It was great; designs came in from around the world. Our kids loved the process. The Arcbazar staff was typically very responsive and the process went pretty smoothly, even though it takes some serious preparation to get the competition going.

Mr and Mrs H.

A friend suggested we use this sight to get ideas for our basement buildout (previously unfinished). With a few hand drawings and some pictures we posted our and quot;contestand quot; and received 11 submissions (13 if you count 2 architects submitted twice). Went great, had good dialogue with the architects and helped us come up with the direction we want to go.We really liked it because when you work with just one designer, you get their and quot;oneand quot; idea, this way we got 11 ideas, all for a fairly low cost.

Description of Work
The provider gave us 11 designs for our basement build out. Included were 3 dimensional drawings, furniture and color selections.

Mr. and Mrs. [Member Name Removed], thank you for your review. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed the competition process and were able to get great design ideas.


Kate B.

While the design did not stay the same as the one I selected, it was a springboard for my designer and contractor to give me the master bathroom that I had been hoping for! I LOVED it. I would use this service again if I needed help with design work. It decreased the number of billable design hours for the project.

Description of Work
Provided 3 designs based on my specs for master bathroom redesigns. I picke the one that worked the best and was able to download sketches to use in the execution of the design.

[Member Name Removed], We are so glad to hear that you love your new master bathroom! So glad that we could be a part of the process.
