Volume Zero, LLC [architectural design studio]
Architects and Building Designers in New Orleans, LA
"My husband and I purchased a condo in the Warehouse District of New Orleans. It was an open space with generic cabinetry and fixtures. Pretty bare bones. It was going to be a challenge to define the living and dining space in this loft for sure. We hit it off right away with Michael and Van -their communication style was as important as their architectural skills and vision. The process from start to finish was awesome. We ended up with this beautifully designed space -their creativity was second to none. In summary: Hire Volume Zero for your project. Period."

Brian Gille Architects, Ltd.
Architects and Building Designers in New Orleans, LA
"Brian Gille designed and oversaw the building of our uptown home. Our goal was to build a new home that looked like it had been in our neighborhood for years. We wanted the inside to reflect the old New Orleans design as well. Brian's plan for our home exceeded our expectations! Every square inch was designed with care and was optimally utilized. He worked with us to stay within budget while still designing a home that was beautiful and structurally sound. His staff was excellent and extremely professional. Brian saw our project through the build and his advice and guidance was invaluable!"

Albert Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in New Orleans, LA
"Leslie Raymond and Richard Albert designed the renovation for our home- a total restoration of the house which was built in the 1850's in New Orleans. The home had been in disrepair and neglect for many years. My husband and I were interested in restoring the home to it's former glory- preserving the beautiful original elements while renovating to standards of present day living. This was quite a challenge- design wise. From start to finish, Leslie and Richard paid attention to our vision, and produced spectacular results! Always available and ready to answer our questions, Leslie and Richard achieved our dream. The elegant touches that Leslie designed and collaborated with us to execute, have made our home first class in every detail. We are so happy with the restoration, and highly recommend Leslie and Richard as your architects. Susan and Ronnie Mizell"

m a palumbo studio
Architects and Building Designers in New Orleans, LA
"Marie brings to her clients true interior design experience with a great vision for use of space. She actually listens to her clients and uses her architectural design skill to work with them to create great new rooms as well as renovations of kitchens, bathrooms, master suites, closets, as well as other rooms. I enjoy working with her because she also can coordinate and supervise the project and is very well organized with respect to project operations. As the owner of a stone fabrication and installation company (countertops), I like the planning meetings throughout the construction/installation process to ensure the effective and efficient flow of the various working entities."

Bavido Architecture llc
Architects and Building Designers in New Orleans, LA
"Sam Bavido Jr. designed an Acadian in the Hayes Towne tradition on a private lake in Slidell. Sam was immediately approachable, highly knowledgable, and gave us a beautiful home. With personal touches Sam gave our home the character we both identify with including touches of technology to make our home comfortable and very livable. We are planning out next project now and Mr. Bavido of course is our first contact. We know it's the best move to make to begin your dream project as we have. We recommend highly Mr. Bavido's creativity and imaginative purpose for any project. Don't build your home without him."

"Aaron did such great job on my kitchen, living room and bathroom! He turned the images in my head into actual plans for my contractors. He will be doing the balance of my remodel! Any time there was a change on-site, he adjusted it so that we had current plans. Just ask him for his work! You will see the quality! I am incredibly picky and he was better than anything I could have imagined. He met every deadline and was reasonable. I only wish I had more finished photos."

How do I find the best New Orleans 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 Louisiana 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 New Orleans 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 New Orleans, LA 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 New Orleans, LA 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 New Orleans 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?
