Featured Reviews for Marin City, CA Architects and Building Designers

Gregory Dedona Architect
Marin City, CA Architects and Building Designers
Jul 9, 2013
“I'm the fortunate and proud owner of two custom homes designed by Greg Dedona. One is in Mill Valley, Marin County (1999, remodel) and the other is in McCloud, Siskiyou County (2013, tear-down & full new construction). Greg's mastery of design, materials and construction processes created two stunning, unique, buildable and affordable homes. His ability to creatively merge our family's goals, an evolving joint vision for the houses and the highly different administrative processes of these two sharply contrasting counties was something I believe very few (if any?) other architects could achieve. From the most rural contractor resources in Siskiyou to the most experienced and high-end pros in Marin, Greg demonstrated an ability to forge loose and disparate bands of craftsmen into a cohesive team. His leadership was respected by everyone involved - strikingly unusual in the often friction-plagued relationships one sees between contractor and architect. Perhaps most creatively, our McCloud home made great use of owner-procured (i.e., salvaged!) locally sourced, recycled materials - 100 yr old wood floors, replaned structural doug fir for interior trim, refurbished Wedgewood kitchen stoves etc.. In sharp contrast to architects who often scorn such an approach, Greg was invaluable in his advice on how to make these materials work. He helped us source many of them through his amazing array of contacts not just in Marin, but from Tahoe to the Oregon border. Highest possible rating...were there a lifetime achievement award for residential architecture in California, Greg Dedona has already earned it.”

“Wow! We can't really say enough about how great Matt was to work with. We came to him after already having some pretty solid ideas, but he did a fantastic job of walking the line between respecting what we had already decided and adding some suggestions that might work better. After being frustrated with a lack of response from contractors, painters, tilers, and others involved in a remodel, it was so refreshing to find Matt and his promptness in replying to our emails. Having gotten used to having to wait a few days to hear from others, it was so great to hear back from Matt within a few hours. Matt was extremely helpful with linking us up with engineers and other subcontractors, including working with the city regarding permits and passing along some discounts that he was able to get for certain supplies. We have already recommended him to a few other friends and would not hesitate to do so again in the future.”
Joseph Farrell Architecture
Marin City, CA Architects and Building Designers
Feb 6, 2014
“Joe was exactly what we needed for our home remodel/addition project. We came in with lots of ideas but couldn't figure out how to pull it together and make it work. Joe was a great listener and quick to pick up on our style and needs, and in no time he was bringing solutions that we would never have come up with. In addition to being a real pro, Joe is very personable and a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended.”
Mahoney Architects & Interiors
Marin City, CA Architects and Building Designers
Nov 14, 2012
“We have enjoyed working with Colleen and her excellent design team. They are creative, bring cutting edge knowledge for green building design and know how to get a project through design review and permitting processes. Years of designing homes has equipped them with a comprehensive understanding for construction costs and what it takes to get a house to built. Fabulous expertise!”
Richardson Architects
Marin City, CA Architects and Building Designers
Jan 14, 2014
“Heidi Richardson is a fantastic, collaborative architect. We hired Richardson Architects in 1996 for the remodel/great room addition of our single-story house in Palo Alto built in the 1950s. Her design skills are obvious, but beyond that I want to highlight her professionalism, honesty, and reliability - promises were kept, things delivered on time, budgets were followed. Her office in Mill Valley (then Sausalito) was a bit far from us, but communication with her was excellent, we had an initial meeting at the site before purchase, then a meeting at our prior home in Mountain View, then several in-person meetings at her office, and almost daily communication during construction via faxes, emails, and phone calls. She is extremely quick and effective with her time, and was key to the success of the project. My wife and I shared many ideas which she edited and integrated into the design, and it was a joy to work together with her. More recently (2012), Heidi helped us with a much smaller bathroom remodel and with concept-phase ideas for a backyard cottage. I would not hesitate to work with her again.”
Verdigris
Marin City, CA Architects and Building Designers
Sep 26, 2013
“As a professional designer, I spend my days obsessing over the minutia of television commercials, websites and print advertising. So you can imagine how challenging it might be to find an architectural firm who shares in this ethic. I'm happy to say that Verdigris fits the bill perfectly. They have helped us design modifications to our Mill Valley home (bathroom, living room, and dining room) over the past decade, and I am thrilled with the results. While it's a pleasure to work with a firm which has excruciating attention to detail, I find it refreshing that they are equally skillful at the big picture. Verdigris helped us prioritize our goals, focus our thinking, and made creative (and cost saving!) suggestions throughout the process. Bonus: they are small enough that your job won't be handed off to an intern or junior architect. Chip and Brian are both seasoned pros and on top of their game.”
Robert Stiles Architecture
Marin City, CA Architects and Building Designers
Oct 24, 2013
“We have worked with Rob for several years now on a few projects and he always does an amazing job. In addition to being an extremely talented architect, he is very easy to work with. We completely gutted our kitchen and Rob oversaw the entire project while we were away. I had assumed that we would need to hire a kitchen designer along with an architect, but Rob was able to design a beautiful and also incredibly functional kitchen. Having lived with our new kitchen for over 2 years now, there isn't a single thing I would change. He has a great aesthetic and was also extremely helpful in picking out hardware, lighting, and appliances. We have also had him work on the outside of our house and he is currently working on several bedrooms, bathrooms and an office. Rob is very efficient and detail oriented - his drawings are very thorough which always helps make the projects go smoothly.”
Carl C. Oldenburg AIA
Marin City, CA Architects and Building Designers
Aug 29, 2016
“When we first interviewed Carl many years ago, we were impressed by his ability to problem solve with the client and create positive outcomes with problematic situations. That impression proved true in all our projects with Carl. Our first project involved turning a ranch style home into a two story home. The staircase was a bit tricky but Carl created a gorgeous staircase that really pulled the whole project together. Our second project was a rescue on Carl's part. We were planning major winterization and expansion of a summer home including all new kitchen and garage with apartment. Unfortunately, our relationship with the architect in that state deteriorated to an unacceptable level. After calling Carl for advice on dealing with this, we fired the other architect and hired Carl. He worked with the plans we had and immediately identified the problems and suggested the perfect solutions. He attended a Coastal Area Committee meeting to make sure the plans and project were accepted. Our third project was just this past year on the second home. It entailed creating a new master bath and walk-in closet by moving rooms and the addition of a screened porch. Once again, Carl listened to what we were trying to accomplish and came up with exactly what we wanted. Another aspect to Carl's work is that the builders we have used have been impressed with his plans.”

“We hired Barry because we saw the beautiful work he has done for so many of our neighbors. I am an interior designer and have worked with many architects so this was a leap for me. Barry has been a DELIGHT to work with. He is smart, professional, timely in his response, flexible, and works well with the other professionals on our project. I have found that architects are often either technical architects or design architects. Barry is a creative design architect first, but all his technical skills are excellent as well. He has done extensive drawings, worked seamlessly with all engineers and contractors, gotten our permits, and made us feel that we have a true advocate throughout the process. I would highly recommend him. You will be so happy you did!”
WA Design Architects
Marin City, CA Architects and Building Designers
May 17, 2013
“David Wilson and WA Design have been the architects on two homes for our family, one in the Oakland Hills and one in Napa, California, on a rock-filled challenging site. They have been wonderful and responsive to work with, embracing our ideas in the spirit of collaboration. Designing and building a home is a very personal experience, and to be successful the firm you hire should be a pleasure to work with on many levels. This firm definitely is. David became a good friend during and after our process on the first home, and that made the second project even easier. Their style is warm contenporary, so easy to live in. I have contacted him about questions after the completion of both projects and he has been more than helpful, continuing to get information for me and share ideas. Both houses have hosted several events (best kitchens, touring unique houses, etc) and I continue to receive compliments: "I love your house, it's the best house architecture I've seen"; "I'm impressed by the views, light, organic flow and peacefulness of this homes", and many, many more positive comments. I strongly recommend this firm if you want to create a one of a kind home ! PS Hire them and I'll be jealous, I want to build a house with them again.”
