Featured Reviews for Orinda, CA Architects and Building Designers

Saikley Architects
Orinda, CA Architects and Building Designers
May 20, 2015
“We worked with Alexandra for a rebuild of our home, upgrading it from a 3bd/1.5 bath to a 4bd/3.5bath while adding a second floor and changing the layout of the house dramatically. We chose Alexandra based on two critical expectations: that she would be good to work with (after all, you spend countless hours with your architect on a very expensive project), and that she would share our philosophy regarding the importance of combining form and function in house design. We were very lucky to have chosen her. Alexandra indeed spent countless hours with us. She paid careful attention to our wishes and needs. She worked patiently through every detail of the house, helping us maximize not only our living space but also important functional aspects of the house. From beautifully located and proportioned stairs to storage for kids backpacks under an entryway bench and built-in cabinets to roof segments and their slopes, everything was thoughtful, detailed, and practical. Alexandra also showed great professional and personal skill in navigating the permitting process, developing a good relationship with the city’s planning department that allowed us to enjoy all the benefits of the zoning code. She was always ready to help and mediate successfully when issues inevitably came up with our contractor. She followed through with everything she said she would in an even, friendly, and professional manner. We are delighted with our home and, truth be told, also take joy in the many compliments we get from anybody who visits our home or even passes by it. Alexandra was wonderful and we can’t recommend her highly enough.”
MKB Design & Management
Orinda, CA Architects and Building Designers
Apr 6, 2014
“We are preparing to update an 80's galley kitchen. I contacted MKB Design based on a colleague's recommendation and after viewing their posted designs. I let them know that we were not going to move on a project immediately, but that we needed to have a realistic plan in place so that we would know what to save for. Melissa and her associate Sarah, have been extremely professional in their approach and kept things real as we discussed the goals and associated costs. After coming up with several designs, we picked a hybrid plan that we like. From there MKB presented us with three options, (a) we gather the necessary information on appliances, lights, flooring, counter tops, etc., (b) they work with us at the various vendors; or, (c) they do most of this leg work. We accumulated most the information to the point where the design took on a more finished look and with a tighter budget estimate. Likewise, when the time comes for actually moving forward, MKB will be as involved in oversight as we chose. Frankly, when it gets to that point I have confidence that we can rely on MKB to look out after our best interests. In summary, working with MKB has been easy. They are as attentive as you want them to be, but still prodded us when necessary. We really like the plan and look forward completing this kitchen.”
Guy Lubroth, Architect
Orinda, CA Architects and Building Designers
Dec 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

Aug 25, 2012
“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.”

“We are currently working with Kenny on a remodel of the front half of our home, consisting of a kitchen, great room, dining room and an office. He is a pleasure to work with, is extremely thorough and has great and innovative ideas. He listens to your wants and needs, delivers a great work product and he makes the design process fun. We would recommend him without any reservations!!!!”
Mark Molinar
Orinda, CA Architects and Building Designers
May 4, 2016
“We worked with Mark to design our new home. He spent the time with us to understand what we wanted. He incorporated our needs and requirements into various plan options and provided us with information on costs, pros and cons, etc. We had a very complicated project - Mark took the initiative to lead us through the planning a design process, acting at times as a project manager and presenting the plan to the city, other engineers and representing us when needed. He was very easy to work with and very professional. Building a custom home has significant challenges - Mark's help was instrumental in getting the project completed on time.”
Rexford Design
Orinda, CA Architects and Building Designers
Feb 11, 2016
“I hired Jeff to develop plans for me on a house I was flipping in west Oakland. He is the best designer/Builder I have worked with. Jeff drew the plans and made everything ready for me to bring to the city for permits, Oakland gave me no problems and accepted his plans with no review saving me time and money. His expertise with design software not only makes for a better finished product, but also moves the process along very quickly. He brought me through the design process with him on (Go to meeting). Where I was able to give feedback and make some input right from my own iPad, pretty cool process. I highly recommend Rexford Design and will be using his services on my next project!”
John Newton-Design
Orinda, CA Architects and Building Designers
Oct 5, 2015
“John helped plan and did drawings for a small residential renovation. His plans meshed well with seismic design undertaken at the same time. He was helpful in space planning, and drew several alternatives. He shared electronic files (not all architects are willing to do this), which was super helpful.”
Barry & Wynn Architects, Inc.
Orinda, CA Architects and Building Designers
Mar 21, 2016
“Barry and Wynn are talented, visionary architects who create beautiful works that both blend with the surroundings but also stand on their own in terms of individual character and timeless beauty. They have completed two commercial projects for me, one having one the prestigious Gold Nugget Award.”
SDG Architects
Orinda, CA Architects and Building Designers
Aug 3, 2015
“Jeff Potts at SDG designed us an incredible, award winning guest house! What I particularly like about Jeff is his open and approachable style. We've worked with many architects over the years and many simply don't want to listen to the client. Jeff listens and then delivers a design beyond your expectations. I would highly recommend working with them.”
