Featured Reviews for Santa Barbara Architects and Building Designers

Andrulaitis + Mixon
Santa Barbara Architects and Building Designers
Jul 23, 2014
“Kent was a great listener, followed through, and was available as the project progressed. Highly recommend him for his professional approach, attention to detail and anticipating our needs.”

“I interviewed a number of architects and talked to a couple of references before selecting David Ferrin and Arketype Architects for my rather different project, that of building a two story home on top of an existing stone warehouse, providing three floors plus roof-deck in a tight urban setting. Before I selected him, I was impressed with his "can-do" attitude and examples of some of his thinking outside-the-box. The design work I saw was classy and much of it different. His use of materials tends towards the green but when price becomes an issue, he will demur or come up with an alternative. David is quietly spoken and his demeanor is thoughtful, low-key and confident. The project is still 12 months away from completion (I'm writing this in May 2015 ) so it isn't possible to give you final comment but to this point I have been VERY happy with his work. He is quick to effect changes and is very thorough with his plans, attention to detail (according to several other architects and planners) being well above what is normally produced. I swear this attention to detail is what allowed our plans to get through to permitting in so few hearings.”
Kari Architect
Santa Barbara Architects and Building Designers
May 4, 2014
“Lori Kari is great! Being a residential contractor in Chicago for over 28 years, I am accustomed to a variety of working and design styles. In choosing Lori for our personal home in Santa Barbara our desires and concerns could not have been more perfectly satisfied. Her design skills are outstanding. Beyond that, the intricacies of dealing with the departments and committees -including the historic review- whose requirements needed to be mitigated while keeping us happy was handled with the most skillful aplomb. It was delightful to collaborate with Lori from the initial concept to the final flourishes of color and texture.”
Kevin Moore Architect
Santa Barbara Architects and Building Designers
Dec 26, 2013
“As a window/door and glass consultant I've known Kevin for several years and have worked on many projects together from contemporary style to rustic. He is creative, knowledgeable and thorough in all that he does. I'd recommend him for any project. Kevin has a great eye for design and function giving his clients exceptional value from the simple to the extreme while keeping control of budget. I enjoy working with him every chance I get.. He is truly one of those special and gifted architects.”
Tom Ochsner AIA

Jun 18, 2015
“We are currently involved in a large project in Monticello, California designed by Tom. This amazing design is beginning to take shape and will showcase the clients desires perfectly.Tom was instrumental in connecting with us through the Client.. Tom has been very professional throughout the choosing of the hard surface and architectural elements to be placed in the home. It is always nice to find through, and thoughtful professionals to work beside.”
Tom Meaney Architect, AIA

Dec 18, 2013
“The process of designing and building a home on the west coast while we lived on the east coast would have been a challenge. Tom made it easy and fun. He was available whenever we needed him throughout the design and build process. Best of all, Tom is now one of our good friends.”
Two Trees Architect
Santa Barbara Architects and Building Designers
Nov 27, 2017
“Our family had outgrown our home and we were contemplating a move to a larger house. We loved our current location but needed more room. Danny met with us and discussed options for adding on to our current home. After several discussions plans were developed and he continued to meet with our contractor throughout the process to ensure the project was done right. Having Danny involved in the project was the best decision we made. We are so thankful for our home addition and highly recommend Two Tree Architects.”
Thompson Naylor Architects Inc
Santa Barbara Architects and Building Designers
Jun 10, 2012
“Dennis Thompson worked closely with us to design a new home on our land, after our house was destroyed by a wildfire. He was sensitive and cognizant of the emotional factors going into the design process, given our circumstances. Dennis took us through the entire process, from design concept through City approval, from choosing a contractor through managing on-site building issues. Ultimately, we ended up with a beautiful, energy efficient home.”
RRM Design Group
Santa Barbara Architects and Building Designers
Aug 12, 2014
“I have been commissioned to do freelance photography by RRM Design Group since June 2012, so this review is not for only one project, but for multiple projects. I enjoy working with RRM because of their professionalism, community involvement, environmentally conscientious and high level designs. Each project has been interesting and unique, which has made them a pleasure to photograph. RRM has used my photographs on their web site, marketing materials, design competition submittals. A few of the projects have been published in trade magazines, including a cover photo. On the administrative side scheduling and setting up the photo shoots as well as payments have been a smooth process. Communication about photography project objectives and anything else that has come up have been excellent. I would highly recommend working with RRM Design Group.”

“Our firm collaborated with NMA Architects on a large scale project for over 7 years. In every aspect, they exceeded our expectations, and were in our opinion, ideal creative partners for this project. We look forward to the opportunity to work together again soon.”
