Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Scotch Plains, NJ
Kevin Mason, Architect
Architects and Building Designers in Scotch Plains, NJ
"TWICE we have used Kevin Mason for renovation projects and TWICE we could not have been happier. We live in a historic district and have a 100 year old home which had been modified in the 50's. We needed to replace rotting windows in the front and wanted the house to have a more historically correct and appealing appearance. We had an idea what we wanted to see but it was Kevin who was able to expand on our ideas and his guidance even through detail choices such as colors, resulted in a project which exceeded our expectations. Therefore when hurricane Sandy damaged our detached garage there was no question that we would utilize Kevin's services again. Once again we were thrilled with the results. Once a non-descript garage, now a carriage house styled garage perfectly suited to the restyled house bringing the whole property together. Kevin is an absolute pleasure to work with. His creativity, imagination, and his ability to understand and expand upon his clients visions is reflected in the outstanding results achieved. We would work with Kevin again without a second though and would highly recommend Kevin to anyone who wants to work with an experienced and talented architect."

Gary Rosard Architect
Architects and Building Designers in Scotch Plains, NJ
"Gary helped us renovate the exterior of our home last year and we were thrilled with the results. Our house needed a serious makeover and Gary was able to completely transform and modernize our home while staying within our agreed upon budget. Not only does Gary have an amazing design sensibility, but he is also a pleasure to work with. He delivered plans on time, worked well with contractors and followed through. I highly recommend him!"

Stonewater Architecture & Interior Design
Architects and Building Designers in Scotch Plains, NJ
"I've know Mike for several years now and I have seen his work and commitment to his craft and clients first hand. Actually, first hand should be changed to hands-on!! He is very gifted as a architect, methodical and detailed through his designing process, What I love about Mike most is his commitment to his craft, projects and clients. Meaning, he wants to stay connected from concept to completion and make sure every detail of his designs are met during the building process. He loves both ends of the business, designing and seeing the design unfold for his clients. I would highly recommend that you speak with Mike when planning a project and you will find my review to be quite accurate."

Douglas VanderHorn Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Scotch Plains, NJ
"When my husband and I took on the project of completely renovating an 1846 Greek Revival house in the back country of Greenwich, we ran into difficulties with the architect we had hired. Doug VanderHorn came to our rescue! Many architects might have been unwilling to take on a project that had already started, but Doug, to my everlasting gratitude, not only agreed to work with us, but brought fresh, new, creative and improved ideas to the table. His taste is impeccable and he ended up helping me with all kinds of related issue like bathroom tiles, special effects in moldings and fireplaces and placement of furniture in a difficult room. He is easy to work with and very realistic in his suggestions. I could not recommend him more highly! -Mrs. Russell S. Reynolds, Jr."

Clawson Architects, LLC
Architects and Building Designers in Scotch Plains, NJ
"Very pleased with work from Clawson Architects - Rene, Marvin and their team. Over a number of years they have supported 2 projects at our house - new bathroom, new kitchen and other changes that made the house meet our needs. In the last job, we had ambitious plans, they listened to why we wanted to do it and suggested a smarter, much lower cost approach that gave us exactly what we needed. One innovative idea that no one had suggested in 10 years of our living there until they and it saved me quite a lot of money. Their work is thorough and top notch."

R.J. Wood Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Scotch Plains, NJ
"Robie is terrific. We interviewed quite a few architects for this job. Many had great ideas and beautiful plans though they were double our budget. Robie stuck to the budget and came up with lots of great ideas. He was very flexible and creative. We'd use him again in a heartbeat!!!! We love the result and the pictures posted don't do it justice!"

Archetype Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Scotch Plains, NJ
"Archetype did an amazing job for me as architects for the gut renovation of a 8,000 sf townhouse. They created a great plan, paid attention to every detail, were highly responsive in making modifications, went over and beyond the call of duty to get drawings done with a very tight deadline, and were a pleasure to work with. Navigating the permitting process in NYC is complex and arbitrary, but working with Archetype made it quite painless. I look forward to having the opportunity to work with them again in the near future and would highly recommend them."

How do I find the best Scotch Plains architect for my home design project?


It is best to hire a home architect who will be involved in all phases of the design process, from the initial concept to the completed construction. The architect is often the first person you will hire for your project. If necessary, they might also help you select and hire New Jersey subcontractors, which can include the builders, engineers and landscaper. Interior architects are also involved in negotiating contracts for all involved participants. It is for these reasons that it is extremely important for you to have a good relationship with the Scotch Plains residential architect you hire. He or she can be the tie-breaking vote between you and the general contractor and can be your biggest advocate during the construction process. Different architecture firms in Scotch Plains, NJ provide different services, so the scope of the work can span from pre-design environmental impact studies to selecting furniture and finishes, depending on what your specific needs are.

What sort of process can I expect from a residential architect?


As far as the process goes, the architecture firm or individual that you choose will start with concept drawings and finish with construction drawings and documents. Some firms even design with 3D renderings and videos, but that should not be assumed. There should be plenty of meetings between you and your building designer until you have agreed upon a design that you are completely happy with. Always keep in mind that the designer will have building codes to follow, and likely pre-existing design limitations when dealing with a remodel, so while they might not be able to execute your exact ideas they always have your safety and aesthetics in mind. One of the most important duties of a residential architect is to serve as managers and supervise most aspects of construction, as well as facilitate communication between all other contractors, so you can expect them to be present throughout the entire building process to ensure everything is executed as planned.

It is very important to hire the right professional for the job. Remember that the most well-known or established designer might not provide the best architectural services for your needs. It all comes down to the individual project. Research and ask people whose work you like for recommendations. It's important to have somewhat of an idea of the style of house architecture that you prefer, as well as the amount you would like to spend. Residential architects in Scotch Plains, NJ are natural problem solvers. They will assess the entire situation and help you to solve your problems too. Don't settle for a single company too early. Call and interview a few. Make sure that you feel like your personalities will mesh well and that you like their professional perspective.

Questions to ask prospective Scotch Plains interior architects:


  • What is your fee structure?
  • What does the cost include?
  • Do you have professional liability insurance?
  • Can you handle my special requests (ADA, LEED etc.)?
  • What types of renderings (3D, video, illustrative) will you produce?
  • What is your experience with similar projects?
  • When do you expect to start and be finished with the project?
  • What do your services include? (It's best that the services are until construction is completed.)
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Would you say your work has a defining style? (This is important in case the architect's personal style will interfere with your vision.)
  • Will you help with hiring a general contractor and subcontractors?
  • What do you estimate the cost will be?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any complications you foresee with this project?
