Brian Gille Architects, Ltd.
Architects and Building Designers in New Orleans
"Brian Gille designed and oversaw the building of our uptown home. Our goal was to build a new home that looked like it had been in our neighborhood for years. We wanted the inside to reflect the old New Orleans design as well. Brian's plan for our home exceeded our expectations! Every square inch was designed with care and was optimally utilized. He worked with us to stay within budget while still designing a home that was beautiful and structurally sound. His staff was excellent and extremely professional. Brian saw our project through the build and his advice and guidance was invaluable!"

Albert Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in New Orleans
"Leslie Raymond and Richard Albert designed the renovation for our home- a total restoration of the house which was built in the 1850's in New Orleans. The home had been in disrepair and neglect for many years. My husband and I were interested in restoring the home to it's former glory- preserving the beautiful original elements while renovating to standards of present day living. This was quite a challenge- design wise. From start to finish, Leslie and Richard paid attention to our vision, and produced spectacular results! Always available and ready to answer our questions, Leslie and Richard achieved our dream. The elegant touches that Leslie designed and collaborated with us to execute, have made our home first class in every detail. We are so happy with the restoration, and highly recommend Leslie and Richard as your architects. Susan and Ronnie Mizell"

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 New Orleans 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 New Orleans 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?
