We cannot recommend Jeremy and his team enough. Our project was a full renovation of our 3 story townhouse, originally built in the mid-80's, and literally everything needed updating. My wife and I thought we had a pretty good idea of what we wanted to do and how we wanted our renovated house to look, so our original intent was to work closely with our contractor to make all the design decisions on our own. In hindsight, I'm so glad we did not go that route. It didn't take long for us to realize we were in over our heads - as the saying goes "you don't know what you don't know" and that was definitely the case here. If you want a well thought out design, taking both functionality and aesthetics into consideration while ensuring a consistent flow throughout the house, you need an expert. Fortunately for us, we found Jeremy. From our very first interaction we were impressed not just with Jeremy's knowledge and experience in design, but also the importance he placed on getting to know our tastes, priorities, and the outcome we wanted. Over the course of our project we never felt pressured to make a decision that we weren't comfortable with or that we felt didn't fit our needs. That said, Jeremy had many insights and suggestions that frankly we would not have thought of that significantly improved the final result. For example, a small tweak to our first floor design netted us noticeably more room in our kitchen, giving us more cabinet and counter space, as well as improving the flow of traffic. Jeremy is also quite knowledgeable and resourceful. Having him work closely with us in all our material selections - lighting, floors, fixtures, tile, paint, etc. made all the difference. What would have seemed overwhelming became a manageable and coordinated process. He knows which features, brands, qualities to look for. He can also tell you which decisions are important, and which not as much so. This helped us focus on important decisions and not sweat the small stuff. Lastly, Jeremy is a true design professional. He worked seamlessly with our contractors to make sure they understood and followed through with our designs. Detailed and highly professional plans, e.g., RCP, floor plans, elevations, renderings, etc. exceeded our expectations and were very much appreciated by ourselves as well as our contractor. It takes all the guesswork and ambiguity out of the execution, as should be the case. They're also extremely helpful when visiting showrooms - we were often asked how we created the plans or who made them for us. And, Jeremy was always accessible to provide feedback and suggestions 'on the fly', providing a quick sketch or rendering to help us make decisions in real-time. Bottom line, you can tell when someone has a real passion for what they do, and Jeremy has a passion for design. He is a pleasure to work with and he knows what he's doing - I would not hesitate for a moment to hire him for your project.

Dan was a great help to us in remodeling our kitchen. He was extremely professional and came up with some ideas we hadn't even thought of. He was thorough, timely and quick to answer any questions. We would work with Dan and his staff again.

I worked with Swatt Architects on several commercial projects in the nineties and have since kept abreast of their work. Bob Swatt has always assembled an energetic, creative and professional team to execute work which is classically beautiful, extremely responsive to each clients' needs, and truly respectful of the natural and built environment in and around each project. In every case I know of, the result has been places that people want to be in, places that stand the test of time and become cherished parts of their communities.

Baltis Architects were tremendous in their role as designers of our new custom single-family residence in Chicago, IL. Their design expertise around mid-century modern aesthetics and responsiveness to our ideas, preferences, and critiques were truly remarkable. As a full-service architectural firm, they provided guidance and expertise from the planning stages through the construction phase. They were integral in helping us both design and purchase furniture as well. Both Bo and Joanne were very easy to work with and we had open and effective communication throughout our entire project. Our home was truly that once in a lifetime dream house and it would not have been possible without their tireless efforts and thoughtful approach to every aspect of the design and building process. I could not recommend them more highly.

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.

My kitchen now looks beautiful and new again, I hired HomeTech to remodeled my kitchen counter tops and my faucet, they were very helpful and got the work done professionally and fast, they even replaced a piece of wood that the pipe with a leak got very wet and humid. The communication with them was very fast and convenient. I am a very curios person so I asked several questions and they were very open to answered them all. Very satisfied and happy with my new kitchen.

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.

I had the pleasure of collaborating with designer Kara Silkwood on a major residential remodel and addition located in Los Gatos, California. She was a tremendous asset to our design team as our small addition grew to a whole-house remodel and addition--approximately 3,000 sq. ft. single story home. Together, we transformed a simple ranch style home into a custom detailed, beautifully decorated craftsman style home inside and out. I would highly recommend Interior Designer, Kara for your project.

Before I begin my remodel plan, I was debating whether or not I should hire a professional architect, and I am glad I did. Kyle is extremely knowledgable and resourceful, he organize and oversee the whole project, as well as fill in every little detail that I probably will neglect. Not only he design a cost effective layout for us, tackle all the structural issues, he also help me deal with all the permit and legal hassle so that I can concentrate on shopping for my new sofa and coffee machine. Working with Kyle is such a pleasant experience, he is responsive, honest, and detail oriented. Having Kyle as my professional architect is the best decision I made throughout the entire project!!
