John Lum Architecture, Inc. AIA
Architects, Firms & Building Designers in Novato
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsApril 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.

Rob did an excellent job in all respects and was very easy to work with. I'm sure the job was more difficult and took longer than he originally estimated but that didn't seem to faze him in the slightest. He even recommended an excellent contractor to do the work and immediately took care of every little problem that cropped up during the construction. Would not hesitate for a minute before using RPS Design in the future.

I have work with Jim on a few of his project as a general contractor. Jim is amazing in the way he provides thorough details and continuity of meeting notes and feedback. I would work with Jim anytime and I would recommend his service to anybody who needs a great architect.

Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsNovember 30, 2016
We worked with Urrutia Design on a complete home renovation. Jason and Martha listened to our ideas and translated them into their design aesthetic. Their cohesive design runs throughout the entire house and they incorporated our family's specific needs resulting in a more usable, beautiful space. We are thrilled with our new home!
Daniel Ruark, Architect
Architects, Firms & Building Designers in Novato
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsOctober 23, 2016
Aaron Green could not have asked for a more worthy heir than Daniel Ruark, just as Frank Lloyd Wright could not have asked for a more worthy heir than Aaron Green. In 2013, I purchased a small residence on the Stanford campus designed by Aaron Green, a real gem of a house that had an outdoor tool shed in the carport area. I consulted Ruark about transforming the shed into a master bathroom that would incorporate into the main house without compromising or adding to the main plan. Ruark produced an ingenious, exquisite design, down to the last detail, and oversaw the construction, which entailed considerable challenges. The result is a stunning master bathroom that blends seamlessly into the unique architecture and color tones of the house. Daniel Ruark's professionalism, honesty, and devotion to his work are exemplary. He is a a master artist of organic architecture. Aaron Green recognized this, and the work Ruark did for me confirms it.
Joseph Farrell Architecture

Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsFebruary 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.
DNM Architecture

Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsDecember 31, 2012
Some of the many things I appreciate about David Marlatt, my architect on a large and fairly complex home project: He is imaginative, personable, calm, prompt, works extremely well with contractors and vendors, delivers designs / changes promptly. Not only an excellent sense of design architecturally, but also for interiors, fixtures, etc. Thorough practical knowledge base and expertise in dealing with the multitude of City / regulatory issues. Everything - design, budgets, timing, etc - is thought through carefully, and from many angles. Thoroughly receptive to client preferences, but will also be directive when needed. As his client, I'm am never in doubt that my interests are his highest priority. Plans and designs are created, stored and presented electronically - in 3D renderings as well as floor plans. Easy for those of us who are 3D-challenged to follow. In my view, outstanding in all areas. I can confidently recommend David without reservation.
PatriARCH Architecture

Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsDecember 6, 2013
My husband and I were in search of the perfect house that had to satisfy both our needs. The only thing we seemed to agree on was that the location had to be in Marin County. After almost 7 long years of renting, we finally found the perfect location on a street we were both in love with but unfortunately the house was far from what either one of us liked as it was way too small for our family of four and the one bathroom was the size of a phone booth! We then searched for an architect that would be able to give us both what we wanted and could see our vision and blend it together. After interviewing several different architects and feeling like they didn’t “get us” we moved on and were fortunate enough to have met Eric who was a referral from our real estate agent. He listened and really understood the look and feel each one of us wanted. When we saw the plans he designed for us, we were beyond delighted! He took our 1400 square foot home and turned it into a 3500 sqft. dream home that has everything we both had always wanted in the most creative and family friendly way. He put a lot of thought and care into our house and we couldn’t be happier with his brilliance, creativity, work ethic, honesty, and dedication.

Gregory Dedona Architect
Architects, Firms & Building Designers in Novato
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsJuly 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.
