Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Dallas
Stocker Hoesterey Montenegro
Architects and Building Designers in Dallas
"Our team has had the privilege of partnering with SHM on multiple projects, including several that are currently being built. The SHM team -- led by David Stocker, Mark Hoesterey and Enrique Montengro -- takes creativity to a whole new level with every house they design by never approaching two projects the same. Their ability to take in the environment surrounding a home and maximize it is remarkable, resulting in homes that showcase the properties they live on. We are quick to refer new clients to SHM because we know the high-quality of their end-product. Each architect brings a unique perspective to the projects they lead, and their team is always professional and helpful. We truly enjoy partnering with them to bring their visions to life."

Direct Home Design
Architects and Building Designers in Dallas
"After reviewing Direct Home Designs information on Houzz, I decided to contact Wendy. She promptly returned my call. We set up a meeting within the next couple of days to discuss new house plans. After sitting down with her and discussing my "wants" and my attempts to sketch the layout, I knew she was the perfect person to design our new home. She really listened to what we liked and didn't like. She asked questions on how our current house functioned. She brought up items we hadn't even thought about! Needless to say, our new house plans are wonderful. We will be breaking ground soon and I can't wait to post pictures so everyone can see how great Wendy's work is!"

Maestri, LLC.
Architects and Building Designers in Dallas
"I loved everything about working with maestri! We used them for an extensive kitchen renovation in a 1930's tutor home in Lakewood. The project included a sitting area off the kitchen, additional arched doorways throughout the 1st floor, addition of 2 sets of French doors on the first floor, and removal of an old chimney (that was only used for venting purposes. The architect truly treated our project like his own. The designs were wonderful and very few revisions had to be made before we had a final set of plans. The finish out selections were perfect. They followed the progress of our project as needed. And we celebrated completion of a renovation that would not have been possible without the maestri team. I highly recommend to anyone!"

DEMESNE
Architects and Building Designers in Dallas
"Jamie is designing our home, she has been attentive, focused and most importantly listens to what we want and is able to translate those conversations to drawings. She is truly an artist in her profession, Jamie's cares and strives to give the the client exactly what they want during the concept stages and throughout the entire design process. Jamie is a pleasure to work with. Her passion and easing going nature make it easy to connect and work with Jamie. Thanks Jamie!! Cheryl & Clayton"

Heritage Design Studio
Architects and Building Designers in Dallas
"We hired Chrisopher to design a home with an in law suite that would suit not just my family but my extended family. His ability to translate concepts/ideas/preferences/thoughts into a well though out, practical, creative home design goes above and beyond anything we could have anticipated. We are simply awed time and time again by his almost instantaneous grasp of how to redesign a space in a matter of seconds into something even better than what we had envisioned. Simply put, architectual design is in Chris' DNA and it is reflected in the beauty and creativity of the homes and floor plan designs. Should we require home design services again in the future, we would not hesitate to engage Heritage/Chris and would recommend them to anyone looking to embark on the nebulous journey of home design."
- Adriana Lopez-Hammer
Melchin Residential Design, LLC
Architects and Building Designers in Dallas
"I have known Steve for about 3 years and we have worked together on numerous projects. Steve is very professional, is very knowledgeable about the construction industry. When he meets with a new client he listens to there needs and desires, he works witin the budget set by the client. When he has the drawings complete he sets down with the client and contractor goes over every detail of the drawings. After the project has started he stays in contact with the contractor to make sure everything is going smoothly, if there is a problem he comes to the job site and will help resolve the issue. Steve Melchin is professional!!!! from the word go."
- Montgomery Contracting
Domiteaux Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Dallas
"Can I just say DREAM TEAM ???? My husband and I hired Mark Domiteaux and Douglas Payne of Domiteaux + Baggett Architects, and they designed us the world's coolest house (it's called the Now Haus and can be seen on their website). The process of designing the Now Haus with Mark and Doug was so fun, so collaborative, so successful. To say that Mark is brilliant, is an understatement. To say that Doug was a fabulous design guide, keeping us safely away from anything that would destroy the integrity of the very minimalist esthetic we desired, is also an understatement. Now, 4 years after the design was done, and 3 years after the house was built, I still miss the deeply satisfying creative relationship I had with Mark and Doug, People told me, before we began the design process, that I would eventually come to hate my architects. Boy were they WRONG ! I adore my architects and cant wait to do another house with them."

How do I find the best 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 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 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 Dallas 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 Dallas 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 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?
