kevin akey - azd associates - michigan
Grand Rapids Architects and Building Designers
4 Jan 2013
“I can't say enough great things about our experience working with AZD on our dream home! This is NOT the only architect that we looked at and based on their creativity, personalities involved and the work they've done for us we definitely made the right choice. I also very much liked that they had a clear pricing model that was concise. Other architects that we met with in the area couldn't provide us with much clarity and only left us more confused on how much it might cost. Our house will be out here on Houzz at some point and you'll see why we're excited about the work they've done and their creativity....it's going to be a very cool house! My wife shares the same sentiment as I do with our AZD experience and how fun it's been and still is as we plan to break ground. I would recommend them to anyone looking for an enjoyable experience when planing a home whether traditional or modern. We actually found them by dumb luck as we were talking about building our dream home many years ago. We spent countless hours and weekends driving around looking at homes for years. There were four houses that we loved, although each very different, and we kept going back and looking at them. They were all many miles apart and in different cities in our metro area. Ironically, one went up for sale, and in the Realtor.com listing it said "designed by AZD". I had never heard of them but with a simple google search their site popped up and looking at their portfolio it was interesting to find that the four houses we loved were all designed by AZD. We still looked at other Architects just to be completely informed, and as I said above, we know for certain we made the right choice to go with AZD. Building a dream home is about the total experience...the right Architect makes a huge difference in that experience.”

“ADIDA, Inc., is a pure joy to work with! We have worked with Valentina on several projects. She always brings fresh ideas that meet or exceed our expectations and that of our Clients. She takes the time to listen and incorporate the client's must-haves with what will work in their space and really goes the extra mile to make sure their needs are met. Valentina also makes herself available when it works for our Clients schedules, which makes scheduling meetings easy and convenient. She really cares about how you will live in your home and you can see that in her details. We are eager to work with her again!”
Design Evolutions, Inc.

“I have used Design Evolutions for two of my homes, both in Battle Creek, MI. The second one is so spectacular I could not sell it when I took a job in a new city. Ii so appreciate the talent and abilities of this firm. You know what they say. Be open to new concepts and allow a talented professional do what they love. Our home took advantage of a wonder view location and was sited on the lot with direct interaction with the designer. I personally am a landscaper and artist but not by trade. I wrapped a landscape around my house that even amazed the top landscape company in town. Design Evolutions gave me a creative pallet to allow a wonderful extpreciation from which to put into my art work.”

“As a Chicagoland kitchen and bath designer, I have worked with the dSPACE group on a number of residential kitchen and baths. They are a talented and professional group. Great ideas and inspired designs flow from the studio on Lincoln Ave. A pleasure to work with on every job.”
Keystone Designs
Grand Rapids Architects and Building Designers
12 May 2018
“After a few false starts with others in the area, Keystone has been a breath of fresh air, with timely service, reasonable rates, and great customer service. It's also clear that Keystone's technical advice is very sound. Being an engineer, my curiosity can be unwelcome in technical areas, but Ven has helped me fully understand the merits of his work. He's also helped our builder bring solid plans to reality, with little of the friction you might expect between architect and builder. Working with Keystone has been a rare pleasure in today's world; not only has the quality, cost and thoroughness of Keystone's work been excellent, but their sense of urgency has helped keep our rehab project timeline intact.”

“Corri is a professional on every level. I hired her to design a small home using principles of sustainability, functionality and feng shui design. With a small budget and big ideas I needed someone who understood me and could deliver in an organized and manageable way. I was not disappointed at any point in our process. I have not yet built the house but she has created my dream.”
AB2 Architecture

“We have hired many architects over the years, and have found AB2 Architecture to be one of the best. Arnie Bunkley is an experience professional. Good creative thought, balanced with a practical knowledge, helped our mutual clients realize exceptional results. he became one of of the team, a group of artisans with a common goal, "provide the client with an outstanding experience and house." We also enjoyed our interactions with him, every situation was pleasant and respectful. I highly recommend AB2 Architecture and plan to hire him again. Brian Bosgraaf, President CottageHome”

“Todd was such a great architect to work with. We were very naive on the building process and relied immensely on Todd’s creativity to draw our dream home. My wife and I are very indecisive and Todd was very helpful guiding us and deciphering what we actually wanted. Todd’s patience shined through with over 20 iterations of plan changes. Todd made the process stress free and delivered amazing results. We will definitely be utilizing his amazing skills if we build again.”

Sears Architects
Grand Rapids Architects and Building Designers
12 Nov 2015
“Sears Architect designed a 3100 sq house for us in East Grand Rapids, MI. We have never built a home previously. We found the design process to be very efficient which resulted in a home that matches our needs and wants. The Sears project manager was very responsive and Rob Sears seemed to be full informed and involved at all times. Having said this there were many heartaches that occurred that could in part be mitigated with up front client education. In talking with another friend who build a house with Sears last year, our experience was similar to theirs. 1. Architectural costs - designing a custom build house is more expensive and has more components than one would expect. Multiple site surveys, structural engineers, each set of more detailed plans add to the final cost. We spent $xxxxx for plans - which were the refinement of a plan presented to us in a design build proposal by the builder. In addition we used an interior designer recommended by the architect another $xxxx. We would have been happier if we had a fixed predefined budget as the builder led us to believe the costs would be about $25,000. Having said this, Rob Sears was very responsive to financial questions and happily and promptly provided the billing records that justified their billings. In addition I felt Rob made a strong effort to follow the project to completion and did quite a bit after delivery of the plans, uncompensated, to finish the job. In the end we are very happy with Sears Architects - but wiser for the experience. 2. Cost of building. We learned that there was essentially no communication between our builder and the architect regarding the building allowances and the costs of the developed plan. Our home ended up xx% over budget, despite most components falling within allowances - the builder just underbid to get the work. What I learned from the process is that is not the architects job, rather the home owners sole responsibility, to verify all components are accuately costed prior to contracting a builder. 3. Interior designer. We did not expect how important the interior designer would be in implementing the design of the home - guiding interior and exterior materials, designing lighting schemes, plumbing, etc as well as planning for furniture layout. Sears recommended Christine DiMaria. We separately retained her. My wife and I thought she did a great job - design, providing perspective from other project, helping sort priorities, communicating with the architect and in general holding our hands through the up and downs of the 10 month process. We were glad we used a designer who had worked with the architect before. 4. Landscape design. This was a separate contract and budget through a landscape architect. Sears coordinated well re the placement of the house on the lot, grade decisions needed so proper retention walls could be planned and built by the Landscape team. So overall, I feel that Sears Architecture is a terrific firm that does good work. We are very happy with the completed product of our home. We would recommend them to other home buyers.”
