Guy Lubroth, Architect
Santa Venetia, CA Architects and Building Designers
December 29, 2014
We engaged Architect Guy Lubroth to help us remodel our apartment in San Francisco. He was very professional and thorough in his review of what could be done architecturally. Guy was also very helpful in presenting several alternatives to us. Our remodel is now complete and it is as perfect as we could have wanted. Thanks to Guy's help the HOA approvals went thru easily and the entire experience was good. We can highly recommend Guy Lubroth to anyone considering building or remodeling. Sincerely, Noel Pinto

I'm the fortunate and proud owner of two custom homes designed by Greg Dedona. One is in Mill Valley, Marin County (1999, remodel) and the other is in McCloud, Siskiyou County (2013, tear-down & full new construction). Greg's mastery of design, materials and construction processes created two stunning, unique, buildable and affordable homes. His ability to creatively merge our family's goals, an evolving joint vision for the houses and the highly different administrative processes of these two sharply contrasting counties was something I believe very few (if any?) other architects could achieve. From the most rural contractor resources in Siskiyou to the most experienced and high-end pros in Marin, Greg demonstrated an ability to forge loose and disparate bands of craftsmen into a cohesive team. His leadership was respected by everyone involved - strikingly unusual in the often friction-plagued relationships one sees between contractor and architect. Perhaps most creatively, our McCloud home made great use of owner-procured (i.e., salvaged!) locally sourced, recycled materials - 100 yr old wood floors, replaned structural doug fir for interior trim, refurbished Wedgewood kitchen stoves etc.. In sharp contrast to architects who often scorn such an approach, Greg was invaluable in his advice on how to make these materials work. He helped us source many of them through his amazing array of contacts not just in Marin, but from Tahoe to the Oregon border. Highest possible rating...were there a lifetime achievement award for residential architecture in California, Greg Dedona has already earned it.

Steve Swearengen is one of the best architects I know. As a business consultant I've worked with hundreds of architects over the years. Steve understands construction better than most and certainly works well with contractors and clients to get their dreams fulfilled. I highly recommend him to any contractor or homeowner who wants it a great job at a reasonable price.

Jonna Alexander Green assisted me with a recent renovation. Working with her was easy and fun. Her design respected both my personal style and my budget, which I greatly appreciated. I highly recommend her design services.

We worked with Urrutia Design on a complete home renovation. Jason and Martha listened to our ideas and translated them into their design aesthetic. Their cohesive design runs throughout the entire house and they incorporated our family's specific needs resulting in a more usable, beautiful space. We are thrilled with our new home!

Theresa consulted with my partner and I on a home remodel. She listened to our project vision and freely shared her professional knowledge, contractor network, she provided advice on lighting, spacial design, energy saving and green materials, furniture placement in the new site and drafted master house plans. We have lived in the same house for 16+ years, but only fell in love with it a few months ago, with the help of Theresa Tamley Architectural Design.

When we first interviewed Carl many years ago, we were impressed by his ability to problem solve with the client and create positive outcomes with problematic situations. That impression proved true in all our projects with Carl. Our first project involved turning a ranch style home into a two story home. The staircase was a bit tricky but Carl created a gorgeous staircase that really pulled the whole project together. Our second project was a rescue on Carl's part. We were planning major winterization and expansion of a summer home including all new kitchen and garage with apartment. Unfortunately, our relationship with the architect in that state deteriorated to an unacceptable level. After calling Carl for advice on dealing with this, we fired the other architect and hired Carl. He worked with the plans we had and immediately identified the problems and suggested the perfect solutions. He attended a Coastal Area Committee meeting to make sure the plans and project were accepted. Our third project was just this past year on the second home. It entailed creating a new master bath and walk-in closet by moving rooms and the addition of a screened porch. Once again, Carl listened to what we were trying to accomplish and came up with exactly what we wanted. Another aspect to Carl's work is that the builders we have used have been impressed with his plans.

Tim Clark is very creative, artistic and has a good knowledge of building, carpentry and also engineering. He gets work done on time and is responsive. He has designed two of my projects. The first was a major remodel of a house in San Rafael, CA. The entire living room was torn down and a new living room and a huge master bedroom was added above the living room. The kitchen was completely remodeled as well. The remodel occurred in 2004-2005. The next project was the replacement of a carport and deck of a beach house in Inverness, CA. This project was completed around 2011. The cost of the first was around $350,000 with the second being about $60,000, including the permit.

The principal architects, Kurt and Kristi, are not only extremely talented in architecture and design, but pay strict attention to what it is that the clients wish in their home or commercial project. So often architects are not adaptable but these folks are. They also make a genuine effort to stay within budget though that is so difficult to control with costs bouncing all over the place and clients changing their minds during construction. For character and ability, I whole heartedly recommend MWA.
