Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Somerset, NJ
Fortunato Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Somerset, NJ
"We could not have asked for a better architect!!!! Dan had the vision to create our dream home out of the existing footprint. I can go on about his design and vision, but Dan brought so much more to the project than just creating a pretty picture. We built our home in Hillsborough NJ where the town is strict with compliance and our builder was a nightmare!! Dan went above and beyond the call of duty. Without Dan in our corner we would have never gotten to the finish line!!!! We were and are very happy with Dan's work ethic, vision, project oversight, and all around professionalism/knowledge. Recommend???? I HIGHLY RECOMMEND and ENCOURAGE you to partner with Daniel Fortunato, Architect PA!!!! Top notch!!!!"

Douglas VanderHorn Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Somerset, 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."

Ben Herzog
Architects and Building Designers in Somerset, NJ
"I found Ben Herzog Architects while browsing I would add photos to my ideabook and discovered that most of the projects were done by Ben! Ben has been great helping us decide how we can maximize space in our 1917 Brooklyn row house. We have decided on a more open floor plan, new wood plank floors, high hat lighting, a bit larger kitchen space with higher ceiling and an island, a shallow broom closet and banquette seating in our dining room. The demolition began 9/5/12 and as a result we have discovered that we can open up the doorway openings even more than planned! Ben is happily revising his drawings and I can't wait to see the changes! Ben and his team are easy to work with and very helpful with design and product ideas while keeping our budget in mind!"

"Benjamin’s approach to planning, developing and designing is exquisite. He has incredible eyes and understanding of how to move the design process from concept to reality. He designed a vacation home for me by merging and shaping my numerous needs with conflicting styles into a beautiful home. He is easy to work with and very talented in helping to realize your vision. No matter the size of the project, the level of detail and attention is impeccable!"

kimberly peck architect
Architects and Building Designers in Somerset, NJ
"I live in Manhattan and have a country house in the Catskills upstate. The house is a contemporary design built in the mid 1970's. The "bones" were great but the aesthetic was completely wrong. We had Kimberly redesign the interior of the entire house - from moving electrical work, plumbing, windows and walls to choosing finishes and fixtures. She is amazing and I have referred her to many friends and clients. Next.... the apartment."

Archetype Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Somerset, 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."

Atelier Armbruster
Architects and Building Designers in Somerset, NJ
"Excellent designer with a great ability to communicate the clients taste in a way that is practical as well as beautiful."
- CONDE Construction
Princeton Design Collaborative
Architects and Building Designers in Somerset, NJ
"We engaged Princeton Design Collaborative to provide design concepts for a small master bathroom addition. The current bathroom configuration was virtually unusable. The two concepts provided were cost effective for the client, and provided an aesthetically appealing design to the front of the home that matched the existing facade. The drawings were extremely complete and detailed as to make the permitting process with the township go smoothly. We look forward to working with John Conroy on future projects, and would highly recommend this company to anyone interested in architectural design concepts and drawings."

studio PPARK
Architects and Building Designers in Somerset, NJ
"Anastasia of Studio PPark did an outstanding job leading a gut renovation of a my apartment. She was incredibly attentive to my family's living requirements and came up with creative solutions that we love. She gave excellent recommendations -- that worked with our budget -- on everything from designing a custom two-sink vanity to selecting throw pillows. She was always a consummate professional and quick to respond to my inquiries. She also worked closely with our contractor to ensure the highest standards in the construction phase. Four years later, it is a pleasure to live in this apartment because everything works so well for us."

How do I find the best Somerset 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 Somerset 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 Somerset, 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 Somerset, 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 Somerset 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?
