My wife and I are at the concept stage for an extensive addition and partial remodel of our small 3 bedroom home in La Crescenta.

We're looking for an imaginative architect who has experience with construction in Glendale/La Crescenta/Pasadena.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

I very highly recommend my architect Vartan Jangozian -- he is located in Glendale.  You can reach him at 818.956.0570.  My name is Alan Boval, you can read about my experience on my journal (10,000 sq feet) or PM me if you have any questions.

Thanks for recommending an architect.  My question about your architect:  Will he know about ways to save money on the construction of your dream home?  And will he willingly volunteer that information?

Thanks

To answer the two previous questions:

1. He will have some ideas to save you money and I'm sure he'd be more than happy to share them.  The majority of the money saving is going to come from you playing the role of project manager however.  Knowing what you're talking about when getting bids, buying your own materials, and keeping things on schedule are probably going to be your biggest wins.

2. I think that rates somewhere in the $8-10/foot range would be normal - including all engineering required.  If your house doesn't need that much structural steel, is a single story, only has four walls, etc. then you could likely get it for much cheaper (half?).  I think the rates for simpler homes (4-6 walls) are much easier to compare than full custom homes -- you can look at the $/sq foot and probably come close.  For full custom homes you're going to need to get quotes from the architects that you're considering.

Hope this helps,

Alan

If you are still looking for an architect I know someone in Glendora.  She built her own home and it is beautiful.  She is very good at working with constraints.  I can't speak to her rates but I suspect she would be very reasonable.  I don't know if she would want me to splash her name on the internet so send me a personal message and I will forward her info to you.

As it turns out, she is busy for the next 8 months or so with a large project, studying for her license, and having a baby -- so nevermind.  Sorry for the misunderstanding.
