It was a great pleasure to work with Michael to design our new house. It was a tear-down and rebuild project. And that was our first time designing a house from scratch. We were lost in all the design ideas and styles. Micheal was able to pull out the real preference and ideas from us and help us design a house that is exactly what we want. Micheal is a very inspiring and knowledgeable architect. He pays attention to every single details in the design. He can be flexible whenever we would like to make any changes, and also be opinionated when we really need help to make a decision. Michael worked closely with us not only on design phase, but also on getting the permit as well as being the consultant throughout the whole building period. The house turned out to be beautiful and exactly what we expected. I strongly recommend Micheal without any reservation! More...

Mike is incredible as an architect and helped us see things about our house remodel plans that we didn't see. What we came up with as a house plan included a cottage for my mom and a fully revamped rest of house that's gorgeous and does everything we hoped it would. At the beginning, he knew how to guide us through all the decisions that would have such huge implications later on...things we didn't fully grasp until we were ankle deep (and head first) in it, lol. Then, throughout the process, Mike was with us every step of the way, making it a great experience. Professional, flexible, cost conscious and super high integrity. Five stars all the way!! More...

My wife and I hired MV Architects to remodel our kids bedrooms, family room, dining room, kitchen and front exterior of the house. Working with Mike was great, as he was a valuable sounding board for ideas, a great problem solver and creative architect. Mike was on our side every step of the way, from initial discussions to final walk through. Mike was extremely easy to communicate with and always kept our requirements at the top of the list. We would be happy to work with Mike again on any project, big or small. More...

Mike is delightful to work with - a real partner who listens to what the client wants. One aspect we most appreciated was his ability to draw out options with a tissue paper overlay during our meetings so that we could see how different layouts worked - my husband had very limited time to meet and this way we could see the different layouts and provide the direction that we wanted to pursue, rather than have to wait for him to go back to the office and send us different options.

Mike designed my 4400sf home for me, he was very professional and knowledgeable in all aspects of the project. Mike was willing to listen and embrace all of my design ideas.
He is an Excellent Architect with great talent and his easy going personality makes the whole process very smooth. I would definitely build another house with Mike!

We just can't say enough about Mike! We were lucky enough to have Mike design a new home for our family. We had to save a portion of the old home to meet town requirements and essentially build an integrated new home as well. The design was seamless.

Mike’s creativity, responsiveness, attention to detail, interior and exterior design aesthetic and enthusiasm were amazing. His understanding of the technical requirements and the nuances of city process and permitting saved us both time and money.

Mike was a wonderfully collaborative team member with me and my wife, our builder and our interior designer, not just on the front end design, but through the entire construction process. He did what he said he would do. He was on time or ahead of time with deliverables and on budget, with no surprises.

We cannot recommend Mike highly enough and do just that for anyone who asks us for an architect referral.

Mike designed a custom home for us in 1995. The outcome was truly amazing--he turned our vision into a functional and beautiful home. In fact, the house was nominated for a Mayor's Award the year it was completed. Strangers would even stop to complement us on the house.

Mike was super easy to collaborate with, and he stayed involved during the whole process. He would frequent the job-site to make sure everything was done correctly, and see if anything needed minor tweaking. He even consulted on interior finishes as we chose not to hire an interior designer (other than a kitchen designer).

I highly recommend Mike Vierhus Architects!

Excellent combination of vision, creativity and common sense. From the early site visits to the final inspection and the minor adjustments needed along the way, our project exceeded our expectations in every way.
