I have known Marcos for something over a year and have had multiple opportunities to see him up close and personal as well as be exposed to his work product. He is a genuinely nice person to just hang around with and smart as a whip. He likes to probe deeply into any issue before him, and doesn't mind getting directly to the point. The drawings, renderings, 3-dimensional online models, and actual hand built models are fascinating to me and seem to be well executed. As an author of books on retailing, the retail store layouts are excellent. Overall, designs of buildings, homes, stores, are going to be a matter of taste. For my taste, Marcos creates beautiful and functional structures.

in the process of choosing an Architect to design our 10,000 SF Dream home on a hill side, we researched multiple Architectural firms and met five of them, after meeting with Edward from Neo and Associates it became clear to us that he is the right choice and we hired him for the job. Our first meeting with Edward and his team was to provide what we want in our house, they were very expert, knowledgeable and patient which made it easier for us to explain what we have in mind, Edward took our requests put it in a few design concept and presented it to us. During the design process Edward and his team were very responsive, always took our phone calls, responded to our emails and made any changes to plans very quickly. Their expert team provided us with many 3D views and VRs (Virtual Reality) of our new home to help us see how the house looks like on the outside and inside. Designing a large hose on a steep hill side is a very challenging task and the city was very strict, Neo and Associates was the right firm for this project. I want to add that Edward and his team have been very friendly, very easy to communicate with and made this process very enjoyable.

So I decided to do something different today and review one of our long-term clients, BDG. Our studio is the unseen production house for many companies in different industries coast to coast. We've worked both directly (State of California CalFire, City of Nanjing, China) and indirectly (AECOM, Ensign Energy, Marathon Energy) for some big names in business. We do white-label architectural production not only for US-based developments, but also a few in Toronto, Canada; Jeddah, Saudi Arabia; Nanjing, China, and even Barbados. Every business has a few most favorite, most cherished clients and ours is BDG, led by the California designer Kim Bauer. We have now done a good number of spec homes for Kim's studio in 3D space, usually animated. But on Kim's initiative, we've taken our work from the usual 3D animations into the interactive virtual reality space, where project owners with Occulus Rift-type equipment can explore their future homes and interactively try out different furniture and materials. I didn't even know there were so many before working with her team. Coming from the more "corporate" developers, we work with a pretty mainstream palette you find in large healthcare or institutional developments. But with Kim, I learned about some of the most unusual, quirky and uncommon types of stone and fabric. I don't even know where she finds them. Now I have to admit, the amount of materials and furniture pieces Kim has us try, or getting every little minute detail just perfectly right is more than our usual clients. But Kim is a unique home designer and personally, it's just plain interesting to see the next cool design being built somewhere. She also has a quick architect so working with them is both creative and productive. So now you know... we balance out our mainstream work with Kim's creative and crazily detailed designs. I'm glad we found her.
OCTOBER 5 Fine Home Builders

Our extraordinary custom home, designed and reconstructed by October 5 Fine Home Builders is undeniably a work of art. October 5 offers superior design and execution, where form and function converge. Ryan, the project superintendent, attends to every detail with an eye for quality and perfection. Their open-floor plan design blurs the lines between indoor and outdoor spaces, light abounds in every room, yet the space remains purposely private and intimate. Originally constructed in 1953, our home had not undergone any remodeling or updating. During construction, the house was all but demolished - leaving only the rough framing and portions of the exterior stucco and siding. Earthquake updates, 200 amp electrical service, beefed-up insulation, plumbing, heating and air-conditioning, smooth drywall, wide-plank flooring, bathrooms, kitchen, and dual-glazed windows supported the bulk of the project, which lasted 4 ½ months. With clean contemporary lines, the modern floor plan, great for entertaining, offers a celebrated life-style. What a beautiful and relaxing way to enjoy life! We say, “Call October 5 to celebrate your next project.”
Spaces Renewed

Renovation/Remodeling depending on the size of its scope, can be very stressful. The varying personalities between the builder and client can certainly add to the frustrations during the process. After all, it is your home and the cost involved could be enough to expect some rough moments. There were rough moments, but I couldn’t have picked a better team with Beth and Marshall Booth and their crew, of Spaces Renewed to deal with them. Our impression of Spaces Renewed team were consistent throughout the project; straight forward, honest, and “do it right” kind of company. They did not try to up-sell us but gave us the control to reinterpret some of the designs ourselves. Spaces Renewed accommodated our changes willingly and patiently, while still insisted and made sure we were building code compliant. They walked us through CAD drawings in their design center, showing our home layouts to fully visualize the project, which really got us very excited. Being able to visually see the entire scope of the project, and being able to work with Beth and Marshall on modifying certain spaces, eased a lot of our uncertainties and doubts. We started out with a home that was full to the brim of random furniture and stuff accumulated over 40 years by the previous owners. I felt comfortable with the crew and definitely felt they were trustworthy. They pointed out valuable things in the house we did not know about and advised us to handle and secure them ourselves. We commend Spaces Renewed for what they had to plow through and work around. They simply worked with us patiently and even helped us with a lot of things outside of their business scope in order to help us complete the project. Needless to say their ability to meet the deadline, not that we had one, was hindered by our own personal matters and to no fault of theirs. They had great and efficient budgeting systems set, but of course our own preferences and changes added to the cost. But ultimately, the results and their work quality made it all worth it. Our impression of Beth and Marshall of Spaces Renewed is that they run an honest business. They are straight forward, and did no sales pitching and up-selling. They initially work within the box to ensure code compliance and job done right, but provided a lot of flexibility to have our vision of the project come to fruition. We learned a lot from the experience as far as how to handle ourselves during the process, relate and work with the builder, and with dealing with the entire renovation. And that, can only happen if you have the right company that works with you. We would do it all over again with Beth and Marshall Booth of Spaces Renewed.

Working with Vision2Home has been nothing but awesome. They're always available when I've needed to get in touch with them and when that isn't the case, they're always quick to follow up. The projects we've worked on together so far, it's always felt like a team effort where everyone involved gets to voice their opinion and is taken into account for whatever the respective issue may be. I'm looking forward to the final results as well as moving forward in our ongoing relationship. Thanks everyone! :)

I grew up with a father who is a master contractor. In my adult life, I have been involved in countless home renovations, so I've always thought architects are a waste of time & money. They always seem to be writing checks with the customers' money, and have no basis in reality or practicality: they seem so frivolous. Hubby and I bought a mid-century modern home that had been turned into a tuscan style by the previous owners. (can you imagine?) We needed help getting approval from the local city planning board who are a NIGHTMARE to deal with (average of 8-10 plan checks, most cities do 2-3!?) We hired Glen with EZPlans to help us. Glen handled acrimonious city officials, seeming design impossibilities (and even a few vastly different design ideas between hubby and I) with tact, professionalism, and good humor. Dealing with EZ Plans was a breeze. I am so impressed with their vision, their professionalism, and the very talented, creative (and practical) architects they hire. They are exceptional communicators, and are as intuitive as they are talented. EZ Plans turned a simple contractor grade design we could have come up with ourselves, to a design that respected the mid-century bones of our home, and brought it to the practical standards we needed the home to suit. The design they came up with easily increased the value of our renovation tenfold. the only direction they had from me was "I want to respect the home's bones with materials in their natural element, nothing frivolous, but we need the house to be super specialized for our dogs." (maybe that's a bit frivolous....) They took this and ran with it. Incidentally, they are AVID dog lovers (almost as nutty as hubby and I are, ) so they came up with such cool suggestions that will make our old dogs' lives (and our lives) easier. As someone who has scoffed at the need for an architect, (come on, my dad is a contractor!) I can assure anyone: the design of a talented architect is worlds apart from what a contractor, or even designer, could come up with. They take things to another level. Glen increased the value of the renovation by making the design in line with architectural design elements, not current trends that would be outdated quickly after installation. More importantly, they made changes to the home to fit OUR lifestyle and needs, instead of us changing our needs and lifestyles to accommodate the home. This is the difference: architects build homes, contractors build houses. Hubby and I are so pleased with our experience at EZPlans. They make incredible planning, design and architecture...easy. :)

I was the engineer in charge of the structural design on a few projects with Lampert-Dias Architects in the past year. It was a pleasure working with them. They are knowledgeable about structural needs and know how to integrate their architectural design to accommodate the structural in an efficient way. This is a great asset specially when doing house remodels. It saves the clients time and money.

Jason is a talented architect! He’s easy going and in our first meeting we knew he understood our style and home needs. He has great creative insight and suggestions and is very budget conscious. He translated our “vision” to paper beautifully! Jason was available to us whenever we needed, which was a lot in the beginning. He executed our plans completely and in a very timely manner. We really enjoy working with Jason and are excited to move into our family dream Home! We would highly recommend him for any of your architectural needs. All the best,Kim Cancellieri

Merissa does a great job really getting to know her clients. As someone who has worked with her and a few of her clients I am amazed by the diversity of her design strengths. A lot of designers and architects will simply give their clients/homeowners a list of where to go to find interior details but Merissa has actually travelled around the city with her clients to help them specify materials. She is educated, funny and talented which makes her a champion to have on your team!
