“Kate is an experienced and capable architect with attention to detail. She is also a warm and considerate person who is there to help you. Kate designed the renovation of my 2,000 square foot home and my 1,000 square foot addition. During the design Kate fully understood my desires and requirements, thoroughly studied the existing structure and floor plan and used her professional knowledge and creativity to come up with a design that addressed all of my needs; including functionality, appearance, and cost. It was a pleasant and smooth process working with Kate, as she was always willing to listen and understand my needs, and tried everything to get what I wanted. Where I did not understand, she was always so patient to explain it to me. Her design was also precise and detailed, with all the necessary information.”Li Z.
“There are few things better than a good collaboration. For us Kate Arnest proved to be that rare artist who could share her talent and experience while staying focused on our vision of the home we were trying to create. She helped bring our ideas into focus, came up with solutions we would never have thought of, and kept ‘bumping it up a notch’ while keeping our needs in mind.” Chaz H.
“I have been the principal of an award-winning architectural firm in Palo Alto, California for over 40 years and I am pleased to recommend Kate Arnest as a highly qualified and professional architect. She has demonstrated exceptional skills in working with clients, making design decisions, working effectively with team members, coordinating consultants, developing construction drawings, and demonstrating her knowledge of zoning and building codes. I would completely rely on her to manage any project on which I was working.” Michael Moyer, Architect
