Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Sebastopol, CA
Amy A. Alper, Architect
Architects and Building Designers in Sebastopol, CA
"Amy was great to work with- she came up with great ideas while letting us be picky about the stuff we had strong opinions on. It was a collaborative process, but she made sure we didn't go in a direction that wouldn't have made sense architecturally or practically. We love the house/addition she designed and wouldn't change a thing."

Zeitgeist Sonoma
Architects and Building Designers in Sebastopol, CA
"The thought of remodeling our kitchen was very overwhelming. I had some basic ideas of things I wanted changed, but had no idea of where to begin. Jessica listened to my wish list and used her professional, creative style and came up with a classic plan that we are enjoying more that we could imagine. Jessica was such a delightful person to work with !!!"

Tierney Conner Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Sebastopol, CA
"We completed a major project with Tierney Conner and renovated half our home in the Oakland Hills. Let me just say...AMAZING! The project resulted in an outstanding design that really captured our tastes and lifestyle beyond what we could have imagined. They solved our most challenging problems, provided perfect function and increased the value of our home by 65% when appraised by our real estate agent. They are talented, practical and creative experts who ensured the vision came to life. Their diligent focus and continual involvement with the contractors ensured all details and plans were executed properly. They brought in light where you never expected, created indoor/outdoor living, choose the yummiest finishes, and offered true wow moments. And we so appreciated their advice on where to spend and where to save for the best value and impact. What I most appreciated about Tierney Conner is they blend architecture, design and landscape all in one giving me an easy integrated solution. TC is a true pleasure to work with at every level!"

ODS Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Sebastopol, CA
"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."

Mark English Architects, AIA
Architects and Building Designers in Sebastopol, CA
"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.."

450 Architects, Inc.
Architects and Building Designers in Sebastopol, CA
"We hired 450 Architects for an extensive renovation and addition, and have been thrilled with every aspect of working with them. David has designed an outstanding home for us that embodies what we wanted and how we live. Furthermore, every time we have a new idea for something we could do in our home, from holding a workshop or offering a space for a new venture, to hosting a children's playgroup, we find that the space can accommodate these new ideas seamlessly and beautifully. We are also very happy and excited about the relationship of our new house to the outside yard space and the city. 450 also has extensive experience with green building practices, and has done LEED certified projects for schools and other buildings. They are helping us design a Passive House certified home with high levels of insulation and a heat recovery ventilation system to ensure fresh clean air while conserving energy, as well as meeting several other goals such as Net Zero energy consumption. They have also supported us in investigating technologies such as composting toilets for our home, and specifying a greywater system for irrigation. Finally, 450 has worked with our structural engineers to specify additional measures that add only a small premium to construction cost but strengthen the home considerably to reduce possible earthquake damage. Overall, our experience is that 450 is willing to push the envelope of building design and construction, and they are fearless in exploring new technologies. Most importantly, they are wonderful, warm, and highly professional people to work with."

How do I find the best Sebastopol 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 California 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 Sebastopol 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 Sebastopol, CA 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 Sebastopol, CA 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 Sebastopol 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?
