We worked with Donna on three separate projects for our house over a 10 year period and are very pleased with her work ethic, ideas, and experience. She was easy to work with and her fees were quite reasonable. We highly recommend her. More...

As a contractor, working with Donna is great! We always end up with a fantastic project, and I end up with nice photos for our portfolio. Donna makes the job run smooth, being that she understands how everything is put together, enabling us to get the proper materials, etc. looking forward to our next project. More...

Donna generously agreed to lend her expertise to my favorite cause, 10,000 Degrees, (a non profit which helps inspire and deliver the dream of college for first generation and low income students. ) We needed a design for our donor wall which married our existing brand and current capital campaign. Donna totally "got it" and provided a design that everyone LOVED while being cost effective and practical. It is now completed in our lobby and sets the perfect tone for the organization - bold inspiration and eternal gratitude. More...

We hired Donna to do an addition on our house. She was always professional, engaged and committed to the project. She also consistently came up with good ideas and the project ended up being much better because of it. She is a pleasure to work with and highly recommend her. More...

Donna Schumacher Architecture provided me with drawings for the renovation of my house, an 1893 San Francisco Victorian located in the Noe Valley area of San Francisco.

The scope of the project included a total removal of the existing 3rd floor of the building and replacement with a new third floor with a completely new roof design including a number of dormers. The existing second floor was also gutted and remodeled with an expansion of the living room, one of the bedrooms, and the kitchen, as well as an addition of a staircase up to current code, and revamping of room entries and exits to make traffic flow smoothly.

Donna's work was extensive and gratifying, and even extended into smaller details such as producing a CAD design of a window based on the concepts of Greene & Greene, famous California architects of the early 1900s.

Donna was always willing to be responsive to my changing ideas and needs throughout the project, which were many because of both my own changing concepts and the need to modify designs imposed by City Planning of the City and County of San Francisco.

I would readily recommend Donna for a project similar to my own, and wish you best of luck with your remodeling.

I’m an architect who has had the opportunity to work with Donna over the course of twenty years. I’ve both contracted with Donna to have her provide my firm with consulting architectural services and I have also referred her to numerous clients.

While being both technically savvy and knowledgeable about the design and permit process in San Francisco and the Bay area, Donna endeavors to imbue each project with appropriate subtle qualities to create both a functional and artistic creation.

I’ve found Donna to be responsive, trustworthy, considerate and diligent when working on your behalf for permit approvals.

I would like to note that aside from her work as an architect Donna is a writer. She writes a wonderfully informative personal blog and has written numerous articles for local and national art-related magazines.

As a design professional, I recommend Donna as an architect that can provide you with the technical and creative assistance you need for the successful completion of your project.

Donna has helped us on two large projects and many smaller ones. In both large projects, she served as architect designing our work space for Stearns Consulting. Donna served as a start to finish architect, beginning with concept drawings and staying with the project through every detail of construction. In both cases, the final product has been elegant, unique and extremely functional. We never fail to get compliments from every new arrival to the office! More...

Donna is a good listener. She got to know us as people. We knew we had a kitchen that needed updating, and she showed us how we could incorporate a few other aspects into the kitchen remodel (more closet space, more pantry and laundry space). The result was not only that we have a wonderful new kitchen that suits our sensibilities, but the whole flow of our space has changed in ways that make our lives much better all around. We are really happy we chose to work with her. She was tremendously helpful with all the choices we had to make and helped us find design elements that suited our taste. She really went above and beyond the call of duty in this respect. More...
