Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Philadelphia, PA

Archer & Buchanan Architecture, Ltd.
Architects and Building Designers in Philadelphia, PA
26 October 2012
"Archer and Buchanan drew up the architectural plans to renovate and build an extension to a Pennsylvania farmhouse. They collaborated throughout the project with the builders. They offered expertise in maintaining historic features whilst modernizing the property. The outcome was just what we wanted. It was a great experience."
Gardner/Fox Associates, Inc
Architects and Building Designers in Philadelphia, PA
11 December 2012
"We at Sterling Kitchen & Bath love being a preferred vendor with Gardner/Fox! We work well together to create beautiful dream kitchens (and baths!) for our clients. They pay attention to the client's wants and needs, and even the smallest detail is important! The end result is always beautiful when working with Gardner/Fox Associates, Inc!"
Period Architecture Ltd.
Architects and Building Designers in Philadelphia, PA
29 November 2012
"Joe Mackin and his firm designed us the most beautiful new house. He designed an 1800's style, stone farm house look that is amazing. The attention to detail is incredible. People have been to the house and can't decide if it's just an old house that was added on to, or a new house. We have worked with a handful of architects over the years, and Joe, by far, has been the BEST. We also did not use a builder, my husband an were the general contractors of the house, which is approximately 7,000 sq. feet."
Peter Zimmerman Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Philadelphia, PA
21 January 2013
"We have known Peter Zimmerman for many years both professionally and personally and his organization could not be more professional nor do a better job. They are imaginative and responsive to all of their customers needs, Their designs are fresh but at the same time sensitive to the surroundings and the clients wishes."
Karen Beam Architect LLC
Architects and Building Designers in Philadelphia, PA
29 June 2012
"We hired Karen to design plans for an addition and renovations to our home. She was wonderful to work with and really understood what we wanted to add/change in our home. We would highly recommend Karen!"
Rasmussen / Su Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Philadelphia, PA
15 March 2013
"We had a wonderful experience working with Rasmussen/Su on a kitchen renovation. Our home was built in 1879, and it had a cramped and dark kitchen. Kevin & Vivian really listened to what mattered to us (having a space that works for an active family and opens the kitchen up to the rest of the first floor) and they were able to incorporate those things into the design. They have experience with historic homes and local regulations and took care of the arduous permit process. They were there during construction when we ran into the unexpected things you discover in an old house. They also helped with the design details and decisions you have to make during a project. We now have an amazing space where everyone gathers to cook, do homework, and just be together."
Bishop and Smith Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Philadelphia, PA
18 September 2014
"We are very pleased with the result of more than a year's work, starting with pen and paper and a discussion on what we needed in a home, reviewing and editing floor plans, getting to plot plans, elevation views, and ultimately a final set of plans. This was no easy task, considering we were building a new home post-Sandy, at the Jersey Shore, and with flood maps changing during the process, being in dual zoning districts, and with required building heights uncertain. But, finally, we are done (mostly!) Scott, Jack and Bill were all great to deal with, they listened to our needs and wants, and helped us make decisions on the trade-offs you always need to consider when space is limited on the lot and you have a long list of needs and wants. The style of the house is a cape cod, the architectural detail is outstanding and it fits well into the existing neighborhood which is situated one block from the start of the historic district here in Ocean City. Ultimately, we love the house and get compliments on it every single day from strangers walking past and from family and friends who are visiting. So many people have asked us if they can have a tour. Thanks Scott, Jack and Bill for everything."
Wyant Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Philadelphia, PA
6 February 2014
"Wyant Architecture created beautiful and enriching living spaces for our family. We have worked with Jeff and Maria on many projects in our Philadelphia townhouse (circa 1876) ranging from straightforward renovations of existing bathrooms, to a kitchen renovation which involved moving walls and opening up sight lines, to a very complex addition. Jeff and Maria have an outstanding design sense retaining older features and incorporating contemporary elements in our home. In addition to everything else, Maria is particularly savvy about kitchen design and functionality. Their aesthetic guidance on the selection of materials – wood, tile, glass, metals, paint colors – is invaluable. They are visionary and able to problem solve creatively. They are able to propose creative design solutions that are well within budget. Jeff and Maria have excellent technical skills. Their attention to detail upfront makes the pricing and construction phases go as smoothly and as efficiently as possible. Working with Jeff and Maria is a wonderful experience. They listen attentively and respond promptly and creatively. They collaborate well with everyone – client, contractors, structural engineers, City Hall – and when necessary are strong advocates for their clients. We almost hate to be done with our architectural projects as we miss our regular interaction with them!"
Knight Architects LLC
Architects and Building Designers in Philadelphia, PA
12 December 2012
"Cathy Knight was the architect for a major renovation and restoration of our 1895 three-story, seven-bedroom, eight-bath home on a two acre in-town site. The project entailed complete rebuilding of the house and several additions and new outbuildings. Infrastructure issues addressed were complete rebuilding of the foundation and successful waterproofing of the basement, rebuilding of chimmneys serving 8 fireplaces, rewiring and replumbing the entire house, replacing and refinishing of floors throughout, rebuilding stairways and securing and replacing failing structural beams. Four new bathrooms were added and 4 bathrooms were renovated. Interior finishes and molding were replaced or restored. New HVAC was installed. Site planning and reconfiguration of the gardens were part of the project. The architect served as project manager for the 18-month construction period. This complex project was magnificently, creatively and efficiently excecuted by the architect and her staff."
k YODER design, LLC
Architects and Building Designers in Philadelphia, PA
18 February 2013
"It was a pleasure to work with Kevin. His design for our master bath was creative and unique, but more importantly, he incorporated our style into his recommendations. Kevin is a perfectionist and this is reflected in everything he does. We highly recommend him."
