2,350 DC Metro Architects and Building Designers

DC Metro Architects are masters of building design and can make your dream house a reality. Perhaps you would like to find DC Metro 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 DC Metro 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 DC Metro architects will also often help to obtain planning permission and building regulations approval. More

Featured Reviews for DC Metro Architects and Building Designers

Allbright Bullock Architects
DC Metro Architects and Building Designers
23 Jul 2014
“We had just purchased a very prominent corner lot in the Historic District of Lewes, DE. While looking through magazine after magazine, we came across an award feature displaying a house designed by Kirk Allbright. After seeing the house he had renovated for himself in Severna Park, we knew we had the Architect to design our cottage. Kirk and David carefully listened to our thoughts on how we envisioned our new home, and our budget requirements, and simply hit the ball out of the park. The result was a home that has been featured in both House and Christmas Tours in Lewes, and lives like a dream.”

“Josh and Eric combine a sophisticated and experienced architectural design talent with a builders mentality for practicality of cost and construction. They are open for discussion with builders and tradespeople to get it right. They are responsive listeners, energetic, and have a positive outlook. I highly recommend their new firm and will continue to work with them. Jim Boyd - President - Design/Build Inc.”

“We found Lee Weldon very quick to grasp our needs and was thorough in his research of building codes and requirements. He researched materials that we had requested. Our only concern was that he needed more details and specifications on the drawings. We had no problem with Easton's Building Department approving his drawings. We would recommend his firm for future work.”

“Catarina is a tremendous architect and is a real pleasure to work with. I really felt like we worked as a team, instead of her just shoving a design at me. The whole process was very synergistic, and I am tremendously happy with the final product.”
Jonathan Rivera Architecture

17 Nov 2014
“Working with Jonathan Rivera on our custom home has been an incredible experience. We have worked with other architects, but Jonathan has exceeded our expectations in that he understood our direction, but improved upon it tremendously. His passion for our home, and his understanding of how to take all the facets of our project (our unique lot, our budget, our likes) and sketch out the home of our dreams is amazing! Jonathan's experience in all facets of custom home design has made what could be an incredibly over-whelming process truly delightful. Highly recommend!”

“Bob Lamar is THE MAN! He made designing a lake house such an enjoyable experience. Bob took 20 years of house ideas (I am a Pinterest, HGTV, and magazine junkie) and encompassed them in the perfect dream house for my budget and setting. His enthusiasm, professionalism and love of homes is greatly appreciated! Plus, his fees are very fair and reasonable. This man is the total package!!!”
T.J. Gilbride Architects, Inc.

“We have worked with Tom Gilbride, president of T.J. Gilbride Architects, on a few projects and are currently building one with them now. Tom's approach with the clients is excellent. He takes the time to make sure they understand the details of the project before it's being built. His knowledge of details and products available on the market is extensive. He makes clients feel informed and at ease during the whole design and construction process. From a general contractor's position working with his drawings, we have been pleased with the level of detail and clarity they provide. He's also involved on the construction side of projects from a construction administrative standpoint. Unlike some other architects we've worked with, he's helpful and available to the general contractor and the subs as needed throughout the project. He has a good understanding of the means and methods of construction demonstrated in his construction drawings. This understanding is also a refreshing trait for a builder that fosters a good relationship and communication throughout the project, ultimately leading to a well built project and satisfied clients. I would highly recommend T.J. Gilbride Architects to anyone looking to build or renovate as well as to builders looking to partner with a quality architectural firm.”

“Where to begin! Melanie Hartwig-Davis is an extraordinary architect. She has worked on a number of projects for us, including our kitchen, family room/bathroom, and an extensive project where she completely transformed the outside of our house by adding lighted flagstone stairs, custom-designed wrought iron railings and an outdoor deck/entryway that provided us with much needed additional living space. The kitchen she designed for us completely exceeded our expectations. Melanie is one of those rare individuals who is able to think like an engineer and an artist at the same time. It seemed as if she immediately recognized what we needed to do with our space. This required creative interior design ideas to accommodate existing conditions. In addition to serving as our architect, she guided us in selecting colors, lighting, and stylistic features. We had a small space in which to work. She designed a kitchen that was functional, had ample cabinet and counter space, and was visually impressive. We could never have reached such a successful result without her input. One of the aspects we appreciate about Melanie is that she cares. She respects the integrity of the space, the style of the house, and the architecture of the neighborhood. She truly wants her projects to add to the livability of not only her clients but also the community. She is environmental in her choice of materials, and as a result, has impacted all of our additional household decisions. When it came time to replace the siding on our house, we went with a composite siding because we knew that is what she would recommend. We have since moved to a new house and invited Melanie over before our own family. We have a number of projects we hope to complete in the future and we would never use anyone else besides Melanie.”

“Amazing Creative Group!. Such a easy bunch of people to work with! Creativity is mind blowing! We thought we had it all nailed down, and they took what was in our head and transformed it into beautiful house design. Worked with us through out the process to make it so seamless for us.”

“I would highly reccomend Cathy Cherry. I had the pleasure of working with her on a house that she designed for Baldwin Homes for the Maryland Green Show Home. The area that I designed and furnished was the Kitchen, Eat-in Area and Great Room. I love how she designed the areas to be an open floor plan. I find that homeowners in this area of Maryland like open floor plans because it is a more interactive but, casual way of life. When I heard that Cathy was designing the home and wanted it to be a "tidal" home I knew that her style would fit hand in glove with my "Chesapeake Cozy" style. The architectural detail on the home was top notch. In my area, I particularly loved the strong columns. I repeated the detail in my custom built-ins flanking the fireplace. It was easy to plan the interior design around Cathy's classic taste! Gina Fitzsimmons, ASID”
