Review by Amit Kulkarni
ArchiUS are reliable and creative
I hired ArchiUS to architect and manage an extensive remodel. I was very impressed by their professionalism, creativity, and attention to detail. In this review, I will share my experience of working with them and highlight some of the features of their work that I liked the most. Design Process ArchiUS followed a collaborative and iterative design process that involved me at every stage. Right from the beginning they listened to my needs, preferences, and vision for the house. They presented me with several sketches and models that captured the essence of what I wanted. We iterated the design dozens of time. ArchiUS was patient enough to go through the iterations until I was happy with the designs. They were open to feedback and suggestions all along. ArchiUS drove the permitting process as well which I really appreciate.

They were super patient
We worked with Archius designs for a large remodel in Redmond. They strike the perfect balance between listening to what we want and stepping in with advice when there was a better option. They were super patient as we worked through some revisions on bathroom design late in the timeline too. I would definitely contact them for any other design needs and recommend to anyone who needs an architect!

Professionals to the core
Swati, Uttara and team are professionals to the core. This was our first remodeling project and they helped us throughout the process - they took our high level ideas and came up with detailed plan. They were very receptive to our feedback and made adjustments to the design as needed. They also helped us with selecting materials for the project - flooring, bathroom tiles, cabinets, lighting etc. We quickly realized that remodeling during covid was challenging especially with supply chain delays. Archius team were able to provide ideas and tips on how to keep the project moving. Often times they helped unblock our contractors by giving them right guidance. Their in-person home visits were super useful in making sure that project was going as per design. Highly recommend them for future projects
