"We used Architectural Innovations to renovate our 1970 home in Bellevue and enjoyed working with the whole team! John was thoughtful in his design and effective in leading us through the process. He listened to us and worked with us to develop creative solutions. We are delighted with the result!"

Sara W. – Bellevue, WA

“When we decided to build our house, we felt excited and nervous at the same time. We asked friends for references and we are so thankful we choose John’s firm to help us design the house. John and Ed have been so patient with us, they are professional, knowledgeable and considering all at the same time. They considered all the details for us, and gave really great suggestions when we have some vague idea but don’t know how to best implement it. They’d reply our email and phone call instantly (let’s just say we had a fair share of questions as house building newbie), and always kept us posted regarding the progress. And what we appreciate most is that when we run into issues during permit application with the city, John help us found the best solution to solve the issue and saved us a lot of cost.

Building a house is certainly a big endeavor, it has been quite an adventure for us. And if we ever decide to take on it again, there is no doubt we’d come to John again.”

Lin L. – Issaquah, WA

“John and his team at Architectural Innovations have been a pleasure to work with. They have made a potentially stressful process smooth and fun. We appreciate how John took the time to get to know us and our needs to make sure that we make the most of our remodel. All staff members are friendly and have gone above the call of duty to help us through the process of creating our dream home.”

Randi P. – Bellevue, WA

"I did my research online for an architect and was attracted to the great work they did. They asked a few questions on what layout I was looking to design and within minutes I was emailed a very similar plan of a past design they’ve done in previous years that had everything I was looking for. We set up a meeting and John redesigned the interior layout and some little changes to the exterior to make it even better with more of a modern open floor plan. my girlfriend and I were impressed with how well he designed the home. Their team was awesome and very helpful along the way…..I highly recommend them!"

Junior M.  Auburn, WA

"We were referred to John and Architectural Innovations by a friend, who spoke very highly of them. Once we met John, it didn’t take long before we knew he was the right choice for our new home. He and his associates designed the perfect home for us on the first try! They listened to us and put our dreams on paper. It was a fun and exciting process. If we were to ever do it again, we would use Architectural Innovations without any reservations."
