Featured Reviews for Architects & Building Designers in Santa Clarita, CA
NS Designs
Architects & Building Designers in Santa Clarita, CA
"Nathan and I did some work together when I was out on the west coast for some time. Working with him was awesome. He carries himself very well and is a really friendly and intelligent guy. He's very dedicated to his business and takes joy in showing people that their visions can be transformed into reality. After spending some time with him it's become quite clear that when it comes to this industry, he does it because he loves it. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to transform their home or their space."

Burdge & Associates Architects
Architects & Building Designers in Santa Clarita, CA
"I highly recommend Doug and his team. After working with two architects, we hired him since we heard he is an expert in obtaining permits in Malibu. The process was so seamless and we appreciate Doug’s professionalism. We love our new beach house!"

Interior Archaeology
Architects & Building Designers in Santa Clarita, CA
"Tammy and I have been working together for over 15 years, and it has been an absolute pleasure. Her design aesthetic is beautiful and purposeful, but unlike many designers who seek to impose their personal tastes on every project, she ensures that each project reflects the taste and inclinations of her clients as well, albeit executed professionally and with her extraordinary eye to detail. Her firm is truly a treasure. I recommend Interior Archaeology wholeheartedly!!!"

Hsu McCullough
Architects & Building Designers in Santa Clarita, CA
"Chris and Peggy are the perfect team to build your dream house. They turned our traditional styled home into an amazing modern home without gutting out the entire house. I loved how extremely detailed and meticulous they were in designing every corner of the house and guiding our contractor along the process. Extremely professional and passionate about their work which reflects in the home I live now. People are constantly "wowed" by our house."

Dutton Architects Inc.
Architects & Building Designers in Santa Clarita, CA
"We are nearing the end of a remodel/addition for which we hired Dutton Architects. Through permitting difficulties and modification reviews they were there every step of the way. From structural issues to the smallest of details there was always an open line of communication. They were always available to answer our questions and address our concerns anytime - even for a second or third time. Construction is a trying time for any family and working with a team sympathetic to that was so helpful. People literally slow down to look at our project as they are driving by. It is so uniquely ours. So happy to have hired them."

SUBU Design Architecture
Architects & Building Designers in Santa Clarita, CA
"May Sung is a very talented architect with a very realistic approach and a keen eye for detail. She is a humble individual with Ivy League credentials. May graduated from Harvard ..... which she will never brags about; so I will..... She has a fantastic sense of humor but takes her work very seriously . May will not compromise on delivery and demands the best from every one on the project. That is probably the best part of her accomplishments. She delivers a great product. Any one who has had the pleasure to work with her knows this about her. I would not hesitate hiring SUBU; you won't be disappointed if you do. May is a gem. She was very instrumental in making our project a huge success. Their work is an extension of who they are and in the end they became a part of us. At the beginning of the project all the way through, they treated us like we are family and listened to our needs. I feel lucky to have had the experience of working with their ethos and in being part of a team creating a beautiful home. In the end I do consider them family and admire their abilities . It was a fantastic experience. I highly recommend them."

How do I find the best Santa Clarita, CA architect for my home design or renovation project?


When building or renovating your home, you don't simply hire an architect or building designer — you build a relationship with them. Be sure you chose a home architect who will be involved in all phases of the design process, from the initial concept to the completed construction. Architecture is an incredibly technical profession and one where getting things wrong can literally put lives at risk, so ensure you hire a professional with a valid license or an architectural firm to maintain high quality and standards. Your next consideration will be architectural style. Some residential architects specialise in designing traditional homes or farmhouses, others in designing modern replicas of traditional homes. While a few have a knack for imagining bolder, more futuristic architectural design in Santa Clarita, CA that incorporates the latest technology.

Once you have frozen on the architect or building designer, chat through your goals, projected budget, scope of work, schedule and any other specific requirements you might have. Ask them to walk you through the process, including the number of architectural design consultations, site visits and what they will be delivering and when, e.g. feasibility study, a technical drawing, tender package and/or planning application drawings. Also, get a sense of whether they are a good listener, collaborator, and problem solver. Finally, be sure to find out what the architect needs from you,deeds, rights of way, deposit, staged payments and so on.

How much does hiring an architect in Santa Clarita, CA cost?


Home construction and renovation often have a preset budget and hence it is important to understand how much architects charge. While there is no set payment structure, independent architects may charge differently from architectural firms. Architects sometimes choose to calculate their fees on the basis of a per square foot rate. In rare cases, especially with smaller projects, Santa Clarita, CA architects may choose to ask their clients for a fixed fee. Make sure the total figure and payment schedule is agreed as part of your contract, particularly if you are trying to accurately estimate the cost of building a house.

  • Can you handle my special requests?
  • What is your experience with similar projects/ architectural design and style?

  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Would you say your work has a defining style? (This is important in case the architect's personal style will interfere with your vision.)
