Featured Reviews for Grand Rapids, MI Architects and Building Designers

Corri Sandwick Architecture
Grand Rapids, MI Architects and Building Designers
Jul 14, 2017
“Corri is a professional on every level. I hired her to design a small home using principles of sustainability, functionality and feng shui design. With a small budget and big ideas I needed someone who understood me and could deliver in an organized and manageable way. I was not disappointed at any point in our process. I have not yet built the house but she has created my dream.”

“I can't say enough great things about our experience working with AZD on our dream home! This is NOT the only architect that we looked at and based on their creativity, personalities involved and the work they've done for us we definitely made the right choice. I also very much liked that they had a clear pricing model that was concise. Other architects that we met with in the area couldn't provide us with much clarity and only left us more confused on how much it might cost. Our house will be out here on Houzz at some point and you'll see why we're excited about the work they've done and their creativity....it's going to be a very cool house! My wife shares the same sentiment as I do with our AZD experience and how fun it's been and still is as we plan to break ground. I would recommend them to anyone looking for an enjoyable experience when planing a home whether traditional or modern. We actually found them by dumb luck as we were talking about building our dream home many years ago. We spent countless hours and weekends driving around looking at homes for years. There were four houses that we loved, although each very different, and we kept going back and looking at them. They were all many miles apart and in different cities in our metro area. Ironically, one went up for sale, and in the Realtor.com listing it said "designed by AZD". I had never heard of them but with a simple google search their site popped up and looking at their portfolio it was interesting to find that the four houses we loved were all designed by AZD. We still looked at other Architects just to be completely informed, and as I said above, we know for certain we made the right choice to go with AZD. Building a dream home is about the total experience...the right Architect makes a huge difference in that experience.”

“MMA designed our home - and it couldn't function better! Evan and the team were creative, listened to our needs, and made great use of a narrow lake lot. They were involved in every detail of the home, making the selection of the final finishes a breeze, and remained involved during the building process to ensure our dream became a reality.”

“Gifted home designer. Understands the role of sustainability in affordability and personalized function. Eric has set a new standard in home design, delivering LEED-Platinum certification at entry level through custom price points. My role as a third-party auditor for a variety of national performance building programs affords me a unique opportunity to see hundreds of architects, designers and builders. Eric Hughes stands out in a very crowded field.”

“Curt and the Team at Sketchpad were a pleasure to deal with starting Day 1. The 1st house we did turned out better than expected and is a huge hit on the vacation rental program. We have since done multiple projects and looking forward to many more!”

“Our experience with Lucid Architecture has been 100% spectacular from start to finish. Eric possesses every ideal quality a client would seek in an architect: honesty, intellect, ingenuity, and humor. He excels in the ability to take what is conceptual and transform it to actual. If there were 6 stars to allocate, we would do so for Lucid.”
Sears Architects
Grand Rapids, MI Architects and Building Designers
Nov 12, 2015
“Sears Architect designed a 3100 sq house for us in East Grand Rapids, MI. We have never built a home previously. We found the design process to be very efficient which resulted in a home that matches our needs and wants. The Sears project manager was very responsive and Rob Sears seemed to be full informed and involved at all times. Having said this there were many heartaches that occurred that could in part be mitigated with up front client education. In talking with another friend who build a house with Sears last year, our experience was similar to theirs. 1. Architectural costs - designing a custom build house is more expensive and has more components than one would expect. Multiple site surveys, structural engineers, each set of more detailed plans add to the final cost. We spent $xxxxx for plans - which were the refinement of a plan presented to us in a design build proposal by the builder. In addition we used an interior designer recommended by the architect another $xxxx. We would have been happier if we had a fixed predefined budget as the builder led us to believe the costs would be about $25,000. Having said this, Rob Sears was very responsive to financial questions and happily and promptly provided the billing records that justified their billings. In addition I felt Rob made a strong effort to follow the project to completion and did quite a bit after delivery of the plans, uncompensated, to finish the job. In the end we are very happy with Sears Architects - but wiser for the experience. 2. Cost of building. We learned that there was essentially no communication between our builder and the architect regarding the building allowances and the costs of the developed plan. Our home ended up xx% over budget, despite most components falling within allowances - the builder just underbid to get the work. What I learned from the process is that is not the architects job, rather the home owners sole responsibility, to verify all components are accuately costed prior to contracting a builder. 3. Interior designer. We did not expect how important the interior designer would be in implementing the design of the home - guiding interior and exterior materials, designing lighting schemes, plumbing, etc as well as planning for furniture layout. Sears recommended Christine DiMaria. We separately retained her. My wife and I thought she did a great job - design, providing perspective from other project, helping sort priorities, communicating with the architect and in general holding our hands through the up and downs of the 10 month process. We were glad we used a designer who had worked with the architect before. 4. Landscape design. This was a separate contract and budget through a landscape architect. Sears coordinated well re the placement of the house on the lot, grade decisions needed so proper retention walls could be planned and built by the Landscape team. So overall, I feel that Sears Architecture is a terrific firm that does good work. We are very happy with the completed product of our home. We would recommend them to other home buyers.”
B-Squared Design Studio
Grand Rapids, MI Architects and Building Designers
Jan 6, 2014
“Our kitchen was trapped in the 1970's, and there did not seem to be an easy way to bring it into the present. Brenda walked us through the design process with ease. She has a wealth of ideas, and steered us towards likewise-creative professionals to help with each aspect of the project. She is a design genius - taking careful note of what we liked, where we wanted to end up, and found such a creative way to get us a kitchen better than we ever could have envisioned. We love our new kitchen! It is exactly what we wanted, and is the perfect blend of function and fun. She has also helped design our adjoining family room space, giving us a new dining area. Hiring Brenda from B-Squared Design Studio was one of the best decisions we made for our project. We would recommend her to anyone wanting to breathe new life into their home.”
J Visser Design

“Jeff Visser is an extremely skilled and talented residential designer. He has an amazing eye for detail, scale, and proportion. His home flow well and have tremendous character and charm. I think that anyone that meets him and see's his work, will understand why he is one of the top designers in West Michigan and will want to work with him. I highly recommend J. Visser Design and will continue to enjoy building his homes.”
