Efficient and friendly. Worked with us to meet our deadlines and did not overcharge us for his work.

Empower Infrastructure
5.0
AJ was a miracle worker. I had gone to two other companies and they did not understand what I wanted. AJ designed my store and helped me get the permit for opening. We opened on time. Empower Infrastructure's fees were reasonable and their staff was amazing and profession. If you are looking for design services, hire Empower Infrastructure.

Sitra came out to measure and turned around the 4 drawings for my deck permit in 7 days. She spoke with my deck installer to answer his questions. I would highly recommend Zign Consulting.

Another Angle Design Services

We loved working with Sandhya. She had some excellent ideas that we hadn’t thought of. She also listened really well to our wants and needs, even if they were not the norm. Overall, it was a great experience and we would definitely work with her again.

STUDIO ONE ARCHITECTS
5.0
He has worked in this area for at least 35 years and just knows the history and topography. He understand and knows all the county rules and regulations off the top of his head so there is no delay that part of the job. He is easy to talk to and gets this done in a timely manner. He has a broad knowledge of style and design that helped with my job. I continue to work with him through small jobs around my home.

SHARON WASHBURN ARCHITECT PC
5.0
She has her own company, and doesn't work for somebody else. She has done the most wonderful designs for my house going back 20 years. We have done 3 renovations for her for additions and they have all been great. I recommended her to friends and neighbors and they have been very satisfied. She is personal, she will give you suggestions and then work with what you want to do. She helps solve all kinds of interesting construction problems in older homes. She is great. She helps find you the contractor, you don't have to use them, you can use who you want. She is always able to find the right people for the job.

Red House Architects

Excellent architecture design. Multiple other professionals have commented on attention to detail and quality of architecture and design

Thomas French Architect PC
5.0
I knew him professionally before I used him personally. He has attention to detail, he is organized, he is proficient, he meets deadlines, and he is exceedingly willing and helpful when working with clients. He is the principal at the firm but there are three other architects there and they are a reflection of the owner. I have recommended them to friends and coworkers any time someone asks for an architect.
- John B....

CLINT GOOD ARCHITECTS
1.0
It didn't go well. Sent Clint a list of all the things we wanted him to incorporate into our drawing as someone else had already designed the screened in porch (4 season room), such as curved stairs, bar top, small deck for grill. The only thing we needed help with was where to place the stairs and how to curve them. We sent drawings and internet photos on curved stair ideas. Instead the stairs in the final drawing looked almost identical to the original drawing that the first contractor drew (i.e. straight/then flared not curved). He drew them again (curved as requested) but landed them in an existing flower bed which we didn't want to have to incur an additional cost to redo the hardscaping/landscaping to accommodate the landing (the landing only needed to be extended by a few feet (if that)). His drawing was also missing the door that leads inside the house, and he missed several other details that were requested multiple times via written emails. His contract is very vague about how many revisions he will do and what constitutes a revision. His ideas, which weren't what we asked for (i.e. straight stairs, flared stairs, deck cutouts, etc) , used up our 2 revisions and we were left with a design that we didn't like. He wanted to charge us an additional amount of money to make the simple changes we requested (for example, include the existing door that goes from the porch into the morning room). These are all CAD drawings nothing drawn by hand. We now have to provide the contractors with penciled markings on top of the drawings to depict what we had asked for. Very dissatisfied and wouldn't recommend him.
- Kelly N....
FRANK DEICHMEISTER ARCHITECTS
5.0
Frank is a great guy and is wonderful. He is responsive and has great ideas. He listens very patiently to my perspective on the project. He has been doing work for me and is still doing work for me.
- Jared P....
The Levine Group Architects + Builders Inc
4.0
We only used the architect and we were fairly satisfied. In the end we did not use them for the build because we thought they were costly. They took their time and seemed to know their stuff. In the end the cost estimate they gave us based on the design was relatively high compared to the others. They were creative, but not as creative as other. They were professional and courteous. It was really just the architect and the general contractor. I thought they were well versed in what they needed to know. They seemed very aware of what you would want architects to know and to be aware of.
- Dennis T....
ARCADIA DESIGN INC
2.0
We'd hired architects before and thought we did our homework, but after contracting with Arcadia, we grew increasingly dissatisfied. The house kept growing in size and cost despite our protests. No matter the budget, an architect should be able to realize your wishes in a practical, economical way, not to persuade the client to accept his plans because they work for him. We were told we could either accept the plans or go elsewhere, forfeiting all we'd paid and time lost. We did so because we otherwise would have had to live in a house we didn't want. Before hiring an architect, ask LOTS of questions and insist on doing things your way. You, not the architect, will pay for, and live in, the finished product. Try to avoid the typical contract in which the architect is paid a percentage of the final cost, which incentivizes the architect to increase costs rather than save the client money.
- Helene M....
AHMANN LLC Architectural Services
5.0
Tom Ahmann was very professional. He gave a professional and impressive presentation from his portfolio. He displayed detailed knowledge of DC zoning, permitting and building code requirements. Offered interesting and useful comments on our ideas and new ideas of his own. He educated us about the design, permitting and construction process. Tom was readily available to meet with us, accommodated our schedule, followed up on a timely basis, and submitted his proposal quickly following the initial consultation. We noted the comment about higher pricing than other architects in another Angie's List entry. That was NOT our experience. When compared on an apples to apples basis, Tom's proposal was consistent with the other architects we considered. Ahmann's hourly rates were the same as competitors. Ahmann's scope of work included in base services was broader than competitors. When the scopes of work were made consistent, the projected cost for architectural services was about the same. We very seriously considered Ahmann Architects, but ultimately chose another architect-NOT on the basis of qualifications, but rather on the basis of taste. The other architect's qualifications were comparable(perhaps even slightly less)than Ahmann's, but the other architect's portfolio of work better mirrored our personal architectural tastes. We would strongly recommend considering Ahmann Architects for residential architectural work of the sort we are undertaking.
- Robert M....
NAWROCKI ARCHITECTS
3.0
They did some very nice designs, but Nawrocki really did not seem to grasp the essence of what we were looking for. They did quite a few detailed options, but did not make sure this was the direction we wanted to go. In the end it cost us more money for drawings that did not capture the essence we wanted and it was very frustrating. I felt like the drawings were done just to bring in money, not help with decisions. We decided to go with an architect that understood we were not looking for such a and quot;grandand quot; addition. The new architect also provided some basic drawings without all the needless detail you need when just trying to determine a layout of a bedroom suite. It was a costly mistake to learn this was not the architect for our house/needs. Also, while visiting our house to discuss options for the bedroom and an overall revamp of the house, for which they were paid, there were questions the architect could easily have answered had they simply climbed into the attick to answer, but did not. These architects would be better suited for million dollar homes, not the average home owner.

TALAAT ARCHITECTS
5.0
SHORIEH TALAAT (OWNER/ARCHITECT)AND HIS COLLEAGUE (ARCHITECT) ADRIANNA WERE PROFESSIONAL. THEIR DESIGNS AND WORK PRODUCTS WERE OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY. IT WAS TRULY A PLEASURE TO WORK WITH THEM. THEY GUIDED US THROUGH A SMOOTH CREATIVE PROCESS. THEY WERE ATTENTIVE TO OUR BUDGET AND RESPONSIVE TO OUR NEEDS. THEY WENT THROUGH SEVERAL ROUNDS OF DRAWINGS AND PRESENTED OPTIONS FOR OUR CONSIDERATION. THEY PROVIDED DETAILED SPECIFICATIONS FOR ITEMS SUCH AS THE REFRIGERATOR, AND THE SINK ERRATOR SO THAT WE DIDN'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT ORDERING AN APPLIANCE THAT WOULDN'T FIT IN THE SPACE. OUR RENOVATION INCLUDED KNOCKING DOWN A LOAD BEARING WALL, OPENING EXTERIOR WALLS TO CREATE FRENCH DOORS, KNOCKING DOWN WALLS BETWEEN LIVING ROOM AND KITCHEN AND BEDROOMS TO CREATE ONE 'GREAT ROOM' AND TO LET THE LIGHT IN. THE RESULTS HAVE EXCEEDED EVERY EXPECTATION. WE ARE SO GLAD WE USED AN ARCHITECT. WE ENJOYED THE PROCESS AND WE ARE PLEASED WITH THE RESULTS THANKS TO TALAAT ARCHITECTS.

I love this firm's work and concept. Woman-owned and the work done by women. I am a wheelchair user and feel as though the architects really understood universal design.

Ballard & Mensua Architecture
5.0
After months of researching on potential architects and interviewing a few, I hired Seth to undertake a major expansion/renovation of my house. I couldn't be happier with the results. The best decision that I made for my project was to hire him as the architect and project manager. He is great architect and an excellent project manager. Seth put his personal touch on my house but let my style and preferences shine. He also did an excellent job handling the builder, any issue that emerge during construction, and making sure that I made informed decisions about the budget. The craftsmanship of my house is great. That was Seth's work on helping me to choose the builder and undertaking a hands on supervision approach. If you are looking an architect that can help you to do top quality reno in which you want to imprint your style, Seth is sure bet. I also like his direct and honest approach to handle issues that emerged. Seth made a potentially stressful project to go easy in terms making sure that the right decision were being made to have a solid and beautiful renovation. If I had to do the project again, I would hire Seth in a heart bit.
