Mahya Salehi Studio | Architecture + Interiors |
Berkeley, CA Architectural Design Professionals
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsApril 26, 2022
We hired Mahya for the design work for adding an ADU to a 7-unit apartment building. Mahya and her team has been excellent. Her knowledge about the building codes, the ADU requirements, and the ins and outs of Berkeley Planning and Permit Process. Working with her and her team was very pleasant. They have taken care of most difficult tasks and have worked with me on the design details and any modifications required by the City. I highly recommend her and her team and I will definitely hire her again in the future for other projects.

CB Architecture + Design

Megan transformed a tired 1960's ranch-style into a beautiful home. We had struggled for many years with how to replace an outdated railing separating a long hallway from the sunken living room. Megan came up with a shelf design that was both beautiful and practical. She turned a dark panelled kitchen into a light, airy heart of the home. Megan brings architectural savvy and a fine attention to detail -- the style and position of every light, the type of plumbing fixture, the loveliest tile and backsplash, the handles on the kitchen cabinets, the most durable and beautiful wood floor. She accompanied us in selecting these items. Most of all, Megan is a great -- and fun!--person to work with. She listens, provides options, is always on time and stays within budget. She helped us develop the criteria for selecting a contractor, assisted us with interviews, all of which enabled us to select a contractor who fit our needs and budget. In summary, Megan is not only a skilled designer, but a highly effective project manager.
Dotter & Solfjeld Architecture + Design
Berkeley, CA Architectural Design Professionals
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsNovember 1, 2012
We worked with Dotter & Solfjeld most recently to design an Italian villa on a hillside in Saratoga, CA. This was actually our third project together as they worked on an expansion and remodel of our previous house in Palo Alto as well. As soon as we bought the lot in Saratoga Russ and Wencke, of D&S, began studying the landscape, spending significant time at different points in the day to intimately understand the light, the views and the flow of the hillside. Russ and Wencke are experts at both exterior and interior architecture and design, and they are an amazing team! Once they felt they knew the property, they spent time with us to understand what we liked and disliked and then began designing our house based largely on Italian building principles of thick walls and simple, yet elegant, construction. D&S involved us in every step of the process and ensured we were completely comfortable with each phase of the design before moving forward. They totally went above and beyond the call of duty by diligently working with our planning department and even one neighbor. They were our advocates with the City and were clearly extremely well respected by everybody they interfaced with. During the building process, D&S worked closely with our contractor and foreman to ensure that the project ran smoothly and stayed on budget. Often times, there is tension between architects and contractors, but our contractor loved working with D&S. Some of our friends have also used D&S to design ultra modern homes...D&S is super versatile and we unequivocally and enthusiastically recommend them.
Steve Swearengen, AIA | the Architects office
Berkeley, CA Architectural Design Professionals
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsSeptember 8, 2014
Steve and I met by having a common thread through BNI (although in different chapters). I could tell right away that he was going to be a solid architectural resource for FMSProjects (general contractors) and I have been able to refer several projects to him with complete faith and assurance that he will fit in well with our clients. He is easy to work with and brings a professional attitude and wide range of planning and architectural knowledge to our projects.
Timothy J. Banuelos Architect
Berkeley, CA Architectural Design Professionals
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsAugust 3, 2020
Tim is a great design professional. He listens to his clients, hears the issue, and is able to create a solution. He is also very timely and aware of his client's financial and time concerns. Tim is also a very nice person, and relatable; I never felt like I was intruding on his time with a question about the status of the building permit, or the renovation of the house. I felt his cost was very competitive and that I received value with his work.
Marc Newman Architect
Berkeley, CA Architectural Design Professionals
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsMarch 14, 2021
I’m a general contractor and homeowner. I have worked together with Marc for over a year now. We are building our own family home. The house is three story new construction home in the Oakland hills. The project is extremely complicated due to several neighbors view rights and it’s just a difficult lot to build on in general, Marc has been instrumental in working with the city, my wife and I then also the neighbors to design a house that fits in well to the area, and has a positive outcome for all parties involved. Marc is very easy to work with, very responsive, detailed and creative. I will work with marc to finish our home, then hopefully in the future, on new projects. I would recommend marc to anyone that needs a good architect!
3 Lights Design
Berkeley, CA Architectural Design Professionals
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsMarch 7, 2016
I love working with 3 Lights Design! Everyone there is professional, knowledgeable, efficient, and super friendly. TANGERINEdesign is a Residential Design firm focusing on space planning and room layouts for remodels and additions for all kinds of homeowners. Since I'm a 1-woman show, working with over 90 homeowners a year, I don't have the time to deal with Permit process, and 3 Lights Design gives me the ability to serve my clients from Design to Construction. My clients appreciate the attention to detail in order to streamline the process, while keeping a budget in mind.

Mikiten Architecture
Berkeley, CA Architectural Design Professionals
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsAugust 30, 2014
We hired Erick Mikiten as the project architect for a major kitchen remodel and some ancillary work on the entrance porches to the house in 1994/95. We wanted to expand the kitchen, remodel the interior to include new cabinets and an island, provide a new seating area in an addition at the rear of the house, and improve what was then an awkward connection between the kitchen and a rear bedroom. Erick came up with a very creative solution to the space constraints in the existing kitchen that resulted in a much more spacious kitchen with a larger island than we had anticipated. The addition on the rear of the house not only provided a seating area with views into the rear garden that we use on a daily basis, but included a very attractive raised ceiling and exterior architecture that continue to receive admiring comments from friends and visitors almost 20 years later. Erick's firm also recommended a new color scheme for the exterior of the house, which we adopted. Even now, from time to time complete strangers stop by to ask about the specifications of the paint colors because they find it so attractive and are considering doing something similar. Throughout the project Erick made great efforts to understand what we were looking for and present alternative options to achieve this, going through multiple iterations of the design as we refined the concept together, then producing a final design that satisfied our budget constraints. During construction, Erick visited the site on a regular basis and worked closely with the contractor to make sure that the work was being done in conformance with the design.
