WHAT WE DO



At Garcia Architects, we have a passion for improving lives through well-designed spaces. Design isn't about buildings. It's about people. We offer the following services.



COMMERCIAL ARCHITECTURE
& INTERIOR DESIGN



From office tenant improvements to banks, about 50% of our projects have been commercial. We'll assist in providing initial cost estimates and negotiating tenant improvement allowances, and reviewing lease terms. Whether it's a lobby remodel, facade upgrade, major or minor remodel, or a new ground-up building, we have the expertise to quickly move from conceptual design through construction completion within your budget and timeframe.



SINGLE-FAMILY RESIDENTIAL ARCHITECTURE & INTERIOR DESIGN



We love working with homeowners to improve the functionality and beauty of your home. We'll assist in providing initial cost estimates early on to ensure we proceed with a project within your budget before starting permit drawings. From projects as small as a new entry door or media wall to as large as total "gut and rebuilds" or ground-up homes, we will walk you through the process so it is as easy and seamless as possible.



MULTI-FAMILY RESIDENTIAL ARCHITECTURE & INTERIOR DESIGN



We have designed numerous condominiums and apartments buildings ranging from 2 to 50 units, ranging in style from Spanish to craftsman to contemporary, mostly in urban infill settings. As past real estate developers ourselves, we understand developers' needs, and push projects through permitting as quickly as possible while maintaining the quality of design that will facilitate sales and rentals. We have expertise in wellness-based design, and the unique needs of the aging, therefore excel at designing senior housing projects as well.



DECOR & FURNITURE SELECTION & PROCUREMENT



Whether you're in need of a few items to supplement and enhance your existing decor or a comprehensive furniture and decor package, we are here to help with both residential and commercial projects. We work within your budget, and can provide you links to retail products which you can purchase directly without any designer markup, or we can procure furniture from wholesalers on your behalf. From the smallest items such as linens and kitchen items to larger pieces of furniture, throw rugs, and artwork, we are happy to assist with whatever you need for your home or business.



SMALL OFF-GRID BUILDINGS



We are experts at small off-grid buildings that do not require a building permit. Whether it's on wheels, or permanent, we can design and manage the construction of your small space that utilizes the same type of infrastructure as recreational vehicles. We can even design a custom recreational vehicle or camper van that uses non-toxic, VOC-free products. Create a small guest room, rental unit, or yoga, meditation or art studio on your property. If it's on wheels, take it out to nature for some recreating!



FEASIBILITY STUDIES



We will research what is allowable by the zoning department, offer preliminary design concepts, and provide a preliminary construction cost estimate to provide you with a clear understanding of your project in advance of making large monetary commitments. This is especially useful when comparing multiple properties to lease or purchase.



COMMERCIAL CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT



We have extensive experience as an Owner's Representative managing the architects, engineers, and contractors on commercial projects. On smaller projects, we often manage the individual subcontractors on your behalf. On larger projects, we'll manage general contractors. Other services provided include conceptual design, regional and nationwide roll-out management, feasibility studies, analysis of real estate portfolios and consolidation opportunity studies, vendor master agreement negotiations, and property condition assessments.
