Featured Reviews for San Francisco Architects and Building Designers

Mayberry Workshop
San Francisco Architects and Building Designers
Oct 26, 2018
“We couldn't be happier with the design of our ADU. Adam's design captured our vision perfectly and was wonderful to collaborate with throughout the entire process.”
Anat Shmariahu
San Francisco Architects and Building Designers
Feb 15, 2011
“Anat helped me renovate and expand my 60 years-old start-up house. Anat modernized the layout and successfully extended the flow of natural light. Anat followed the project from inception to fruition, working out permits and coordinating contractors while at the same time helping me keep sane and within budget. It's great to have a good professional at your service, and Anat proved to be a great architect and partner for my project.”
Anthony Medina Design
San Francisco Architects and Building Designers
Aug 14, 2017
“Tony was absolutely the best architect! He really took the time to understand our needs, and then he was very responsive through all of the twists and turns as we worked on the designs to figure out the best home for our family. He came up with amazing ideas, and his 3D modeling really helped us to visualize the home. I strongly recommend Tony for any project!”
Trademark Architecture + Interiors

Feb 12, 2013
“We are currently working with Kenny on a remodel of the front half of our home, consisting of a kitchen, great room, dining room and an office. He is a pleasure to work with, is extremely thorough and has great and innovative ideas. He listens to your wants and needs, delivers a great work product and he makes the design process fun. We would recommend him without any reservations!!!!”
Robert Stiles Architecture
San Francisco Architects and Building Designers
Oct 24, 2013
“We have worked with Rob for several years now on a few projects and he always does an amazing job. In addition to being an extremely talented architect, he is very easy to work with. We completely gutted our kitchen and Rob oversaw the entire project while we were away. I had assumed that we would need to hire a kitchen designer along with an architect, but Rob was able to design a beautiful and also incredibly functional kitchen. Having lived with our new kitchen for over 2 years now, there isn't a single thing I would change. He has a great aesthetic and was also extremely helpful in picking out hardware, lighting, and appliances. We have also had him work on the outside of our house and he is currently working on several bedrooms, bathrooms and an office. Rob is very efficient and detail oriented - his drawings are very thorough which always helps make the projects go smoothly.”
Norwell Design Build
San Francisco Architects and Building Designers
Aug 15, 2016
“We had a great experience working with Mike and Ian at Norwell Design Build. They have a unique talent for setting an overall vision and following through with exquisite detail. As first-time renovators, we asked tons of questions and they listened, developed creative solutions and incorporated our ideas as well. In partnership, we were able to marry form and function in all the best ways. We *love* our home and would highly recommend working with them (and their incredible team) to create your own dream home!”
Actual-Size Architecture
San Francisco Architects and Building Designers
Jul 29, 2016
“I've worked with Geof for multiple years on multiple projects and always had the same fantastic experience. He has great vision and I love the ideas he brings to my projects: he is phenomenal with light and space and blending architectural styles. He's also a great listener: I always feel that he recognizes my priorities and sense of style (not to mention my budget) and stays true to that. We live in an old house in San Francisco, where renovations can be challenging, but somehow he's always managed to make my ideas work. He has a great rapport with multiple contractors and introduced us to a contractor we had a wonderful experience with. He is punctual and reliable. I highly recommend him!”
WENZELWERK
San Francisco Architects and Building Designers
Dec 14, 2016
“Brandon helped us by rendering plans from our drawing in a 3-d model so we could scrutinize our design. We had spent many months working with our local draftsman and while he brought our plans to life, Brandon allowed us to really see it. We were very pleased with his work and how fast he delivered. He had some solid suggestions for parts of the plan we hadn't thought of and in the end we are really glad we hired him.”
James McCalligan Architect
San Francisco Architects and Building Designers
Mar 7, 2014
“My wife and I hired Jim's firm to design and draw our home in Sebastopol. We are extremely happy we went to them. Jim's use of glass and space is incredible. I have been around construction my whole life and have played designer a little on other homes but we are so glad we went to a true professional who has the kind of experience, imagination and vision that Jim has. His price was very reasonable for the quality product that he delivered - way ahead of his proposed schedule we might add! The house went together smoothly exactly as drawn! We would whole-heartedly recommend Jim and his firm - they were a joy to work with all during the process. He gave us great tips and recommendations on interior design too... Tom and Jessica C.”

“I am a licensed civil engineer and certified energy analyst. In the past 2+ years, we have worked closely on a number of residential projects in the San Francisco Bay Area. Ashton and James are extremely knowledgeable, responsive, and passionate about their work. As a seasoned professional in the building industry, I would not hesitate to hire them myself for any architecturally related projects. Keep up the good work!”
