In the ten years between achieving my architectural degree and entering independent practice, I worked for several different firms engaged in a wide variety of work. I have worked on a $10,000 bathroom and a $4.5 million National Register courthouse. I have helped to master plan greenfield developments and led comprehensive, community-based neighborhood redevelopments. In my own practice, I've worked on everything from kitchen renovations to the 100-unit apartment conversion of a National Register Downtown high rise to large additions here and in Texas. I am proud of having spent my first five years as an architect pairing office work and construction work, including an award-winning restoration of a 150-year old house. My first-hand experience with construction means that the practical aspects of realizing a design are never far from my thinking. I practice with a design-build mindset, and my relationships with contractors are based on respect and mutual understanding.
Jason Roth designed the (substantial) addition on our house in 2010. Six years later, I still find it a breath-taking space which surpassed all my expectations. The biggest thing that drew us to Jason initially was his communication skills - we felt like he listened to what we were saying, and took time to clarify any confusion, and constantly checked in with us to verify that we were all thinking in the same direction. That made the process smooth and interesting, as we developed plans for the addition, and minimized stress. The timeline and cost were all reasonable for the scale of the project. Later on, he checked in regularly on the construction to make sure it was being built to his specs. In the end, it was a highly successful project, and we love living in this space. For such a high stakes, disruptive experience such as modifying one's home, being able to trust your architect is absolutely crucial, and ultimately that is why I give Jason Roth my highest recommendation. (For what it's worth, we live in Texas, and Jason worked with us long-distance over Skype, email, and in-person visits.)
