TESTIMONIALS


“I have had the pleasure of working with Ian Birchall and Associates on two multi-family projects. One in San Francisco and one in Napa. Ian’s expertise is evident not only is his eye for form and beauty, but also in his understanding of the development process and financial realities of getting a project built. Ian goes above and beyond. Our San Francisco project is on the site of a historic landmark which presented an uncommon set of challenges. Ian was instrumental in ushering the project through the approval process: meeting with politicians, speaking at hearings (several), collaborating with our land use attorney and historical consultants. His ability to craft creative solutions in both design and process have helped get us get over more than one set of unexpected hurdles. Ian has also surrounded himself with a gifted team. I have been particularly impressed with Lisa Espinosa, who’s attention to detail, timing and follow-through kept all of our consulting engineers on their toes and on time. I have worked with several other architects over the years, but have never encountered one to behave like a true partner, as Ian does. I heartily recommend Ian Birchall and Associates.”

                     Elaine A. Reyff, Asset Manager, Tusker Corporation



"For over fifteen (15) years I have worked with Ian and his team … Creating a successful project is a collaborative effort … Ian listens and finds that balance while preserving the integrity of his designs which are meticulously crafted … brings a wealth of knowledge and experience, a keen eye, deep understanding of City codes … I most appreciate his attention to detail, his problem-solving abilities, his depth of knowledge in materials and alternatives, and his ability to address spatial relationships to create beautiful, comfortable, and functional living spaces…"
