Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Maplewood, NJ
Clawson Architects, LLC
Architects and Building Designers in Maplewood, NJ
"Very pleased with work from Clawson Architects - Rene, Marvin and their team. Over a number of years they have supported 2 projects at our house - new bathroom, new kitchen and other changes that made the house meet our needs. In the last job, we had ambitious plans, they listened to why we wanted to do it and suggested a smarter, much lower cost approach that gave us exactly what we needed. One innovative idea that no one had suggested in 10 years of our living there until they and it saved me quite a lot of money. Their work is thorough and top notch."

CBH Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Maplewood, NJ
"I have on several occasions hired architects-designers, but Bob stands out head and shoulders above everyone. Bob listens carefully to your needs, and brings extensive expertise and creativity to his work. Bob created a new walk-in closet for us, and we ended up with a result that exceeded my vision for it — and well within budget."

Boerner Lay Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Maplewood, NJ
"Cindy was our architect for a tear-down/rebuild of our home. My wife and I found Cindy to be very insightful and creative, offerred us lots of options in design, and never expressed concern or hesitation in drafting or constructing some complicated elements we wanted in the home. She brought knowledge, experience and enthusiasm, but most of all comfort to a project which could otherwise have been a stressfull experience. Without question, we would hire Cindy again in the future without the need to go to bid."

Mowery Marsh Architects LLC
Architects and Building Designers in Maplewood, NJ
"Jen is wonderful to work with. She has amazing attention to detail and works to the highest standard. From detailed drawings to construction management, she really is the complete package. We could not be happier with how our house turned out."

Vincentsen•Blasi Architecture, LLC
Architects and Building Designers in Maplewood, NJ
"Vincentsen Associates are the architects you call when you want to be absolutely sure you are respecting the great bones in your old home. Their attention to the smallest detail and historical understanding of the appropriateness of choices stand them apart. Homes that have had the opportunity to be designed by this team never show themselves: their "additions" are seamless and their "renovations" only redefine the homes' glory. Highly recommend."

Douglas VanderHorn Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Maplewood, NJ
"When my husband and I took on the project of completely renovating an 1846 Greek Revival house in the back country of Greenwich, we ran into difficulties with the architect we had hired. Doug VanderHorn came to our rescue! Many architects might have been unwilling to take on a project that had already started, but Doug, to my everlasting gratitude, not only agreed to work with us, but brought fresh, new, creative and improved ideas to the table. His taste is impeccable and he ended up helping me with all kinds of related issue like bathroom tiles, special effects in moldings and fireplaces and placement of furniture in a difficult room. He is easy to work with and very realistic in his suggestions. I could not recommend him more highly! -Mrs. Russell S. Reynolds, Jr."

"We have been so happy to have Jordan as our architect. He has spent so many hours helping us achieve our dream home. No words can be said how happy we are. Thank you Jordan"

BENJAMIN ANDRES ARCHITEKT
Architects and Building Designers in Maplewood, NJ
"Benjamin’s approach to planning, developing and designing is exquisite. He has incredible eyes and understanding of how to move the design process from concept to reality. He designed a vacation home for me by merging and shaping my numerous needs with conflicting styles into a beautiful home. He is easy to work with and very talented in helping to realize your vision. No matter the size of the project, the level of detail and attention is impeccable!"
- Mark Ayoola
Ben Herzog
Architects and Building Designers in Maplewood, NJ
"I found Ben Herzog Architects while browsing Houzz.com. I would add photos to my ideabook and discovered that most of the projects were done by Ben! Ben has been great helping us decide how we can maximize space in our 1917 Brooklyn row house. We have decided on a more open floor plan, new wood plank floors, high hat lighting, a bit larger kitchen space with higher ceiling and an island, a shallow broom closet and banquette seating in our dining room. The demolition began 9/5/12 and as a result we have discovered that we can open up the doorway openings even more than planned! Ben is happily revising his drawings and I can't wait to see the changes! Ben and his team are easy to work with and very helpful with design and product ideas while keeping our budget in mind!"

How do I find the best Maplewood 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 New Jersey 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 Maplewood 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 Maplewood, NJ 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 Maplewood, NJ 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 Maplewood 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?
