"We were extremely satisfied with
's professional approach to our project. He met all of our deadlines and answered any questions we had along the process." I would highly recommend
for any job small or large.

was very thorough and insightful. When I talked to him on the phone he gave me the cost of doing the plans for a finished basement and that he would meet with" me 3 times and I would pay 1/3 of the total cost each time I met with him. The initial visit
made was to measure the entire basement. I had 4 different contractors measure the basement and
was by far the most thorough - he moved furniture and insulation to get an accurate drawing. In one case he could not move a partition he went outside of the house to get the dimensions - this process took almost 2 hours. To provide some comparison I had another contractor with a laser
do all the measurements in about 20 minutes and he missed two places where the walls were indented which is not apparent until you pull away the insulation.
asked me several questions about what I wanted in the basement and how I plan to use the space. In the second visit which was about a week later,
came back with a draft drawing of what would be a good way to finish the basement. His insight and expertise really came to play in our draft meeting as he suggested adding windows in the basement wall to bring more light into the office space. I had explained I like to play
pong and he looked up the space needed to play and took that into account in designing the space for the
pong table. His suggestions on moving a floor joist and rerouting a water pipe again gave us more valuable space. With the space constraints in the basement he came up with a completely different design for the office space that initially I disagreed with but now I really like.
also has a good sense of what would look right but he would draw it the way I preferred. Because of
's insight I moved my office from one location to another and I am very glad I listened to his advice. in the 3rd visit he gave me the final set of drawings which we used to submit for a permit. Finally he dropped off another set of drawings as the township asked for some minor additions which meant he visited my house 4 times. I would highly recommend
as he is thorough and insightful -
's expertise was very helpful in the design of our basement. I do agree with one of the reviewers that noted
can be a bit gruff when you first meet him but after a few minutes he does warm up and I really enjoyed my interactions with him!

was a pleasure to work with in terms of estimating scope and cost of new deck. The construction of the new deck started on date promised and was completed" in a timely manner. All work was done with great care and detail like they building a new deck at their own home. Overall a good experience with this builder and his staff.

Very poor communication skills and very arrogant. Would only hire this firm if you want a plan stylistically that like what he has done before. Fails to listen to what the client is seeking. Overcharges on invoicing and submits expenses that could be considered fraudulent.

was fantastic. We could not have asked for a more professional, kind, and knowledgable architect. Our project was difficult for a number of reasons - age and design of our existing home, our desire to live here while the addition was being done, some existing areas that had to be brought up to code, working within a budget, etc.
We talked to several different folks, but so many architects seem to want to build their dream home rather than yours.
California Architects Provider Name Locked
was exceptional at listening to what we wanted, then offering ideas on different ways to achieve those goals. He designed an addition for us that fits extremely well with our existing home - and it has drawn lots of compliments - even from random people walking or jogging in our neighborhood. I know that he some commercial buildings as well, so we would absolutely recommend him for any type of project.

Ryniewicz is great to work with as you are looking to bring an idea to life.
My wife and I have been considering putting in just a basic bathroom in an area of our unfinished basement ever since we moved in years ago. Wishing, thinking... nothing.
Enter
California Architects Provider Name Locked
. An email to
California Architects Provider Name Locked
, a short appointment to show him the space and talk through needs and wants --he's friendly, knowledgeable, insightful, personable-- and he came back with a design for the space that blew my hair back.
People in the service sector always talk a good game about exceeding expectations and that rarely happens, right? Right!
California Architects Provider Name Locked
not only delivered on the basics but he added some creative touches that we wanted but didn't know that we wanted 'em until we saw them in his designs that made us eager to get started.
For example, his design was creative and refreshing in that he didn't use the whole space for the bathroom as I had envisioned and expected. This was not a bad thing, as it turned out. Areas around the bathroom got addressed that weren't on our radar but made a HUGE difference in how we now feel about our basement - less dungeony and more of a warm, completed home feeling. Some key touches:
+ He instead made a slightly more compact bathroom area and designed space for a small closet adjacent to it because we had a crawl space entry way under our sun room where we stored luggage and holiday items in Rubbermaid tubs. This still provided access to an area we thought we might have to access elsewhere (there was no real alternative), or worse,
California Architects Provider Name Locked
access it to it altogether. A door to this closet completed that side. Smooth.
+ On the other side
California Architects Provider Name Locked
added another door to our final area of unfinished basement where our laundry area housed our washing machine. This doorway compartmentalized things perfectly. Sweet.
+ On the wall next to the bathroom was our unsightly hot water heater and central AC unit.
California Architects Provider Name Locked
designed an accordion door to enclose that and added a ceiling so that we're not staring up at floorboards, pipes and wires. Now when you walk downstairs into the basement you're not greeted by groaning machinery but by a nice clean white look. This is also key as people passing by on the sidewalk could always stare down into our basement through our glass door and see this unsightliness, so my wife had a curtain to hide it and, well, that didn't look too great either. So much better now.
+
California Architects Provider Name Locked
also had the dog-leg of a wall separating our finished side of the basement with the unfinished side vastly widened so that descending into the basement didn't have you bobbing and weaving with baskets of laundry or holiday decor - so glad that's now a wide, warm embrace versus a stuff arm to entrants.
+ Final touches that made this a gem was that he had the dingy stairs going down into the basement refinished. Before there were gaping cracks to the underbelly that always blew in cold air and the color didn't match and it looked unsightly. It's now the best looking staircase in the house!
And the bathroom? Yes, all of the above were bonus "things we love that we didn't know we wanted" touches.
+ The bathroom was smartly designed with a stand up shower in an expansive 3x5' space with glass doors and a custom built bench, in case Grandmas need a spot to sit and shower.
+ Shower had built in areas in the wall to house shampoos and body wash.
+ Recessed lighting to maximize space
+ Toilet area with a window behind it for natural light and a deep shelf for plants, etc.
+ Space for a wide sink and a medicine cabinet recessed in the wall so the mirror is flush.

Overall we love the design, the easy back and forth with
California Architects Provider Name Locked
when needed (not often; no issues at all!), we used his recommended contractor who was equally talented and professional that executed
California Architects Provider Name Locked
's vision, and now we're enjoying the benefits of his creativity.
Cost: His rates are competitve and very affordable. We paid when the designs were approved. His contractor was also very affordable which put us in the ballpark to get it done. We paid the contractor half up front and half at the end.
Should you consider him? Consider this: If you're seeking someone to stretch your dollar to deliver a finished design that is impressive and is the definition of the nodding approval "Niiiiiiice!" then you can get no better recommendation than

was GREAT! Our architect, Nabil Zahrah, not only provided the drawings for the porch repairs, but also provided insight into the city department of buildings process for code violations. When the drawings were complete, he provided an overview of the drawings (our Condo Board is not comprised of architects) and walked through the repairs and process.
Once a contractor was selected, he returned to inspect the work, made additional recommendations for the contractor, and even helped us negotiate the price for the additional work. Nabil was responsive, timely and very giving considering our gross ignorance of the work and processes. Should we need an architect again, we won't hesitate to contact

Designing and planning our house with
California Architects Provider Name Locked
was an extremely pleasant experience. In fact I can't say enough positive about
California Architects Provider Name Locked
. He is very gifted at design and makes the software dance as he puts design components together. He is very helpful but at the same time he is laid back and listened to what we wanted and then provided design suggestions. His flexibility to squeeze us in amongst other major design projects was greatly appreciated.
California Architects Provider Name Locked
took on a sense of ownership of our house design and he made things happen. He also was very helpful in providing a list of builders and critiques of builders to help us choose one. We were new to the area and
California Architects Provider Name Locked
helped us design and get ready to build our house.

in a word GREAT. it was a lot of fun to go through this process and everyone I've shared it with has also thought it was such a cool idea. Basically you upload dimensions and a description of design work you want done - in our case finishing our attic. The website recommends the prize money amount (in our case $550) and then designers from around the globe work on designing the space. we got about 15 really impressive designs... would definitely do this again!!

Purchased a house that was a short sale. Needed a lot of work. I interviewed several different contractors. Felt comfortable with
California Architects Provider Name Locked
. He understood the look we wanted to achieve for our new home. Gave us his cell number from the beginning. Was here everyday and
Flooring- Removed the old pink carpet and had the wood floors sanded dark brown.
Kitchen- Completely gutted it. New everything
Bathrooms - Completely gutted it. New everything
Room Addition- Extended the entire back of the house, including our master bedroom and the living room. Everything from flooring,and electric was added.
California Architects Provider Name Locked
included a computer layout for us to see how it would come out before he started.
Overall, GREAT experience. The look of our new home came out better than we had hoped.
