Featured Reviews for Novato, CA Architects and Building Designers

Gregory Dedona Architect
Novato, CA Architects and Building Designers
July 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.
Guy Lubroth, Architect
Novato, CA Architects and Building Designers
December 29, 2014
We engaged Architect Guy Lubroth to help us remodel our apartment in San Francisco. He was very professional and thorough in his review of what could be done architecturally. Guy was also very helpful in presenting several alternatives to us. Our remodel is now complete and it is as perfect as we could have wanted. Thanks to Guy's help the HOA approvals went thru easily and the entire experience was good. We can highly recommend Guy Lubroth to anyone considering building or remodeling. Sincerely, Noel Pinto

My husband and I have worked with Harris & Kasten since the late 1990s. They have done many projects for us, including our lovely home in Atherton. Our home is a combination of Italian and French design. Everything was done to a tee! We could not be more pleased with their knowledge of art, art history, history, architecture, etc. You cannot go wrong with them.

I worked with Keith for a remodel of a TV room and two bathrooms. I was very impressed with how creative he was. Keith was able to work with me on ideas and layouts and he always worked on keeping me on budget with the choices of finishes that I wanted. Once we had the plan it was a very quick turnaround to get drawings off to the contractor. I look forward to working on a kitchen remodel with him next!

Consistently refreshing creative architectural designs. William is a unique architect that understands deeply how to create highly functional buildings that are both efficient and gorgeous. Great work and extremely professional. Highly recommend.

Jonna Alexander Green assisted me with a recent renovation. Working with her was easy and fun. Her design respected both my personal style and my budget, which I greatly appreciated. I highly recommend her design services.
DNM Architecture

December 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.

Kurt planned and managed improvements to a condo (2004-2005) that I purchased in Oakland upon first moving to the Bay area. Several years later I happily hired him again to manage the renovation of my new husband's Stanford home (2008). This involved significant changes to a five-bedroom home, ranging from changing the footprint to adding clerestory windows and a new roof line to planning all new bathrooms, kitchen, seismic upgrades, etc. Essentially the house was gutted. Kurt was creative, thoughtful, and professional. Thanks to his work and a fine contractor, my husband and I continue to enjoy our home every day. And visitors, even those who have been here repeatedly, comment on the wonderful ambiance.
Wright Architecture

We lost our home in the Tubbs fire in October 2017. Heather has been such an incredible member of our re-build team. We would be lost without her. She has been such a wealth of knowledge, really dependable and a great team player. It's so nice to have such a strong resource on your side during an emotional rebuild. It's so critical for an architect to not only be knowledgeable about local building codes, but to also have a strong network of subs and referrals. We appreciate her work, partnership and friendship through this process. We can't recommend her highly enough.
