My wife and I had the great pleasure to work with Stand Architects on the remodel of our 4,000 sq. ft. home a year ago. The remodel involved extensive structural changes with removal of several load bearing walls and the redesigning of our kitchen, family room, living room, dining room, master bath, master bedroom, home office, and the addition of a loggia by our backyard pool. Steve Stand had a clear understanding of what our vision for the remodel would be, an excellent sense of design, a thorough understanding of what the structural engineering would require, and a well developed plan for how the project should proceed. He continued to be involved in supervising the construction process and was always readily available when issues arose requiring his attention. In addition, he went out of his way to ensure that the plans went through the city review process without delay - hand walking them through the city's various departments to ensure there were no delays in our project. We had no unexpected problems with our project nor did we have any delays due to the architectural portion of our remodel. I am completely satisfied with Stand Architects and would gladly use them again in the future. I would give them ten stars if that were possible!
Steve Stand has been integral in several of our full-home renovations. As a committed and passionate architect, he finds the beauty in the original structures while completely reimagining the space beyond what our clients could have dreamed for themselves. As interior designers, we appreciate the level of involvement and care he provides throughout the entire process, not just the beginning architectural phase. Beyond providing the architectural plan, Steve sets the foundation for the interior features of the home. He can envision the end result, and he understands what is takes to execute the interior design. His collaborative and creative presence onsite with the design-build team is invaluable. Steve develops a personal relationship with his clients to really understand their goals and dreams for a functional, well-balanced home. He is as diligent and intentional with his designs as he is with his communication making him one of our most valued architects to work with.
We used Stand Architects for a 4,200 square foot total renovation and we couldn't be happier with this decision! Steve is a very professional, creative, and responsive architect and always went above and beyond to ensure our project's success. He was always able to easily translate our ideas to paper and was conscious of form, function, and budget. His quick response time allowed us to make changes in the midst of the project without experiencing any setbacks. His knowledge of HOA, city and state requirements were absolutely priceless in getting us through the administrative process quickly and easily. We would wholeheartedly recommend Steve Stand of Stand Architects and would happily work with him again!
Steve was referred to us by a friend, who also happens to be an architect, for a whole house remodeling project. We had never undertaken a project like this before and were looking for someone with the knowledge and ability to guide us through the process and the vision to provide us with multiple design options to consider. We were initially impressed with his responsiveness to our questions and his willingness to take the time to explain the process and how he could be of assistance. In fact, after meeting with Steve we were so sure he was the right person for the job that we didn’t bother to interview anyone else. This turned out to be a great decision. Steve was incredibly responsive, thorough and professional throughout the entire project. From presenting multiple design options at the outset and walking us through the pros and cons of each, to making necessary modifications during construction very quickly to keep the project moving, he did everything we could have asked and then some. In addition to being excellent at his job, he is also a really nice guy and a pleasure to work with. The only thing that will keep us from working with Steve in the future is that we love our new home so much we may never leave! For that we certainly owe him a huge thank you and our complete endorsement. If you are looking for a great architect and an even better person that will work tirelessly for you, and with you, to make your dream home a reality, do yourself a favor and call Steve.
We have had the pleasure of working with Steve Stand on a full scale gut/expansion/renovation of a single family home in Orange County. From our first meeting we got a sense that Steve understood our goals and design. We could not be happier with the choices and suggestions he made during the development process. Suggestions of alternate strategies for space and flow were introduced and Steve went through all the necessary steps with the structural engineer to make the vision happen. Having Steve on our team to navigate this process was so valuable. Steve was easy to communicate with and was able to supply us with anything we needed on the first request each time and often on the same day. We have been very happy with Steve Stand and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. We love our home. Steve was with us from Start to Finish.
Steve Stand of Stand Architects was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. Steves vision , experience and fantastic work ethic was the best of I have seen in all my years as a contractor and a homeowner. His attention to detail and constant concern for quality was second to none. I would give Stand Architects the highest rating possible .
I have worked with Steve Stand on multiple projects in south Orange County and his design, attention to details and professionalism is excellent.
