Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in San Francisco

Design & Build . . . by Roger Perron, Inc.
Architects and Building Designers in San Francisco
12 August 2012
“Roger Perron's work is topnotch. The finest quality design and construction! His sub-contractors are also excellent. Very polite and personable, too. Roger's company did a $100,000.+ re-design of our kitchen/ family room. We now have a magnificent Great Room -- with a top-of-the-line kitchen, as well. Roger Perron is responsible, reliable, and entirely professional.I give him the highest recommendation because he deserves it.”

“Was a pleasure to work with very talented professional people. I completed a site measure and the team works very well together.”
Paul Kelley Architecture

17 June 2014
“Paul Kelley is a very efficient and thorough design professional. He is quick to meet with potential clients and prompt to provide details necessary to make the project succeed. He will answer any and all questions and has contact with a large number of building trades to draw from to complete the entire project from start to finish. You won't be sorry you made this call. For more info, check out the website for a full cadre of beautiful projects in and around Napa Valley.”
Jennifer Tulley Architects
Architects and Building Designers in San Francisco
5 May 2016
“Jennifer is a talented architect with an eye for good design and good sense. She can immediately see how a space could be improved, and has a great sense for how a family will use each room, nook and cranny. She blends the two perspectives to create functional, lovely rooms that we enjoy daily. We have worked with Jennifer on several homes and she has designed floor plans that maximize challenging layouts, and fit every request and need we asked for. Her design aesthetic brought a cleaner, more modern influence to our traditional homes, all while respecting and highlighting the period details we chose to keep. During the construction process Jennifer is a strong advocate for the owner, working to ensure that the choices of materials are reasonable in price, and yield solid aesthetic result. She is patient with first time construction and instructive. During both our remodels she was responsive to my questions, and made sure I understood my choices, and pros and cons of each option. She is very responsive by both phone and email, gets plan revisions done on a timely basis and is just a joy to work with. Meetings with her begin on time, keep moving along, and finish with results.”

“I have work with Daryl on several projects ranging from small to large whole house addition remodels as well as new homes for almost 2 decades. Daryl and his team work well with the clients, providing design that is shaped from the clients desires. His team has always been prompt to answer any questions I might have throughout the construction process with great solutions.”

“Gary is a great contractor. Honest and Ethical. I've been working with Gary for over 20 years. One of best contractors I've ever seen. His craftsmanship is one of amazing. He pays attention to detail. I highly recommend Gary to anyone looking for a contractor.”
JBP Architects
Architects and Building Designers in San Francisco
10 February 2020
“I worked with JBP Architects to remodel and re-layout my home, which required a foundation repair and upgrade. As part of this process, I had to move stairs, re layout the kitchen, redo the bathrooms and think about many of the implications of this process. JBP is wonderful to work with because they have construction background and experience, which means that they are realistic about what can be achieved given the time, space, budget and goals of the project. However, they can pair this experience with an understanding of flow, layout and livability - making sure that whatever you put together is truly additive to your home and living experience. I strongly recommend JBP if you are looking for someone that will bring a vision to your project that enhances your home living experience while being able to work with contractors and real world problems all the while.”
Zeitgeist Sonoma
Architects and Building Designers in San Francisco
7 September 2013
“The thought of remodeling our kitchen was very overwhelming. I had some basic ideas of things I wanted changed, but had no idea of where to begin. Jessica listened to my wish list and used her professional, creative style and came up with a classic plan that we are enjoying more that we could imagine. Jessica was such a delightful person to work with !!!”
Dotter & Solfjeld Architecture + Design
Architects and Building Designers in San Francisco
1 November 2012
“We worked with Dotter & Solfjeld most recently to design an Italian villa on a hillside in Saratoga, CA. This was actually our third project together as they worked on an expansion and remodel of our previous house in Palo Alto as well. As soon as we bought the lot in Saratoga Russ and Wencke, of D&S, began studying the landscape, spending significant time at different points in the day to intimately understand the light, the views and the flow of the hillside. Russ and Wencke are experts at both exterior and interior architecture and design, and they are an amazing team! Once they felt they knew the property, they spent time with us to understand what we liked and disliked and then began designing our house based largely on Italian building principles of thick walls and simple, yet elegant, construction. D&S involved us in every step of the process and ensured we were completely comfortable with each phase of the design before moving forward. They totally went above and beyond the call of duty by diligently working with our planning department and even one neighbor. They were our advocates with the City and were clearly extremely well respected by everybody they interfaced with. During the building process, D&S worked closely with our contractor and foreman to ensure that the project ran smoothly and stayed on budget. Often times, there is tension between architects and contractors, but our contractor loved working with D&S. Some of our friends have also used D&S to design ultra modern homes...D&S is super versatile and we unequivocally and enthusiastically recommend them.”
RaBit Design
Architects and Building Designers in San Francisco
5 April 2018
“This team was contracted to do the architectural work on an addition to my home. I sketched out the overall design. Nong listened and offered his suggestions. At the conclusion, his overall design and improvements when far beyond what I had envisioned. He walk through all the paperwork and time needed to get all the permits which allowed me time to take care of the family and talk about the new look. The project is still under construction, but I know my family and I will be happy with what we both (myself and Nong) envisioned.”
