Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Vineyard Haven, MA
Sam Sherman Associates, LLC
Architects and Building Designers in Vineyard Haven, MA
"Over 30 years ago, early in his career, Sam Sherman worked on the design of the Chilmark home of our best friends. Our friends introduced us to the Vineyard, and were always very happy with the efficiency of their home and the excellent use of light. When we were able to purchase our own home on the island, Sam was our first choice as a designer, given the positive experience our friends had over the years. We purchased a dark, dingy home and did a near tear down of the existing structure. Sam saw what we did not see, that by reorienting the house we came away with incredible light and views. The design plan he provided not only gave us incredible views but the detail enabled the Contractor to bid the job to the penny. We needed a variance from the town to execute the plan and did not want to buy the house until we knew we could make the changes. Sam’s team dealt with the Edgartown planning board very effectively and efficiently to get the job approved in only 4 weeks. Because we are not full time residents of the island, we also had Sam run the contractor selection process and provide construction oversight. We have built a number of homes before but never have we been on budget and on schedule and never before have we been as pleased with the end result. We would recommend Sam and his team to anyone planning to build or remodel on Martha’s Vineyard. Pamela & Bill Craven"

Katie Hutchison Studio
Architects and Building Designers in Vineyard Haven, MA
"Katie has been a wonderful professional to work with. She is creative, very diligent and timely in her work. Katie has helped us organize our project very well, educating us on the entire design and building process. She has been very conscious about keeping us on budget and has worked very collaboratively with our builder. Katie listens well to our ideas, and is flexible and adaptive with her ideas. Her drawings, plans and schedules are clear and complete. We have wanted to be ecologically careful and design a home that is respectful of environmental factors. She has been a great support in these areas. She has also been a big help in designing our soft interior designs, carpets, window treatments, furniture, pillows etc. She helped us repurpose furniture that compliments our vision and has sensitively advised us on moving on items that do not compliment our project design. She has an eye for light, color and simplicity that I appreciate. She is the whole package."

Carole Hunter Home Design
Architects and Building Designers in Vineyard Haven, MA
"Constraints enhance creativity, it is said. Certainly that is the case with our project and Carole Hunter's plans for renovating our old small house and adding improved kitchen, living and bedroom space. We had a tricky building site - all sand - and the old house was at the edge of the property line. So there were lots of issues re zoning and codes. Carole did a superb job of adding a connector from the old to the new house and positioning the new wing at a slight angle, esthetically appealing and conforming to requirements. Included in the overhaul of the old house is a superb dividing wall between the main bedroom and den - tv on the den side and alcove with built-in shelves on the bedroom side. The old house had overhanging rafters. She kept this look in the new part by insisting on having rafters. In order to maintain a sealed envelope, the rafters had to be scabbed on. Our view was most important to us and it was maximized! When we are asked what we do when we're at the house we always answer "look out the windows." Carole worked well with all four of us - me, my husband, my brother and my sister-in-law. We find the house stunningly understated - just what we wanted. For pictures go to, projects, beach house."

Mark Lawton Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Vineyard Haven, MA
"We hired Lawton Design Studio to renovate a house we had just bought. Mark designed my dream kitchen and turned a crummy in-law apartment into an upscale master suite - walk in closet and fabulous bathroom included. It's now almost two years later and we're still thrilled with the work. The kitchen is perfect for both intimate family dinners and large scale entertaining. And our master suite is a blessed oasis to which we happily retire every night. In fact, I don't like to travel as often as I used to because the accommodations rarely compare with what we have at home! Perhaps most importantly, however, is that we stayed on budget and fantastically on schedule - I gave no wiggle room on the end date and, impressively, everything was finished the day before. Moving and renovating a house is typically not fun or easy, but working with LDS was great. I completely trusted LDS to do the work well and give us a great finished product and we were not disappointed."

"As a builder in Naples, Florida, we recommend Jill and her team at Jill Neubauer Architects to anyone on the Cape, as well as anyone who owns in Naples, Bonita Beach, or Marco Island, who wants to either design and build a custom home, or wants to remodel a luxury home or condo. Jill understands that you want your own special place, that reflects your style and taste. It is imperative that you trust the team you have chosen to design your dream. Jill Neubauer Architects is a team you can trust and we highly recommend them."

Kate S. Warner
Architects and Building Designers in Vineyard Haven, MA
"Kate Warner designed a wonderful house for us on Martha's Vineyard. it was a challenging job,involving a situation with no power on site (the house was solar powered only,) plus a long drive on the beach with deflated tires to a remote site. Nonetheless, she did a wonderful design job,and we were thrilled with the house. She also traveled out every week to oversee the builder, who needed some oversight and control. She communicated constantly with us,and was responsive to all of our thoughts. Every detail was talked through and evolved. We have built or modified several homes,and this was the best experience we have ever had. I would build the same house tomorrow! She is highly intelligent, ethical,thoughtful, listens attentively, but does not hesitate to speak her mind---a trait we valued, as it helped us avoid several missteps. She is a pleasure to work with,and we highly recommend her to anyone."

How do I find the best Vineyard Haven 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 Massachusetts 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 Vineyard Haven 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 Vineyard Haven, MA 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 Vineyard Haven, MA 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 Vineyard Haven 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?
