Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Tampa, FL
Hittmeier Design Consultants
Architects and Building Designers in Tampa, FL
"Todd has amazing talent. He is an artist whose personal ownership in each project is unparalleled. He listens to what your vision is, and brings it to life.......and then some! He is not an architect that drops off the drawings with your builder and you never see him again. He is a true partner on the journey to your dream home. I highly recommend Todd. He has taught us a lot over the time we have been building our home. He is good about explaining architecture, and incorporating the architecture into your interior vision/design as well. We do not plan on building another dream home, but if we did, there would be no question as to who our architect would be - Todd Hittmeier."

Jennifer Garcia Architecture Studio
Architects and Building Designers in Tampa, FL
"Jenn did a great job creating a new kitchen space in an older house where the kitchen was pathetic! We love our new, modern, spacious kitchen, and Jenn even created a walk in pantry space out of nothing! In doing so, she moved walls around so now when we walk into the house we have a direct view of our lake. She was also timely, professional, and reasonably priced. Thank you Jenn!"

MOD.el-Tom Szumlic
Architects and Building Designers in Tampa, FL
"Tom Szumlic designed a wonderful house that has served us very well for the past twenty-two years. He was a great listener during the planning stages, was patient with a perfectionistic client, and came up with a functional, beautiful house for our family. We get lots of compliments and notes through our mail slot from people wanting to buy if it should ever be available, which is always nice! Frequently I think about humorous things Tom said during the planning and building, and I remember what a special experience it was. Actually, the rubber met the road recently when I had to replace a column in the breezeway that had sunk, and the contractor wondered if the foundation had failed. We pulled out the plans and saw that Tom, in his wisdom, had reinforced that area with extra concrete, so we knew we were probably only dealing with some 22-year-old rotten wood. It was an easy fix, and I was reminded once again how blessed we were to have been able to work with Tom."

ROJO Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Tampa, FL
"ROJO Architecture designed our 1,850 square foot modern house in Tampa, Florida. Not only did they design the house structure, but also designed much of the interior space, including the kitchen and bathrooms. Our experience was one of dealing with truly talented professionals, in a collaborative effort, with their ultimate focus on our complete satisfaction. Although we were not so lucky with our choice of home builder, ROJO assisted us through the process by helping us to understand the important issues to focus on over the 14 months of building our house. The constant assurance given by ROJO made us feel that we were in control of a process that at times felt like the wheels had come off. Ultimately, we now reside in our amazingly wonderful house, a space that is highly designed and perfect for our lifestyle. Simply put - ROJO is excellent at what they do!!"

EDAD studio
Architects and Building Designers in Tampa, FL
"Elizabeth and David are wonderful Architects and Designers. We have a beach cottage built in 1938, and with the designs from Elizabeth and David were able to modernize our home but keep many of the original, classic features. The job was designed and managed on time and on budget. The end result was that our home was selected as the Primier Home on the Pass-A-Grille Womans Club Home Tour in 2009. I would recommend them for any project!"

How do I find the best Tampa 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 Florida 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 Tampa 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 Tampa, FL 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 Tampa, FL 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 Tampa 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?
