Brandon Architects, Inc.
Architects & Building Designers in Westminster, CA
"I am a local builder in Corona Del Mar, CA. I have watched and admired the many homes Brandon Architects has designed in the area. It did not take me long to realize this firm had many talents. By the time my next project came along, I made sure I would consult with this firm first. From their initial presentation to the drawings and site visits, I have been nothing but impressed. Chris and his team have proved to me they have talent, creativity and professionalism. My project is currently just past the framing stage, and Chris and his team visit my site frequently. Each time they prove to me they are there to assist and support me all the way to completion. I look forward to working with Brandon Architects for years to come.

Jeannette Architects
Architects & Building Designers in Westminster, CA
"My wife and I hired Jeannette Architects to assist us with a major remodel (interior/exterior) of our 3,500 sq. ft. ranch style home in Newport Beach. The task: incorporate warm contemporary design into our 1970's "woody cabin." As a real estate developer and because it's our third major house remodel there were many design elements we knew we wanted but many more that we needed help with. As capable as Jeff (Jeannette) is with his design sense, we believe that it's his ability to listen to his clients, understand client goals, how we will live in the space and how that fits into our budget is what sets Jeff apart from other architects. The Jeannette team met aggressive time constraints, produced a thorough set of construction documents, were always quick to provide clarification and answers to our questions and were great resources for product and material options and information. True professionals that we would use again and confidently refer to others. Our project is nearing completion and I can't wait to share photos."

Anders Lasater Architects
Architects & Building Designers in Westminster, CA
"We were in the market for several years for a house in Laguna Beach before we found the one we wanted. During that search, we heard many hair-raising stories about how difficult it can be to remodel in Laguna, so we decided to use a local architect and were referred to Anders Lasater. Turned out to be a great referral, because Anders and his staff not only helped us navigate the labyrinthian planning department process, they also provided us with a wealth of information about what works and what doesn't in Laguna. The remodel turned out to be much more complicated than expected because of numerous elevation changes on the property. They stayed with the project from start to finish, dropping in on short notice when we needed input. We asked for several large modifications along the way and those were handled with patience, care and creative suggestions. Anders himself went to speak with neighbors when they raised concerns and was a partner in the whole process."

How do I find the best Westminster, 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 Westminster, 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 Westminster, 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, Westminster, 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.

Questions to ask prospective Westminster, CA architects:

  • What types of renderings (3D, video, illustrative) will you produce?
  • Who will be working on my project? (This is very important if you hire an architectural firm)
  • What is your fee structure?
  • What does the cost include?
  • Can you handle my special requests?
  • What is your experience with similar projects/ architectural design and style?
  • When do you expect to start and be finished with the project?
  • What do your services include? (It's best that the services are until construction is completed.)
  • 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.)
  • Will you help with hiring a general contractor and other subcontractors?
  • What do you estimate the cost will be?
  • Are there any complications you foresee with this project?
  • What will I need to provide?
