Featured Reviews for San Lorenzo, CA Architects and Building Designers

Rebecca Schnier Architecture
San Lorenzo, 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.
Levitch Associates, Inc
San Lorenzo, CA Architects and Building Designers
April 23, 2013
Maurice Levitch of Levitch Associates was a pleasure and delight to work with. We appreciated his thoughtful guidance, attention to detail, superb craftsmanship, and his sense of humor. Maurice was supported by a great team of courteous, hardworking professionals, both in the office, and on site. He completed a total transformation of the facade of our house, for which we have received numerous compliments. We highly recommend him to any of those seeking a trustworthy, skilled and professional architect, and will certainly choose him for any future work on our house.
Saikley Architects
San Lorenzo, 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.
Robert Nebolon Architects
San Lorenzo, CA Architects and Building Designers
January 17, 2013
Robert Nebolon and his work (a Berkeley kitchen remodel) was featured in a design magazine while I was in the early discussion phase for a custom kitchen remodel (and more) with another architect. I couldn't seem to communicate the fact that I wanted a contemporary yet timeless design that honored the style of the house until I saw how beautifully Robert had transformed the Berkeley kitchen. Additionally, I wanted a large custom window and each of my architect's drafts left me uninspired. I spoke with Robert, he came to the site and understood exactly the aesthetic I was pursuing- and it was fully demonstrated in his first drawing. The added bonus was that he combined form and function- his use of space and built ins was perfect- he thought of so many things that I hadn't even considered. The remodel was featured in several different issues of Sunset Magazine as well as American Homestyle and Gardening. 18 years later people still enter the house and kitchen for the first time and exclaim how much they like it, and, I'm still 100% pleased with it. The remodel was extensive, he added four feet to the front of my house, allowing a much needed bathroom remodel on the lower floor and a vanity area and walk in closet as well. Two years ago Robert enlarged a second bedroom adding a great bathroom and effectively producing two master suites. He's a man of integrity and a pleasure to work with. I highly endorse him without reservation.
Jennifer Tulley Architects
San Lorenzo, 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
San Lorenzo, 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.
Strianese + Pew
San Lorenzo, CA Architects and Building Designers
May 31, 2013
Elizabeth Strianese Interiors specified ModCraft's RoundHouse Tile (originally made specifically for this project) for the luxury suites baths on The Roundhouse at Beacon Falls, in Beacon NY Liz was instrumental is specifying furnishings and finishes as well as coordinating the many detailed construction aspects of the entire project. While developing fluid relationships with all various contractors and vendors, she was able to create a vision with the owners of the Roundhouse and bring it to full realization. The Roundhouse at Beacon Falls is a highlight of a visit to New York's Hudson Valley. It was a pleasure to work with Liz on this project as well as many wonderful subsequent projects. ModCraft cherishes our connection with Elizabeth Strianese Interiors
Mikiten Architecture
San Lorenzo, 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.
Koch Architects - Joanne Koch
San Lorenzo, 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.
ODS Architecture
San Lorenzo, 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.
