Featured Reviews for Architects, Architecture Firms, & Building Designers in Oakland

Dotter & Solfjeld Architecture + Design
Architects, Architecture Firms, & Building Designers in Oakland
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsNovember 1, 2012
We worked with Dotter & Solfjeld most recently to design an Italian villa on a hillside in Saratoga, CA. This was actually our third project together as they worked on an expansion and remodel of our previous house in Palo Alto as well. As soon as we bought the lot in Saratoga Russ and Wencke, of D&S, began studying the landscape, spending significant time at different points in the day to intimately understand the light, the views and the flow of the hillside. Russ and Wencke are experts at both exterior and interior architecture and design, and they are an amazing team! Once they felt they knew the property, they spent time with us to understand what we liked and disliked and then began designing our house based largely on Italian building principles of thick walls and simple, yet elegant, construction. D&S involved us in every step of the process and ensured we were completely comfortable with each phase of the design before moving forward. They totally went above and beyond the call of duty by diligently working with our planning department and even one neighbor. They were our advocates with the City and were clearly extremely well respected by everybody they interfaced with. During the building process, D&S worked closely with our contractor and foreman to ensure that the project ran smoothly and stayed on budget. Often times, there is tension between architects and contractors, but our contractor loved working with D&S. Some of our friends have also used D&S to design ultra modern homes...D&S is super versatile and we unequivocally and enthusiastically recommend them.

Eugene Sakai stood out far above the pack of the 5 Architectural firms that we investigated to do our total house construction. He was simply the best to deal with, very professional, on time, and took a personal interest in the project, and within budget. We moved in 2 years ago and still love him and the contractor, C.W. Wright in San Carlos. We are pleased to show the house through Eugene Sakai at any time.
3 Lights Design

Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsMarch 7, 2016
I love working with 3 Lights Design! Everyone there is professional, knowledgeable, efficient, and super friendly. TANGERINEdesign is a Residential Design firm focusing on space planning and room layouts for remodels and additions for all kinds of homeowners. Since I'm a 1-woman show, working with over 90 homeowners a year, I don't have the time to deal with Permit process, and 3 Lights Design gives me the ability to serve my clients from Design to Construction. My clients appreciate the attention to detail in order to streamline the process, while keeping a budget in mind.
Klopf Architecture
Architects, Architecture Firms, & Building Designers in Oakland
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsFebruary 23, 2014
My HOA hired Klopf Architecture to design new fences, front gates, lighting and paint color plans for our condominiums. They were designed in 1963 by Quincy and Jones and built in 1964 by Eichler Homes. Replacements in the 1990s did not serve the mid-century aesthetic well -- but owners did not want to return to the light-inhibiting original thin-line panel fences and gates. The Klopf team produced three outstanding options. The one we selected includes brilliant design features like frosted glass doors with 1/4-in spaces between fence boards to allow light in along with clear glass doors for the pool area with 1/2-in spaces between boards surrounding it. The overall design and color plan is clean and elegant. John Klopf and his team could not have been more friendly and flexible throughout. We look forward to implementing this design over the next few years.
Levitch Associates, Inc

Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsApril 23, 2013
Maurice Levitch of Levitch Associates was a pleasure and delight to work with. We appreciated his thoughtful guidance, attention to detail, superb craftsmanship, and his sense of humor. Maurice was supported by a great team of courteous, hardworking professionals, both in the office, and on site. He completed a total transformation of the facade of our house, for which we have received numerous compliments. We highly recommend him to any of those seeking a trustworthy, skilled and professional architect, and will certainly choose him for any future work on our house.

Guy Lubroth, Architect
Architects, Architecture Firms, & Building Designers in Oakland
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsDecember 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
ODS Architecture

The staff at Ohashi Design Studio helped me design my kitchen/living space. I wanted to open up our galley kitchen to be able to see our incredible view from the kitchen. They came up with a design I never imagined could work so well. Rather than just remove a wall, they moved the kitchen, changed it to a more functional shape and not only opened up the view, but made the living space feel like we were outside. I have been especially impressed with their level of service. They listened to my dreams and goals and turned it into a reality beyond what I'd hoped for. They were available anytime I needed guidance during construction and made sure the project was built down to the finest details. They helped me find a contractor and oversaw the bidding process. They helped pick out all the materials and finishes, even the paint color. I can't say enough about their level of expertise and professionalism. I worked with Dave and Alan.
Design Draw Build
Architects, Architecture Firms, & Building Designers in Oakland
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsNovember 7, 2016
The Design Draw Build team, headed by Tyler Kobick, gave me the confidence to move forward with my SF-based kitchen/bathroom remodel. Not only have they been creative & transparent from day 1 around design, trade-offs and pricing, but their communication throughout the process has been extraordinary. If you're searching for a partner to guide you through the process, one that is innovative, cost effective, and works on your behalf as a fiduciary, look no further than Design Draw Build!

Tyreus Design Studio

Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsJune 4, 2015
Christie was our architect for a very transformative remodel of our entire house. From a very dated 1970's styled house, that was built originally in the 1920's. She was everything we needed in an architect. Creative, responsive, and very professional. We would highly recommend her services.
