Below you'll find ratings and reviews of architects and architecture firms. If you are thinking of building your dream home or a new house, or just looking into additions and renovations, consult a residential architect, design architect or landscape architect who can discuss modern building codes, recycling and green systems, and technical needs. Perhaps the hottest trend today is green architecture. Consumers should review their needs before engaging an architect for a project, and plans are drawn based on their ideas and align to building codes. Our members comment on professional architecture firms' experience and knowledge on foundation issues, emergency permits, floor plans, renovations, and home additions.
