Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsMay 7, 2013
Aaron has been helping me build my dream house for the past 3-4 years. He has been a crucial part in getting the design right, the plans approved, all the way down to the final finishes and door knobs. His design sense honors a healthy balance of progressive ideas and functional living.
Jeannette Architects
Architects, Architecture Firms, & Building Designers in Topanga
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsJune 20, 2012
My wife and I hired Jeannette Architects to assist us with a major remodel (interior/exterior) of our 3,500 sq. ft. ranch style home in Newport Beach. The task: incorporate warm contemporary design into our 1970's "woody cabin." As a real estate developer and because it's our third major house remodel there were many design elements we knew we wanted but many more that we needed help with. As capable as Jeff (Jeannette) is with his design sense, we believe that it's his ability to listen to his clients, understand client goals, how we will live in the space and how that fits into our budget is what sets Jeff apart from other architects. The Jeannette team met aggressive time constraints, produced a thorough set of construction documents, were always quick to provide clarification and answers to our questions and were great resources for product and material options and information. True professionals that we would use again and confidently refer to others. Our project is nearing completion and I can't wait to share photos.
SUBU Design Architecture
Architects, Architecture Firms, & Building Designers in Topanga
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsNovember 13, 2012
May Sung is a very talented architect with a very realistic approach and a keen eye for detail. She is a humble individual with Ivy League credentials. May graduated from Harvard ..... which she will never brags about; so I will..... She has a fantastic sense of humor but takes her work very seriously . May will not compromise on delivery and demands the best from every one on the project. That is probably the best part of her accomplishments. She delivers a great product. Any one who has had the pleasure to work with her knows this about her. I would not hesitate hiring SUBU; you won't be disappointed if you do. May is a gem. She was very instrumental in making our project a huge success. Their work is an extension of who they are and in the end they became a part of us. At the beginning of the project all the way through, they treated us like we are family and listened to our needs. I feel lucky to have had the experience of working with their ethos and in being part of a team creating a beautiful home. In the end I do consider them family and admire their abilities . It was a fantastic experience. I highly recommend them.
EZ Plans, Inc

I grew up with a father who is a master contractor. In my adult life, I have been involved in countless home renovations, so I've always thought architects are a waste of time & money. They always seem to be writing checks with the customers' money, and have no basis in reality or practicality: they seem so frivolous. Hubby and I bought a mid-century modern home that had been turned into a tuscan style by the previous owners. (can you imagine?) We needed help getting approval from the local city planning board who are a NIGHTMARE to deal with (average of 8-10 plan checks, most cities do 2-3!?) We hired Glen with EZPlans to help us. Glen handled acrimonious city officials, seeming design impossibilities (and even a few vastly different design ideas between hubby and I) with tact, professionalism, and good humor. Dealing with EZ Plans was a breeze. I am so impressed with their vision, their professionalism, and the very talented, creative (and practical) architects they hire. They are exceptional communicators, and are as intuitive as they are talented. EZ Plans turned a simple contractor grade design we could have come up with ourselves, to a design that respected the mid-century bones of our home, and brought it to the practical standards we needed the home to suit. The design they came up with easily increased the value of our renovation tenfold. the only direction they had from me was "I want to respect the home's bones with materials in their natural element, nothing frivolous, but we need the house to be super specialized for our dogs." (maybe that's a bit frivolous....) They took this and ran with it. Incidentally, they are AVID dog lovers (almost as nutty as hubby and I are, ) so they came up with such cool suggestions that will make our old dogs' lives (and our lives) easier. As someone who has scoffed at the need for an architect, (come on, my dad is a contractor!) I can assure anyone: the design of a talented architect is worlds apart from what a contractor, or even designer, could come up with. They take things to another level. Glen increased the value of the renovation by making the design in line with architectural design elements, not current trends that would be outdated quickly after installation. More importantly, they made changes to the home to fit OUR lifestyle and needs, instead of us changing our needs and lifestyles to accommodate the home. This is the difference: architects build homes, contractors build houses. Hubby and I are so pleased with our experience at EZPlans. They make incredible planning, design and architecture...easy. :)
Dworsky Architecture
Architects, Architecture Firms, & Building Designers in Topanga
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsFebruary 18, 2014
I could not be more pleased with Dworsky Architecture. We embarked on a major remodel, and from the beginning Doug was the perfect professional. He has incredible taste and was able to guide us from concept to design to execution so that the end result was far greater than we had even hoped. Doug worked beautifully with our contractor and quickly resolved any problems that arose with calmness and the utmost professional demeanor. The architectural design was so detailed that there were no surprises, and the job came in essentially exactly on budget. Every detail was sourced, every quote was reviewed and every question answered quickly. If you enjoy clean, contemporary design and are looking for an architectural firm that will be a pleasure to work with, I would heartily recommend DA.
Vertebrae Architecture

Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsSeptember 4, 2014
Lisa Little worked wonders in our smallish Venice space. We had complicated needs and she found elegant solutions within a tight budget. We redid a kitchen from the walls out, extended it a bit, added a bar, added in a huge walk-in closet and staircase in the master bedroom, and reconfigured a guest loft. The latter involved enclosing a half-wall for privacy via rotating shutters that Lisa dreamed up and designed. The shutters rotate open when the loft is not in use and closed when we have company up there. This was a brilliant idea, brilliantly executed at not much cost. Lisa helped with fixture choice, color choice, and furniture choice, and worked closely with the general contractor and his subs. She exhibited great taste, a firm hand, and a keen eye on the budget. Recommended without reservation.
Make Architecture
Architects, Architecture Firms, & Building Designers in Topanga
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsNovember 4, 2014
We thoroughly enjoyed working with Bill Beauter and Jess Mullen-Carey of MAKE Architecture on our house. We'd worked with another architect but hadn't gotten a design we liked, so we started from scratch and sketched a floor plan ourselves. We even made a cardboard model to show the modern style we had in mind. But we wanted a good architect to give the design the polish it needed. Bill and Jess were recommended to us by a friend of our son. They improved what we had, remaining loyal to our vision while integrating a better roof design that achieved a pleasing volume to the interior, and providing overall coherence to the design. After completing the final plans, they worked with our contractor to make sure the house turned out the way we wanted. Always a pleasure to work with, Bill and Jess gave us great suggestions and were responsive to requests. Every day we admire the lines of our new house. We love living here and are delighted we found such great architects!
