Philadelphia, PA Architects and Building Designers

Philadelphia, PA Architects are masters of building design and can make your dream house a reality. Perhaps you would like to find Philadelphia, PA architects to help you extend the kitchen and install bifold doors opening out onto a newly landscaped garden? Maybe the challenge is a loft conversion but you’re not sure how to make the most of the limited space up there? You might even wish to hire architects in Philadelphia, PA to help you build your own house from the ground up. Architects can help you to get a clearer idea of what is possible, both in terms of the land you own and the budget you have. They have extensive knowledge of architectural design, construction methods and building materials, not to mention a strong appreciation of ergonomics – warmth, light and flow within a property. Architects will also be far more capable of seeing the bigger picture – carefully balancing aesthetic appeal with structural safety – and navigating all those little steps from concept through to completion. And with their local knowledge, your Philadelphia, PA architects will also often help to obtain planning permission and building regulations approval. More

Featured Reviews for Philadelphia, PA Architects and Building Designers

Michael W. Kolchins, Architect
Philadelphia, PA Architects and Building Designers
16 Nov 2017
“Michael was fast, responsive and pleasant to work with. We changed what we wanted to do a few times. He changed what we wanted quickly and happily. I would definitely recommend Michael to someone looking for an architect!”

“Steve is great to work with. He drew up plans for reconfiguring our ground floor to accomodate a laundry room , for a guest suite in the basement, and for a future project to add a bathroom on the second floor. We were very pleased with the options he provided and with the result. We would recommend him to anyone who wishes to improve the appearance and functionality of their home.”

“I have worked with Lance Kraemer for many years on several projects and find him to be of the highest professional integrity with great creative solutions to the real world challenges of the automotive industry. I would recommend him to anyone considering his services.”
Studio 810 Design/Build
Philadelphia, PA Architects and Building Designers
21 May 2013
“We are writing to wholeheartedly recommend Timothy (Tim) Strosser of Studio 810 Design as a designer and general contractor for home improvement. In 2012, we met Tim at the Philadelphia Home Show, and were impressed by Tim’s portfolio of previous designs and building projects. On his first visit to our home in the Philadelphia suburbs Tim impressed us again with his instant understanding of our home improvement needs. We wanted to build a new bathroom in a little-used space that was attached to our master bedroom, but Tim suggested a much better solution; building an addition to the house’s second floor, and placing the bathroom in it. This way we got a fabulously looking new master bathroom that is an envy of our friends and neighbors, and avoided a mistake of building a bathroom that would be to small and not convenient. Timothy also designed and built for us a mudroom in front of our house, completely redesigned and rebuilt our patio, and changed the siding all around the house. We are very satisfied with the quality of his design and workmanship of his crew. Tim is a very experienced project manager, and he worked hard to accommodate our specific requirements during the project and to adjust all the logistics accordingly. He was able to keep the project deadlines despite very unfavorable weather conditions, the climax of which was Hurricane Sandy. During the project we occasionally changed our mind regarding some details (e.g., selection of tiles), and Tim was always ready to either accept our new ideas or, when they were not practical, offer very good alternatives. During the project we developed a trusting, friendly relationship with Timothy and many of his crew members. We were so satisfied with our collaboration with Tim that, after the first big project was completed, we tasked him with a couple of smaller projects in our house (e.g., staircase renovation), and outside (landscaping). We are sure that, with his great artistic taste, his extensive technical experience, and his understanding of individual clients’ characters and preferences, Timothy can exceed expectations of the most demanding clients. We already recommended the services of Studio 810 to our neighbors, and we recommend them to you.”

“Mark Asher & his team are a first rate design firm. We are in the midst of a whole house renovation project with them which couldn't be running any smoother. The design that Asher Associates came up with transformed the house beyond recognition. The level of detail in their drawings and specifications leave nothing to the imagination, they've got it all covered!”
Douglas R. Schotland Architect

“A Step In Stone has worked with Douglas R. Schotland Architect for over the past four years. We have collaborated on several renovation projects together. We have found his attention to detail and customer focus to be excellent. He also has an eye for design and has pulled together some unique elements in the space that just make it look exceptional!”

“Glad to see you on Houzz. Pleasure working with you. Keep up the great work, you are wonderful young professionals.”
Balestri Architects
Philadelphia, PA Architects and Building Designers
28 Apr 2014
“My husband and I were lucky to find Balestri Architects during our search for an architect to fully renovate our run down loft in Tribeca, NYC, a number of years ago. Carlo supported our project, not only through ideation and design, but through the bidding process, helping select a contractor, working closely with the chosen contractor during construction and being very present on the site until every last detail on the punch list was fixed, perfect and permits closed/received. We feel like we received the services expected from a large firm but with the intimacy and knowledge of everyone on our project that one gets from a small, young and agile firm. From beginning to end Carlo was professional, hard working, and impressively detail oriented. He was our advocate; he honored our budget limits and pushed us when needed. We were continually impressed with his knowledge of the sometimes frustrating and long process needed to be followed in NYC; permits, codes, DOB processes, and even helping with the internal approvals required within our small but challenging coop board (which was our entire building as there were only 4 owners). We were even more impressed and excited by the creativity of the design. Carlo managed to meet all of our needs as well as desires while maintaining equal focus and energy on the less glamorous but equally important details like lighting, electrical work, etc. What we hadn’t anticipated was his invaluable input on the interior design elements, and the impressive amount of time he spent with us looking at tiles, stone, fixtures and so much more. We have since moved to a very old home in Westchester NY that required a lot of work. We have used Balestri Architects again for a number of projects. We worked through an entire 'Master Plan', and have to date, moved ahead on 1st floor work. We are almost done with the project which includes structural work, brand new kitchen, entry way, powder room and more. Again, we are very happy with every aspect of the project and Balestri Architects has proven to be able to work with our modern loft space as well as an old 1870's barn. Photos can be found by searching for Laight Street and Fargo Lane. We recommend Balestri Architects to anyone and everyone who asks.”

“Jeff is one of the most talented individuals I have worked with in my past 20 years in the industry. He has an amazing ability to walk into any room and immediately see the end product in vivid detail. His designs combine the best of space planning and functional design while maintaining a breathtaking sense of presence, scale and grandeur. Beer Architectural in my opinion has defined the modern estate home in affluent suburbs of NYC.”
