It is often said when you're building a house, you’re building a dream. An architect or master of building design can make your dream house a reality. Architects can help you design and redesign spaces of your home or focus on helping you build your own house from the ground up. Architectural firms have extensive knowledge of architectural design and building materials, and a strong appreciation of ergonomics – warmth, light, and flow within a property.

Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Raleigh

Dawn Christine Architect, PLLC
Architects and Building Designers in Raleigh
24 March 2015
“Her work is simply breath taking. A true professional in all areas. I am blown away with her hard work and passion. GREAT JOB DAWN.”
Hutch Johnson WHJ Design
Architects and Building Designers in Raleigh
2 April 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!!”

“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.”
Habanero Architecture, PLLC
Architects and Building Designers in Raleigh
3 February 2020
“Jose is professional, responsive, and a great listener. His vision for our 1966 split level renovation inspired us. We have enlisted his service for our next project and look forward to completing that project as well.”
Grant Bizios Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Raleigh
29 November 2013
“We hired Bizios Architecht to design our house and we were very happy with the whole process. The firm started by helping us clarify what we wanted and then made suggestions on how to achieve this. Gerogia Bizios and her team designed a house achieving our objectives within our budget and worked well with the contractor to make sure these were realized. In addition, we had a strange lot and they sited the house perfectly!”
BellaDomus Residential Design Studio
Architects and Building Designers in Raleigh
19 February 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.”
Carter Skinner Residential Design

23 September 2015
“I have worked with Carter on multiple projects over the years and he has done an amazing job. I highly recommend him.”
Sophie Piesse Architect, PA
Architects and Building Designers in Raleigh
28 February 2013
“A main concern with renovating our midcentury modernist home was to maintain the integrity of the home originally designed by the locally renowned architect, James Webb. We definitely got more than be hoped for working with Sophie Piesse. Pictures of both the before and the after renovation exist on two websites: http://www.SophiePiesse.com and http://www.trianglemodernisthouses.com.”
Richter-Norton Architecture, pllc
Architects and Building Designers in Raleigh
13 April 2015
“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.”

“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.”
