Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Raleigh, NC

Frazier Designs

“Adam is a great guy who is excellent at designing. I have had the chance to work with him extensively and he always does a great job.”

“Bill Waddell listens to his clients and then conveys their wants and dreams to a design. He is a great advocate for the client and interfaces well with the building contractor and subs for a successful result!”
Hutch Johnson WHJ Design
Architects and Building Designers in Raleigh, NC
2 Apr 2014
“I’ve had the opportunity to work with Hutch on various projects spanning a number of years. On two projects, I was the owner’s representative/project coordinator, so I have seen him through the eyes of a client. On others, I’ve worked on the contractor’s team as selection coordinator, and have seen him through the eyes of a peer. I also work for Hutch as a bookkeeper, so I see him as a business man, and I watch how he relates to all members on any project team. Hutch is not a brand to sell. He is a creative listener who delivers what the client dreams of or requires. When reality sets in for the client, he helps harness the scope so that it fits the budget, but maintains the superior quality of design and function that are important to the client, regardless of scale. I’ve also worked on projects with other designers. When on a “Hutchless” project, one thing I notice almost immediately (and miss terribly) is Hutch’s ability to know how a space will be used or lived in. His perception and foresight are far superior to many other designers. In addition, he knows how materials will function and esthetically relate to each other, so that spaces just plain work — and they look fabulous in the process. Amazingly, with such focus on the design and esthetics of a project, he is forever cognizant of the structural integrity of a building. He knows what works, and what doesn’t. Hutch is very good at guiding his clients through the process, which can be overwhelming. He’s realistic, he issues alerts when needed and he will do what the client insists upon in spite of his better judgment, so long as it does not produce an inferior or dangerous structure. I look forward to working on more projects with Hutch, and to referring him to anyone who needs a thoughtful professional who is really good at what he does and loads of fun to work with. He takes his work seriously, but is anything but stogy!!”
BellaDomus Residential Design Studio
Architects and Building Designers in Raleigh, NC
19 Feb 2013
“Working with Belladomus has been a great pleasure. Their design plans have hugely improved the livability and attractiveness of our home. We especially appreciate their use of natural light to enhance the spaces. We staged our major home improvements in three phases, beginning in 2006 with addition of a screened porch, new decks, breakfast/sun room, and family room renovation. We were so happy with James Morgan's creativity, respect for our budget, and careful attention during construction, that we knew we would continue to use BellaDomus design services. Our next project, a new front porch, and addition to the second story for an enlarged master suite including new bath, was a fantastic improvement to the house. Beth's design talent really showed in her selections of tile, flooring, and fixtures. We are now working with James and Beth on the final stage, with a kitchen/dining room redesign and updates to the entry way, and we are eager to see the plans.”

“Barbara Richter is an architect second to none! My husband is a disabled veteran with needs for adaptable housing that will enable him some degrees of independence in his daily living. This means that our house needs renovation- an added room to accommodate his needs and other adjustments to the home. Barbara came to our rescue and began the process by providing the blueprints and schematic drawings. It is how she did it that continues to impress me as she performed her duties professionally, courteously, and respect for my husband, a retired disabled veteran and for me, his wife. She listened intently and recorded our wish list of needs and wants; she let us dream! Then Barbara took our dreams and planned for our needs based on funding, practicality, efficiency and specification from the federal government. We strongly believe that Barbara saw us as more than “just clients.” We believe she viewed us as persons she connected with and wanted to help. We believe that Barbara loves her work and genuinely cares for those she serves. She has a brilliant mind and is so knowledgeable and skillful in her profession. Barbara worked as a team player with the Project Contractor and the Veterans Administration Official in Winston-Salem. When asked to send additional information or submit revised schematic drawings she did it, even with her busy schedule and in a timely manner with enormous patience. Additionally, as it regards her services, she offers rates that are very reasonable and fair. We are deeply appreciative of the help she has given us to begin the building of a new room for my husband that requires some renovation to our home. It is without hesitation and reservations and with enthusiasm that I strongly recommend Richter-Norton Architecture, PLLC for building and renovation needs.”
Lisle Architecture & Design
Architects and Building Designers in Raleigh, NC
26 Mar 2014
“David's architectural and Ashley's design services are second to none. My wife and I started out with a big challenge for David (to turn the eyesore of the neighborhood into a place that we would be happy to call home), and he rose to the occasion and then some. The work product was second-to-none, and we keep coming back with new projects whenever we have a need. Ashley was a delight to work with as we gutted our living/dining/kitchen area, and she helped us create a space that our family loves to spend time in. The team at Lisle Architecture and Design is the best in town, and we can't recommend them highly enough!”

“We had a very complicated kitchen remodel -- our home was built 90 years ago . We wanted to preserve the style from that era while making design/flow more consistent with the efficiencies of present time. Traci D'Alessio did a phenomenal job in meeting this challenge. her thoughtful and meticulous approach, exceptional skills of listening, and genuine interest in our preferences resulted in an award winning kitchen. I would hire her again for any project. I will also mention that we had the added challenge of employing a design/build firm for our contracting/building needs which meant that at times there were conflicts and potential awkwardness with 2 architects involved. When it was necessary and she felt that the product might be compromised, Traci D'Alessio managed these potential conflicts well -- an underappreciated but VERY important skill. Last, Traci has an exceptional command of the most up-to-date technology in her profession. This enables her to make changes with lightning speed (in comparison to the surprisingly archaic methods of many local architects) -- this will save you not only time but money.”

“Audie was outstanding to work with. We hired her for a renovation and could not have been more pleased with her work. She is terrific and I highly recommend her.”
Calico Studio
Architects and Building Designers in Raleigh, NC
8 May 2014
“Calico Studio was like working with old friends (they provided full design and construction document services for a ground up custom home)! I had the real potential of being a "client-zilla" with an architectural degree of my own, a bit of an analytical nature, active in commercial RE & construction all of my career, and worst of all, no true idea of what I wanted besides the spaces and a rough floor plan sketch. Just coming out of nearly 30 yrs where my ex defined and chose our style, I only had a swirl of thoughts (a big Houzz ideabook), and a jumble of images in my head. Heather was the BEST at sorting through all of this - including my head! We are breaking ground soon on "my first and last HOME" thanks to Calico Studio! It isn't what I imagined it would be, and it is more. And Heather's little tweaks have been genius for the manner in which I live. Based upon her Houzz presence, and the work shown on the independent Calico website, she was an easy choice over 4 other architects to help interpret my needs, wants and desires. I didn't even check references - however, if anyone ever wants to speak with me directly about my experiences, I will be happy to be one for Calico, besides this writing. Heather is completely knowledgeable about the codes, environmental concerns, permitting, the political nature of dealing with municipalities, materials, new markets, work flow - you name it - and without vanity or ego. She is a delight to work with, and I am very lucky I found the perfect architect for my dream home.”
Steven Clipp Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Raleigh, NC
7 Mar 2012
“Steven Clipp is a truly wonderful architect. He listens to everything you say that you dream of in your house, and then somehow makes it all come true! And, unlike many architects, he stays within the budget you ACTUALLY want to spend. In the end, you get an incredibly unique home. Steven really does do this for his clients, not himself. You can call him on Sunday evenings with questions, and he'll talk for hours if you want just because he loves making his client happy. And trust me - as one of his clients, we are as happy as we could be. ”
