Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Los Angeles, CA

bunchADU
Architects and Building Designers in Los Angeles, CA
19 Apr 2019
“I had the extreme pleasure of renting the Step ADU design in Highland Park. Not only is this apartment located in the heart of Highland Park, a block from York, by great restaurants and shops, it is also one of the most unique and inspiring spaces I've lived in to date. The design makes the space seem big, but cozy at the same time. It has high step ceilings and a large yellow door inside, taller than I've ever seen. The splashes of color reflect throughout the rooms differently as the daylight changes. The space simultaneously feels like a piece of artwork and a home. As a creative professional, it's important that your space reflects your values. This space is entirely dynamic with living flexibility, good entertaining space and a creative and inspiring air throughout the unit. If I were a painter, I would want to paint in this space. It is an incredible place to call home.”

“John has done 2 major projects for me. All with professional and very satisfactory results. The loft addition was a major project that involved staircase, and major renovation of 4 rooms of the house . with very satisfactory results. The second was a 3rd garage addition and concrete slab. Also totally satisfied with the results. Both projects look as if the house was built with the additions.”
Paul Davis Architects

“Paul Davis architects literally created a design for my condo that has truly become my dream house. Not only is my home a piece of art, but the functionality is completely in sync with my lifestyle. As anticipated, there were surprises and problems in construction, but Davis and his associates worked closely and diligently with McCraw, the contractor during the entire process, in making adjustments such that the project became a relative piece of cake. Friends coming over almost universaly mention the obvious "detail" in the design and unique functionality of my home. I am more than pleased with my selection with PDA and would truly give them an unqualified recomendation to someone who wants that "special home"”
Spazio LA
Architects and Building Designers in Los Angeles, CA
13 Nov 2014
“After purchasing our new home we wanted to modernize the house since it was still stuck in the in the 50's. We did not know where to start and after a lot of research we were referred to Spazio La by a friend that did their entire house with them. We didn't know what to expect, after 10 minutes of our first meeting I was in love with their ideas and suggestions to improve the layout and finishes of our new kitchen, master bathroom and guest bathroom. They were very professional and spent almost 4 hours with us showing us their beautiful designs and projects from previous clients. We decided to hire them and we are so happy that we did. They came up with an amazing 3D concept design for each space that we wanted to remodel. They managed the project from the contractor to the finish materials and with the final decoration of the home. Our house looks amazing and our kitchen is, now, huge and has an island to die for. They recommended a Calcutta quartz material that makes the kitchen look like a showpiece from a designer showroom. Our master bathroom is like a high end spa at a five star hotel. We are really thankful to the team from Spazio La for making our home an amazing place for our family.”
Laidlaw Schultz architects
Architects and Building Designers in Los Angeles, CA
10 Nov 2015
“Having seen their work, we knew our Pacific Modern remodel would be best served by Laidlaw/Shultz Architects; always unique, never fussy or contrived. After interviewing & sharing some overview design concepts, we began. Never did they compromise the character of the house, the integrity of the design or our desired nuances. The cohesive feeling of free, fresh & flow are adjectives many have used. Visitors who didn't think they liked "Modern" were surprised by the homes overall feeling of warmth, balance of elements in chosen materials. An int'l real estate broker recently said, "Do you know HOW many houses I've seen? Do you know how many I could move into without changing them? This is the first!" Building was a lifetime dream for us. LSA patiently worked in a collaborative way, remained professional on all levels without ever being dismissive. Happy to listen happy to guide, helping us through the rough patches. As my conservative husband says, "Sometimes a project is worth it - this was one of those." To come through an extensive remodel & loving every detail years later is our dream come true. I do not know how to attach photos, but many people have told me they've seen our home on your site.”

“We hired Ottolia & Barnes to provide plans for to renovate our home. They worked well with the other team members (contractor, engineer and designer) on efficiently completing the project. They really listened to our desires and helped us develop a terrific plan for the renovation. We are very happy with the outcome.”

“Mary K took care of our project from the first drawings to completion. She meticulously identified our desires regarding style and layout and was able to make preliminary drawings when our architect just couldn't understand what we wanted. She worked as our advocate with the builder and when he made mistakes she ensured they were corrected. When the builder had ideas that got away from our initial concept, she kept him on track. Her choices of colors, appliances, accessories, and furnishings were a perfect reflection of our tastes. Thanks to Mary K, we are completely happy and comfortable in our completed home.”
MGS Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Los Angeles, CA
12 Feb 2013
“I commissioned Magdalena to design a piece of exhibition furniture that would serve as a display case would include areas where visitors could sit. The exhibition focused on Frank Lloyd Wright and the Japanese print. Wright, an avid collector of Japanese prints had curated several exhibitions in the early twentieth century at the Chicago Art Institute which included benches and pedestals that he had designed specifically for the shows. So, I was looking for an important element for our exhibition -- a work of art itself -- that would capture some of Wright's design aesthetic. I was thrilled with Magdalena's design. I also appreciated all the time she gave to convey her ideas to the cabinet builder who realized her ideas. I sought Magdalena's advice on another exhibition element in 2012. She gave crucial input regarding the design, structure, and placement of a viewing platform which allowed visitors to get a new perspective on a large-scale floor installation. Again, Magdalena's courtesy, creativity, and insights were incredibly appreciated. She has an amazing sensitivity to each project and gets to the core of it sometimes before I can even express it in words.”
J. Kretschmer Architect: Art & Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Los Angeles, CA
3 Jan 2014
“Jennifer is an incredibly talented creative architect, but is unusually capable in the painful practical aspects of remodeling. She knows how to talk to contractors, deal with city permit processes, work with artistic kitchen designers, come up with creative solutions to seemingly impossible problems, and make sure you have what you need and want -- and things you didn't even know would be problems. We interviewed many architects for a difficult, challenging remodel, and she was heads above the others. She helped us deal with the countless inevitable problems that come up in remodeling, worked closely with the contractor, and saw the project through to completion. I can't imagine ever working with another architect, she's exceptional in all aspects.”
