"LKM Design completed a whole house renovation (and major addition) with us. I say "with us" versus "for us" intentionally. She listened to all of our thoughts , comments, concerns during the design process. In turn, this lead to a very smooth construction process. She was a true professional, as was her staff. I would highly recommend her for any project!"

Pamela Sandler Architect
Architects and Building Designers in Northfield, MA
"We've use Pam for two major renovations and numerous small projects,ideas and general help situations. The first was a total renovation and when we had to fire the GC, Pam stepped in and completed the work. The second major work, a lessor renovation 20 years later, is near completion and she and her team has been great to work with. We find her responsive, resourceful, and creative where we needed creativity. This has been not only in the design phase but also in participating and managing the actual implementation of the design. We've recommended her to friends and acquaintances many times."
- resalerno
Maple Valley Design Build, Inc.
Architects and Building Designers in Northfield, MA
"Greg and Cliff did a spectacular job from start to finish. Greg's design of the mud room addition and garage brought out the best of the original house and provided a very functional, inviting and warm curb appeal. They were always punctual and met deadlines. Attention to detail and follow up was phenomenal. Having the architect oversee the job in every phase of the build is tremendously valuable."
- bobdebouver
Estes Architecture and Design, LLC
Architects and Building Designers in Northfield, MA
"We have worked with Emily for several years, both in our previous and current residence. Emily is highly knowledgable and brings her wide range of skills and impeccable taste to every project, big or small. My spouse and I share an aesthetic, but have very different ways of approaching projects - what was truly remarkable about Emily was her ability to listen to all viewpoints and to suggest an approach that truly blended our family's needs and vision. Emily is an experienced architect and is expert at finding just the right resources, both local and elsewhere. Highly recommend!!"
- Anat Weisenfreund
MORGAN STUDIO Architecture & Interiors

"We hired Elizabeth to design our kitchen remodel and renovation. We are extremely happy with the work Elizabeth completed. We have an old, New England home with a lot of quirks and Elizabeth was able to work with those quirks to create a cohesive and seamless design. Her professionalism, kind demeanor and keen eye for detail are unparalleled to anyone else we have worked with and we will definitely hire Elizabeth again in the future."

How do I find the best Northfield 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 Massachusetts 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 Northfield 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 Northfield, MA 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 Northfield, MA 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 Northfield 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?
