I am thrilled to have been able to work with everyone at Gast Architects over the past four years and am thoroughly satisfied with my home, which I feel is warm, livable, and reflects my own personality.

CLIENT REVIEWS

 
The design is a delight. The floor plan works well, we have lots of useful space, and it succeeds in our basic objective in building a ‘new’ Victorian which respects the original and is neither obviously new nor an awkward reproduction.
Very effective listener — helped us arrive at a good design without rejecting our opinions.
David is a highly skilled, communicative architect. He makes the process so easy for his clients, and has amazingly creative solutions. David is fully versed on the difficult San Francisco building codes, and how to maneuver through city planning, and DPW. I would recommend David Gast to anyone seeking the best architect.
We are very satisfied. The result is just what we’d hoped for (and our expectations were high).
I have to tell you again how much I enjoy our kitchen – so clean and elegant, I don’t think it will ever go out of style!
We felt your expertise through the construction phase was extremely valuable, particularly the knowledge of the various mechanical and structural systems.
We are 110% satisfied with the design. When showing friends the renovations, the first thing we point out is that we have a fantastic architect who came up with the idea of using the upper part of the entry hall to build another room. We get lots of ooohs and aaahs upon entering that room. And, of course, many exclamations on the beauty and elegance of the library.
