Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Orlando
Lamar Design
Architects and Building Designers in Orlando
"All of the people at Lamar Design are great at what they do. Tom and Steve were so helpful and kind. They really went the extra mile for me, whether they accompanied me to interview vendors or checking on the house throughout the building process. I can't say enough good about their team. I would recommend them to anyone!"

Pemberton Home Design LLC
Architects and Building Designers in Orlando
"We own a well designed and built 1926 bungalow, which had a not-so-well designed addition in the 1950s. We loved and treasured the original part of the house, but wanted to remove the addition and add a master bedroom suite and home office that would blend in with the charm of the original house and its steep-pitched (12/12) tile roof. We talked to three architects (paid two to draw concept sketches) but no one could – or wanted to take the time to - determine how to tie into the stick-built roof and create an addition large enough to meet our needs but not overwhelm the original structure. That is, no one until we met Mark Pemberton. We had heard of Mark and knew he had designed a number of beautiful – and very large – homes in central Florida and thought that our little addition would not be of interest to him; but decided to contact him. It was clear from our first meeting that if anybody could solve our design problem it would be Mark. It didn’t come easy but he was engaged, involved, innovative, and persistent. With Mark’s attention to detail – and a builder and roofer (who found and installed matching 1926 Ludowici tile) with the same craftsman dedication – we have a wonderful addition to our home."

Armistead Design & Drafting
Architects and Building Designers in Orlando
"Really enjoy working with Scott. The thing I really appreciate about him is that he works hard to understand your complete needs. With artistic folks sometimes you can be challenged with them doing more of what they want than what you want, but that is not the case with Scott. He is the consummate professional and at every step through the process felt that he was always looking out for my needs. For the project that I did, I acted as my own GC, since it was going to be a home addition, Scott was invaluable in helping me navigate that process and recommending who I should consider and who I should steer clear from with regards to sub-contractors. This was way above and beyond in my book. Without his help no way I would have been able to finish with the level of success I had. We will be building another house in a few years and would not consider using anyone else."

She has exquisite taste and is able to work within any budget. Her background as an architect makes her design experience, wholly different. She has an amazing eye for spacial details. If you are completely motivated to change your living space, Susan is the expert for you."

Hyatt Design, Inc.
Architects and Building Designers in Orlando
"I have worked with Greg to design two diiferent homes as well as assisting in remodel decisions. Our current project is a 5000 sq ft home on Lake Maitland. Greg is a hands on designer that takes your desires and incorporates practicality and and buildability into account. He is exceptional in transforming a vision to paper and follows through during the entire project. He works well with general contractors and interior designers if you choose one. He is extremely detailed oriented and understands all the local building codes. The design is by far the most important element of any great project. I would highly recommend him!"

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 Orlando 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 Orlando 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?
