Featured Reviews for San Francisco, CA Architects and Building Designers

Architect Andrew Morrall
San Francisco, CA Architects and Building Designers
November 9, 2011
We transformed our kitchen and put a major 3 story addition with a roof deck at the back of our Victorian House in the Haight. Andy was the Architect and was able to take a very challenging existing kitchen with a narrow floor plan, with many jogs and angles and create a very cohesive design. The inherent narrowness and angles of the space were turned around and actually made design features of the space. With very little wall changes, Andy was able to redesign the Kitchen Cabinets and reconfigure the sink and appliances to create an entirely new look. The lighting, soffits and cabinet details were all well thought out and blend seamlessly with the existing house. The major 3 story addition also proved challenging. Andy's thorough knowledge of the San Francisco Planning Code allowed us to attain a rear yard variance. The addition was very well detailed, extensive waterproofing details were included for the exterior flashing and for the roof deck. We were able to achieve all our goals, and then some with Andy as our Architect. We highly recommend him.
Robert Stiles Architecture
San Francisco, CA Architects and Building Designers
October 24, 2013
We have worked with Rob for several years now on a few projects and he always does an amazing job. In addition to being an extremely talented architect, he is very easy to work with. We completely gutted our kitchen and Rob oversaw the entire project while we were away. I had assumed that we would need to hire a kitchen designer along with an architect, but Rob was able to design a beautiful and also incredibly functional kitchen. Having lived with our new kitchen for over 2 years now, there isn't a single thing I would change. He has a great aesthetic and was also extremely helpful in picking out hardware, lighting, and appliances. We have also had him work on the outside of our house and he is currently working on several bedrooms, bathrooms and an office. Rob is very efficient and detail oriented - his drawings are very thorough which always helps make the projects go smoothly.
Mark Davis Design
San Francisco, CA Architects and Building Designers
November 25, 2015
I would highly recommend Mark Davis Design having worked with Mark for over a year on the comprehensive redesign and enlargement of an 1875 house in San Francisco. Architecturally Mark's design was sympathetic to the original historic structure, whilst at the same time being thoroughly modern, rational and considerate of the construction process. Pulling a permit in San Francisco can be a long and frustrating experience, in fact it's probably the most difficult city to deal with in the United States. Thanks to Mark's (and the structural engineer's) efforts we got the project through the labyrinthine process as originally designed and in under a year, which is a great result for a lateral and horizontal addition to a historic structure in SF. Mark was easy to work with at all stages of the process and always produced work and responded to city questions/issues more than promptly. I'd definitely use the firm again.
EASA Architecture
San Francisco, CA Architects and Building Designers
November 20, 2012
Several years ago, we hired Ellis Schoichett of EASA Architecture to draw up plans for a whole house remodel of our smaller, older home. Best decision ever! Twelve years later, and I still get a thrill walking through the front door. He turned our house into a home and the home he created for us, has given us years of pleasure. I recommend him highly.

We at Morgan-Keefe have been very fortunate to work specifically with Tom Kligerman of IKB in building two wonderful homes for clients in the South Carolina area. Tom's attention to detail and the creativeness to the end has made both projects a great success. This firm is internationally recognized and we look forward to another project in the future!

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.

I am currently working with Mark on a remodel. I found him on Houzz as I liked some of his projects and was not disappointed. Mark listens extremely well, understands what I want and than makes it better. He has a great sense of space, light and general flow. I also like his pragmatic approach - he knows where things make a difference and an investment is needed, and where one can get away with potential cheaper approaches.. He is also just a really nice and inspiring person to work with..

Mikiten Architecture
San Francisco, CA Architects and Building Designers
August 30, 2014
We hired Erick Mikiten as the project architect for a major kitchen remodel and some ancillary work on the entrance porches to the house in 1994/95. We wanted to expand the kitchen, remodel the interior to include new cabinets and an island, provide a new seating area in an addition at the rear of the house, and improve what was then an awkward connection between the kitchen and a rear bedroom. Erick came up with a very creative solution to the space constraints in the existing kitchen that resulted in a much more spacious kitchen with a larger island than we had anticipated. The addition on the rear of the house not only provided a seating area with views into the rear garden that we use on a daily basis, but included a very attractive raised ceiling and exterior architecture that continue to receive admiring comments from friends and visitors almost 20 years later. Erick's firm also recommended a new color scheme for the exterior of the house, which we adopted. Even now, from time to time complete strangers stop by to ask about the specifications of the paint colors because they find it so attractive and are considering doing something similar. Throughout the project Erick made great efforts to understand what we were looking for and present alternative options to achieve this, going through multiple iterations of the design as we refined the concept together, then producing a final design that satisfied our budget constraints. During construction, Erick visited the site on a regular basis and worked closely with the contractor to make sure that the work was being done in conformance with the design.
Michael Tauber Architecture
San Francisco, CA Architects and Building Designers
February 23, 2011
Michael Tauber did an excellent job of designing an addition for our Spanish style house in Albany, CA. Michael proved to be very innovative in coming up with a design that complemented the Spanish style, but also satisfied our needs for a more modern interior. One of our major needs was to be able to provide space for our large collection of books. Michael's design admirably provided such space, while making the library space very interesting. We highly recommend Michael Tauber.
