Featured Reviews for Piedmont, CA Architects and Building Designers

John Barton Architect
Piedmont, CA Architects and Building Designers
August 6, 2014
“We recommend John without reservation. He was the architect for our remodel several years ago. Many remodels feel very tacked-on. Every one of his remodeling projects felt very organic--they felt like the house was meant to be that way. He not only achieved that with ours but also solved some tough drainage problems on our lot. Years after the project was completed, we still marvel at how well the house works and how well it has handled our changing needs. He is also very professional. He set our expectations regarding cost and timing and met those expectations. Finally he provided great references to a contractor and a designer. We were so impressed, we just hired him again to work on our vacation house.”
Well Made
Piedmont, CA Architects and Building Designers
September 16, 2019
“Kirill & WellMade were a pleasure to do business and work with. Kirill had great ideas and insights, was very flexible and interested in hearing our ideas and desires and implementing the same. He's a great guy and I recommend him unequivocally! We hired him to create as-builts, design a completely renovated 950 sf basement with bathroom and full service wet bar, a multi-level backyard with bocce ball court, fire pit, bar and deck (which we completed in 2017) and now we're in the middle of a major great room remodel with his help.”
Dotter & Solfjeld Architecture + Design
Piedmont, CA Architects and Building Designers
November 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.”
Jennifer Tulley Architects
Piedmont, CA Architects and Building Designers
May 5, 2016
“Jennifer is a talented architect with an eye for good design and good sense. She can immediately see how a space could be improved, and has a great sense for how a family will use each room, nook and cranny. She blends the two perspectives to create functional, lovely rooms that we enjoy daily. We have worked with Jennifer on several homes and she has designed floor plans that maximize challenging layouts, and fit every request and need we asked for. Her design aesthetic brought a cleaner, more modern influence to our traditional homes, all while respecting and highlighting the period details we chose to keep. During the construction process Jennifer is a strong advocate for the owner, working to ensure that the choices of materials are reasonable in price, and yield solid aesthetic result. She is patient with first time construction and instructive. During both our remodels she was responsive to my questions, and made sure I understood my choices, and pros and cons of each option. She is very responsive by both phone and email, gets plan revisions done on a timely basis and is just a joy to work with. Meetings with her begin on time, keep moving along, and finish with results.”
Mahsa Vanaki Studio
Piedmont, CA Architects and Building Designers
December 14, 2018
“I am a licensed General Contractor and I got in contact with Mahsa through a mutual friend. We worked together on a loft remodel that took place over the course of a year and was done in three phases. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Mahsa. Her ideas and vision were excellent; she made herself available in a very timely fashion for any decisions/changes that had to be made and she was flexible when any alterations to the original plans became necessary. I would highly recommend Mahsa for her ability at her work as well as her easy going attitude.”
Lorin Hill, Architect
Piedmont, CA Architects and Building Designers
August 12, 2014
“We were terrified to finally remodel. Now we're halfway through the job, and I'm wondering how it could possibly be going so well? The answer: Lorin Hill, Architect, and his team. Ours is not a small job - we've excavated a basement; moved the kitchen, downstairs powder room, laundry room (which went from 1st to 2nd floor); and moved a lot of walls and reconfigured closets to dramatically improve our space. We didn't know where to bookend the project, and could see endless options for how to improve our home. We interviewed multiple architects - familiar names that had signs up on the best streets. It was immediately clear that Lorin was the architect for us - he took in the important character of the home (and setting/land, neighboring homes, and street), he saw how we could shape the project to make the most of our resources and opportunities, and his communication style was unmatched by larger and smaller specialty firms alike. He's insightful, funny, has decades of experience in his craft, and (this is where Lorin really hits it out of the park) his design eye is so excellent that he is saving us from hiring a host of other professionals to make our finished result truly sing. In some ways I'd love to keep Lorin Hill our little secret - I can count on only one hand the service providers that so exceed my expectations that their fees don't seem high enough for what they provide (note the design comment above, and he's smoothed enough husband/wife remodel debates - helping us each see logic - that we'll happily enjoy our home for years to come, marriage intact). If you're lucky enough to find Lorin Hill with a space in his schedule that fits your project, grab it. If we ever win the lottery and have unlimited funds, we'll be back to take up all the rest of Lorin's time.”
ODS Architecture
Piedmont, CA Architects and Building Designers
August 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.”
Koch Architects - Joanne Koch
Piedmont, CA Architects and Building Designers
January 29, 2014
“I just completed a complete remodel of my San Francisco Edwardian flat and build out my basement. Joanne and her staff did a fantastic job. It started out as a kitchen bath remodel, but once the design process started expanded to include every room as we discussed how different spaces would be used and what I didn't like about the current space after living with it for 20yrs. Might as well do it right! Joanne's attention to detail, listening, and high ethical standards are unmatched. She would listen in the meetings and ask questions then come back with some ideas and sketches to get my reaction. She knew what I wanted without me even knowing it. She was also sensitive to the project budget which was important. I was able to complete the project within my budget. She was also key to working with the general contractor. She brought with her experience in projects of my scope / scale and working with different contractors and even her own remodel. This helped immensely. I look forward to the opportunity to work with Koch Architects again.”
Rebecca Schnier Architecture
Piedmont, CA Architects and Building Designers
July 22, 2015
“I highly recommend Rebecca Schnier Architecture. Rebecca has done several projects for us, including a 1000sf upper level addition, kitchen and bathroom remodels. The first project was in 2001 and the last one in 2012. She does beautiful design work that is very functional. She asks questions to be sure she understands her clients needs and taste. She offers design options and always has her clients best interests in mind. She is very creative and resourceful in her use of space. She is a pleasure to work with and delivers beautiful results.”
Wm. F. Holland/Architect
Piedmont, CA Architects and Building Designers
March 23, 2012
“We spent two years with Bill Holland, the first conceptualizing ideas for a major remodel of our 1916 Craftsman style house, the second in construction. We loved working with Bill and today appreciate his talents as we enjoy living in our evolved home. Bill is a gifted architect – able to visualize the design and construction of a three dimensional space in his mind’s eye, and then communicate his vision to clients in an understandable way. We wanted more openness and access from the rear of our house to our back yard. The result is stunning – truly an indoor/outdoor living space. Upon the completion of our project, Bill and we were honored to win an award from the City of Piedmont for the Best Outdoor Living Area in 2011. ”
