Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Louisville
Rock Paper Hammer
Architects and Building Designers in Louisville
"We enlisted Rock Paper Hammer to design and overhaul our back deck, sun room, laundry room and 3rd floor. Emily (Architect), Derek and TM (Contractors) were extremely professional, detail-oriented, trustworthy and committed to very high quality workmanship. Emily's designs are crisp and thoughtful and she works collaboratively, readily incorporating the home owner's ideas and input. Derek and TM executed emily's architectural drawings perfectly and worked precisely within budget. We're very pleased with the final product and would hire Rock Paper Hammer again without a moment's hesitation. I would emphatically recommend this strong team to anyone with an appreciation for good design and craftsmanship."

Firm Foundation Drafting & Design, LLC.

"I've been building houses and working with Draftsmen for over 25 years. Finding one who is detailed, listens to the clients and creates a set of drawings that are very easy to read and accurate can be a challenge. Matt not only meets this criteria he often exceeds it with great customer service and a heart to serve his clients well. I would highly recommend Firm foundation to my clients and fellow builders."

One World Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Louisville
"We had a 3 year old home which we loved but was no longer working for our growing family. We approached OWA to add a bedroom and media space to the basement and much needed functionality and light to our home office. In the end, they improved nearly every room in our home. It was wonderful having all the trades including painting, millwork, HVAC, electrical, carpentry, flooring, and drywall under their direction. This was our first experience with a design-build firm, fortunately OWA laid out the process beforehand and expertly guided us through planning, drafting, demo, and construction. The team worked carefully and thoughtfully to incorporate the new design seamlessly into our existing architecture. We couldn't be happier with the quality of construction and attention to detail."

"Travis provided multiple options for our first floor kitchen remodel. His experience resulted in a effective flow throughout our home. His professional products allowed us to achieve our desired result. His drawings provided the level of detail needed to receive multiple fair bids allowing significant cost savings on a $100k project."
- Jonathan Means
Design Farm Architecture Studio
Architects and Building Designers in Louisville
"I had Emma help in designing a small 480sf apartment which would include a kitchenette, bathroom, bed and living space above an existing garage. She was able to help focus my ideas and vision for the space. She helped with floor layout options, roofline ideas and created working blueprints for the project. It was quite an enjoyable experience working with Design Farm."

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 Louisville 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 Louisville 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?
