Alex managed to make a 13X13 space into a perfect kitchen for us and we have enjoyed it every day. His creativity and ability to see the big picture is something that we really appreciated. After two years of enjoying our kitchen, we wouldn't change a single thing Alex recommended.

They produce good designs that tend to be on the more modern end of the spectrum. Carl, the founder has a good aesthetic as does Tom. They are not ideal if you have a tight budget as they put design ahead of cost.
John Lum Architecture, Inc. AIA
Los Altos, CA Architects and Building Designers
April 3, 2011
We used John Lum Architecture for the complete remodel of ~1000 sq ft in San Francisco. John and team were fantastic to work with. Very creative yet good at listening to our thoughts and integrating our ideas. They understand how to both design a gorgeous contemporary space while still keeping it comfortable and livable. We depended on them with a lot of design detail recommendations such as fixtures, paint, tiles and they always had great suggestions that made the process much simpler and easy to manage. They are very professional, extremely responsive and timely. There were no surprises during the entire process including on deadlines and budgets. I would strongly recommend them.
