I would highly recommend Martha for any remodel/design projects, large or small. She's fun and very easy to work with. She takes the time to listen, gets to know your personal tastes, likes & dislikes, and presents many great options. We love our new home and get fabulous comments and reviews from everyone who sees it. You'll love Martha and her ideas.
Jerome DeMarco ART.chitecture
Portland, OR Architects and Building Designers
November 16, 2013
My wife and I had planned to build a new home for several years and sought out Jerry DeMarco as a designer. Jerry showed us examples of his work, including a style that we really liked. We were at first concerned about the distance between us, Jerry being located in Oregon and my wife and I located in Northern California, but that concern turned out to be a non-issue. Nearly all of our communication was done via telephone and by emailing plans and specifications between us and his studio. Most evenings during the design process my wife and I would review new design ideas and or changes to previous drawings Jerry sent to us via email. We would then write comments and call Jerry to discuss them and new design ideas he wanted us to consider. Very soon after our on-line and telephone meetings, we would have new drawings via email to review. Jerry visited our site a couple of times to get a feel for it, but the rest of the process was accomplished via those two modes. We had some pretty specific ideas about our floor plan and the exterior look of the new home. Jerry helped us through the design and build process. When the plans were finished, Jerry emailed them to a local print shop who printed them for building permits and construction drawings. He also worked with our contractor with design questions during the construction phase. My wife and I had a great time working with Jerry to create the beautiful design and building our new home. Any new custom home design for us will definitely have Jerry's name in the margin.

Pat did a fantastic job of designing a bump-out for my basement remodel to accommodate the new stairs I had to put in to meet code (very old house). I could not visualize what was going to be done to that part of my home and overall remodel until she walked me through the design, and then ---boom, it hit me! Light, windows, beautiful space utilization and best of all ---it looks like it has always been a part of the house ---does not look like a add-on at all. She was wonderful to work with, listened to what I wanted, and then provided a design to exceed what I thought I could have. She provided great drawings for the contractor and was just really good to work with. I have recommended her to many people and just can't say enough good things about her work and abilities!

Richard and his staff were a pleasure to deal with. He was able, after some mild beatings, to assimilate our ideas and add his own to create a very useful amalgam. We still enjoy his input and appreciation of space. Our error was failing to hire him to supervise construction, in addition to designing the building.

I have had the pleasure of working with Erich on several projects throughout the years. On building projects, hundreds of problems will arise and how they are dealt with determines the true professionalism of an architect. Erich has never missed a beat on solving the problems with me on custom door and window orders and has come up with very creative solutions. It would simplify Erich's skills to just say he is detail oriented, he goes far beyond just details. He looks at the job as a whole and somehow manages to break every component down into sub assemblies and how they interact with each other. Not just how it's to be designed and built, but does the item work aesthetically in the overall design. Simply put, he is a pro, an absolute pro. I have always enjoyed working with him and look forward to working on the next project with Erich. Shawn Shallenberger Northwest Door and Sash
Giulietti Schouten Architects

November 5, 2012
We're really enjoying working with the Giulietti/Schouten team designing our new beach home. When we were searching for an architect, we looked at portfolios from many firms and were struck by the breadth and creativity of their work. The combination of artistry, creativity, flexibility, practicality, and attention to detail they bring to their work is really impressive, and has resulted in a design much better than we envisioned. It's particularly impressive when the complicated site and extreme environment of our oceanfront setting are taken into account. We're very happy with the project and feel fortunate to have found this great group of people to work with! Follow-on now that the project is finished: Our home turned out beautifully. They were extremely helpful during the construction phase, helping us with the multitude of decisions and working with our builder to assure every detail was as it was envisioned. We were really lucky to have their team to work with! We give them our highest recommendation.

If you’re looking for a very personable and enjoyable design process for your next home, look no further. After moving from out of state, we had purchased a view lot in a newly developed gated community and driving through one weekend, we stopped and talked to a neighbor who was working in their yard about their beautiful home and they recommended that we call the designer and gave us the number to Summit Ridge. We had talked to two others designers beforehand but after meeting with all three, there was no question who we wanted to work with and we couldn't be happier. The design of our home not only fits our new northwest lifestyle but its entire design was created around us. Each room was carefully planned out and is a reflection of our lifestyle. Highly recommended.

We recently completed our dream/retirement home in Central Oregon. While it was not our first new house, it was our first custom home. We were basically at the end of the design process when I realized what we had was simply not matching what we had envisioned. I had communicated poorly. We hired Rick to help us tweak the project and he did that and more. Essentially, he delivered the look and feel we sought, beginning with a beautiful pencil drawing of what he thought we wanted - it is framed and hangs in our house today. He listened - and was the consummate professional. We couldn't be more thrilled with what his work produced.
