Featured Reviews for Los Altos, CA Architects and Building Designers

Stotler Design Group
Los Altos, CA Architects and Building Designers
November 30, 2012
“Scott Stotler is a consummate professional and wonderful to work with. I admire his attention to detail, superb design, and ability to create livable spaces. Scott can suggest intelligent, workable and attractive solutions for the most demanding. I have photographed many of his amazing designs and he continues to surprise me with his diversity of styles and size.”
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!”
Winder Gibson Architects
Los Altos, CA Architects and Building Designers
August 24, 2016
“Geoff Gibson of Winder Gibson was the architect for the complete rebuild of my 1907 San Francisco house adding about 1000 sq. ft. His design was phenomenal - adding soaring spaces and light filled rooms I did not think possible. His design respected the traditional elements of the house and added modern spaces in complete keeping with the old nature of the house.. Geoff was very easy to work with and we met multiple times going over various design ideas. Geoff was also very helpful in helping in selecting an appropriate builder to carry out his design. I highly recommend Geoff Gibson”
ODS Architecture
Los Altos, CA Architects and Building Designers
August 25, 2012
“The staff at Ohashi Design Studio helped me design my kitchen/living space. I wanted to open up our galley kitchen to be able to see our incredible view from the kitchen. They came up with a design I never imagined could work so well. Rather than just remove a wall, they moved the kitchen, changed it to a more functional shape and not only opened up the view, but made the living space feel like we were outside. I have been especially impressed with their level of service. They listened to my dreams and goals and turned it into a reality beyond what I'd hoped for. They were available anytime I needed guidance during construction and made sure the project was built down to the finest details. They helped me find a contractor and oversaw the bidding process. They helped pick out all the materials and finishes, even the paint color. I can't say enough about their level of expertise and professionalism. I worked with Dave and Alan.”
Schneider Design Associates - SDA
Los Altos, CA Architects and Building Designers
February 19, 2015
“This the second time I've had the pleasure of working with Marshall Schneider. He listened carefully to my ideas, added his own experienced ideas and designed a house that will be the family gathering place for many generations. The home is simple, welcoming, easily maintained and spectacularly designed to take advantage of the sun, light and views. Marshall has a calm, low key approach that is both professional and effective. He worked well with the subs and provided critical interfacing with the general contractor. Marshall met deadlines consistently and helped to keep the project within budget. I appreciate his humor, suggestions, and diligent attention to detail. His notes and construction plans were accurate and easy to understand for all the trades. I would hire him again in a heart beat.”
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.”
Lean Lens Architects
Los Altos, CA Architects and Building Designers
July 17, 2016
“Laxmi, helped us to think about our needs when we were considering getting our landscaping done. Prioritizing our needs has proved very helpful. The backyard is utilized well. The design looks pleasing to eye and even though we have kept some decent amount of paver stones (saves water) it does not look harsh. Overall it we are extremely pleased with the results!”
Fougeron Architecture FAIA
Los Altos, CA Architects and Building Designers
October 26, 2012
“Anne Fougeron is a brilliant, inspired architect. She designed a stunning, unique home for us that incorporated all modern but also green and cost-friendly materials. Her designs are complex in their incipience while the resulting aestetic is clean, simple, and modern. She is committed to and involved in her projects and is always accessible for questions and guidance. She's also a fun and interesting person to work with.”
