Featured Reviews for Portland Architects and Building Designers

Neal Huston & Associates
Portland Architects and Building Designers
Oct 5, 2013
“I have worked with Neal Huston and Associates many times for both commercial and residential projects, as an owner (end consumer) and as a third-party general contractor. NHA's work is timely, relevant, and cognizant of the client's needs and wants. I would highly recommend Neal Huston and Associates for any commercial or residential design.”
Richard Brown Architect AIA
Portland Architects and Building Designers
Mar 28, 2013
“Richard and his staff were a pleasure to deal with. He was able, after some mild beatings, to assimilate our ideas and add his own to create a very useful amalgam. We still enjoy his input and appreciation of space. Our error was failing to hire him to supervise construction, in addition to designing the building.”
WAI/GORNY Design, inc.
Portland Architects and Building Designers
Jul 27, 2015
“We have worked with Wai/GorrnyDesign on several renovations and restoration projects of our 1917 Craftsman house. Over the last several years, those projects have included: the addition of a front porch on the house, a kitchen remodel with pantry, fireplace brickwork and mantel restoration and the renovation of our sun room (which is now my absolute favorite room in the house!). We have the highest regard for Wai/Gorny's work—both in terms of design and of knowledge about houses from this era. Our relationship with Alexandra from Wai/Gorny has been a real three-way partnership--between us, the contractor and her. She definitely has opinions and perspectives to offer based on her expertise, but she always listens to our needs and desires, and is committed to finding the best designs after factoring in our input. She is very approachable and willing to meet with us anytime we've requested getting together. Best of all, she has a great sense of humor and has been a lot of fun to work with! Alexandra has also been an excellent advocate for us with the city and the permitting process related to one of our projects. When there were questions from the City, she promptly and thoroughly addressed their information needs. We have just embarked on another project with Wai/Gorny--this time a bathroom remodel and some updates to several bedrooms. She's loaned us personal copies of her books and provided web resources and links where we could get ideas. As you can tell, we keep coming back to Wai/Gorny for all of our remodeling and renovation projects because of the quality of her ideas, designs, and ability to work with our contractors and subcontractors.”

“Desia has provided great guidance and planning downtown Portland workspaces. We constantly get compliments on our paint and furniture and we owe it all to Atomic Design. I would highly recommend Desia for home or work space design. She is creative, budget-conscious and super fun!”
Wright Design Studio
Portland Architects and Building Designers
May 29, 2015
“We recently completed our dream/retirement home in Central Oregon. While it was not our first new house, it was our first custom home. We were basically at the end of the design process when I realized what we had was simply not matching what we had envisioned. I had communicated poorly. We hired Rick to help us tweak the project and he did that and more. Essentially, he delivered the look and feel we sought, beginning with a beautiful pencil drawing of what he thought we wanted - it is framed and hangs in our house today. He listened - and was the consummate professional. We couldn't be more thrilled with what his work produced.”
Guggenheim Architecture + Design Studio

Sep 17, 2014
“We are thrilled that our Origami Coffee Table was selected for a recent project. It was such a treat to collaborate with Fig Studio. They do such beautiful work!”
LX Design
Portland Architects and Building Designers
Jan 30, 2019
“It has been a great experience working with Matt, I have called him with big and small questions throughout the process and he has either been able to answer them on the spot or quickly get back to me with a response. He was able to fit everything I hoped for into my 700sq/ft garage/ADU project and I am excited to see it come to life!”
Departure l Architecture
Portland Architects and Building Designers
Apr 4, 2015
“Departure came out to our property after the 2013 Build-It-Green tour and talked to us about potential of building an ADU. A year later, we decided to move forward with building an ADU and again, contacted Dan Lajoie. He came out to our property with the notes and ideas discussed the previous year and was willing to spend a long time discussing our hopes for our ADU. He was able to take our ideas and create a beautiful space that works perfectly for us and our property. Throughout the beginning of the process Dan was available to answer our questions, he spent time sharing pictures and showing us ideas as well as meeting with us regularly to look at his progress. He always took our perspective into account and reworked some of the drafts to ensure we were getting what we wanted; but he also had fantastic ideas that we had not thought of and did a great job inserting his personal character into the project. Overall, we have been really impressed with Dan's patience and his ability to turn a small space into something so functional and beautiful.”
Harka Architecture
Portland Architects and Building Designers
Mar 18, 2016
“Pat is a friendly professional architect. His firm has helped me with a basement remodel, but ncluding a bathroom addition. Very knowledgable about green building and the newest materials. LEED certified.”
Nathan Good Architects PC
Portland Architects and Building Designers
Jan 28, 2014
“Nathan Good is an excellent architect. He is extremely experienced. He listens well and he explains well. He works well with other professionals because he has a broad understanding of all fields associated with building and remodeling a home and he is an excellent communicator. He has great taste for all styles even though he specializes in green architecture, but it is his judgment, his vision and his wisdom that puts him apart from other architects with whom we have worked. One conversation with Nathan and we knew we had found our guide.”
