Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in White Center, WA
PRDG architecture + design
Architects and Building Designers in White Center, WA
"We are about to embark on our 2nd renovation project with PRDG. We fully enjoyed the gut renovation of our 70's contemporary into a modern ski house on an uphill acre in NY's Long Island. Our next project will be a 2nd floor addition with roof deck. We wouldn't think of another architecture firm for the undertaking with our pleasant experience with PRDG."

Ten Directions Design, Architects
Architects and Building Designers in White Center, WA
"TDD's Alan Ness was the architect for the remodel of a mid-century house which hadn't had any alterations since the 1970s. Since we were new to the area he helped guide us to a good selection of contractors. All the changes were to the interior - the major ones being a change from oil furnace to natural gas and modernizing the lighting. He is timely, a good listener, thorough in terms of design and organization, responsive to suggestions, and made two suggestions that we wouldn't have come up with that we are pleased with. He helped us keep the character of the house's original architectural style and helped us make informed choices about materials that were less wasteful and/or 'greener'."

grouparchitect
Architects and Building Designers in White Center, WA
"We hired Group Architect for our major remodel/2nd story addition of our mid-century modern home and worked with the two owners, Brian and Scott. We were extremely impressed by their knowledge of building codes (our house is in an ECA zone), design and material ideas, communication skills (with ourselves and our contractor) and professional manner. They were very responsive to our ideas, requests and many questions. It was very important to Brian, Scott and ourselves that the completed home maintain some of its original character and style and not look like it was an add on, while adding many modern elements. The project was a huge success. We would highly recommend Group Architect."

eric gedney | ARCHITECT
Architects and Building Designers in White Center, WA
"Bottom line: as a contractor who has worked with many architects Eric Gedney is one of the best I've worked with. Here's why: 1) Eric places the highest priority on serving his clients needs first. He has nothing to prove and no ego that needs constant stroking. 2) Eric is highly personable and is a great listener - he also has a wry sense of humor that makes his projects fun to be a part of. He works hard to establish a good connection with his clients and has an amazing ability to translate client wishes - even odd ones - into build-able reality. 3) Eric understands the importance of collaboration and team building and seeks to build the team early in the process. Contractors can easily be marginalized in this relationship and its not uncommon for them to be made the "bad guy" especially as costs grow with design. Eric listens and even defers to contractor input and will revise his plans to accommodate. 4) Eric has a great sense of design, scale, proportion, balance, flow and style which of course is important in an architect. But Eric also possesses a clear understanding of "real life played out in a space". Nothing frivolous, rather, there is a purpose for everything even if the purpose is just to create a deeply personal statement which sums up the clients taste and style. Further, nothing Eric does is run-of-the-mill everything is custom tailored to support the clients desires. 5) Finally, Eric can design to meet budget requirements and even though compromise may hurt he is able to scale a project down to help it get built (he is also happy to scale it up!). This is a very important trait in an architect as many projects in our industry die after design and clients are left with a really nice project that will never be built. A final word of advice to potential clients: when Eric suggests you choose your contractor early on in the process - do it! This is the best way to ensure your project hits your budget goals and building the team early pays off in many remarkable ways."

McNelis Architects
Architects and Building Designers in White Center, WA
"I came to Lisa and her team with a complicated small business project, and they made it a reality. The amount of work, attention to detail, and pleasant professionalism they had, made my entire experience very enjoyable. Their plans were very thorough, and the city had no issues approving everything with ease. I’ve gone back to them for various small projects, and they have consistently helped me to their greatest extent. I highly recommend McNelis Architects!"

Wascha Studios
Architects and Building Designers in White Center, WA
"We are so glad we choose Washa Studios to help us create the home we wished for but couldn't even imagine. Stephanie Washa brainstormed with us the perfect plan for our remodel, helping us all the way through the planning to the finishing touches. She helped us through the myriad of decisions and challenges that are part of a major remodel. She walked us through the stages of our project step by step, offering ideas, field trips and problem solving along the way. We now have a new beautifully comfortable, elegant, and welcoming home that we love and enjoy sharing with our friends and family."

Motionspace Architecture + Design
Architects and Building Designers in White Center, WA
"We finished a total remodel of our home 3 years ago. Nazim Nice, principal of this firm, still returns our emails and questions as if he were still on the job. He is an architect, but we have tapped into his design skills for help with curtains and furniture placement. He is a consummate professional and exceedingly generous with his design skills and good taste! We are grateful."

Shuler Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in White Center, WA
"“Mark was asked to submit a proposal to design a house that I was planning to build in Preston, WA. After interviewing several Architects, Mark's portfolio of previous work was most impressive. He had as many detailed drawings for the meticulous woodwork of the interior of the house (what I was looking for) as he did for the structure / exterior of the house. Since that time, Mark has supported several creative designs to include an in-law apartment and the planning of a home I wish to build in Bend, OR. His responsiveness when I have questions and the ideas he offered have been tremendously helpful and I consider him an ultimate professional in his work. I appreciate his high sense of integrity in all that he does.”"

microhouse

"My construction company, www.ncompass-llc.com, has worked with Bruce from Microhouse for several years.

How do I find the best White Center 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 Washington 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 White Center 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 White Center, WA 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 White Center, WA 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 White Center 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?
