Superlative Architect!
We have been very pleased with the architectural services provided by Gil Garcia, of Garcia-Teague, and feel very fortunate that he is working with us. Our project is a complex remodel of a two-story home with several important constraints, including budget and siting. We have very specific ideas about what we want. Gil has been able to respond to our ideas and translate them into design specifications, suggest very good alternatives, and satisfy virtually all of our requirements. He is very conscious of our budget requirements and always asks us to consider tradeoffs. One aspect of Gil’s work that we particularly appreciate is his ability to take a general idea (“we would like an open staircase that will provide an atrium-like feel”) and implement it in a specific, integrated design that works with everything else. In that way, he provides exactly what we want in an architect: a professional who listens carefully to our ideas and translates them into realistic solutions. We believe it is important to emphasize one aspect of working with Gil: he listens. We’ve heard of architects who want to impose their own vision on a project. Gil is not that way at all. He suggests alternatives that are often wonderfully creative and always responsive but he never imposes. Nor does he insist that there is only one way to solve a problem. We have enjoyed working with him and the design for our home is much improved because of the collaborative relationship that Gil and we developed. His design for our remodeled home is very well done, the details are all accounted for, and we are assured that the design can be built within our budget constraint. We could not ask any more from an architect. We recommend Gil with no reservations.

Modernizing a 60's California Ranch
Gil was recommended by our real estate agent and we are thrilled with the job he did. Gil listened to us and was easy to communicate with. He took our 1964 California ranch from a chopped up, cramped space to an open, bright, functional space. He helped us navigate quickly through the design and permitting process because of his strong relationships with excellent local contractors, engineers, and the city permit and inspection process. Gil gave us a quick turnaround on the design and delivered it under budget! He maintained contact with both us the homeowners and also with our general contractor throughout the build process to make sure everything was done according to his design. We couldn't be happier about our choice of architect!

Sad to Wonderful
When I relocated my office to a building our firm had purchased, I needed an Architect that could share my vision and put on paper what was necessary for my vision to become a reality. Gil and Wendy did just that. The relationship was one of understanding, inspiration and cooperation. A real team effort to return a sad building to its former functional and beautiful self. Our building has won a number of awards thanks to Gil and Wendy's help. We have been in the new space over 6 years now and our employees are thrilled with such a wonderful place to work. Our clients still comment on how nice the office looks. Thank you to Garcia Teague Architecture + Interiors for a wonderful job.

Rebuilding our house which was destroyed by fireg
We were very pleased with the service we received from Garcia Teague Architects. Mr. Garcia drew several plans and discussed them with us until we were satisfied. Then he presented them to the city, and we received our building permits very quickly. He worked with a team of a structural engineer and building contractor to build our house, which was completed in a timely manner. Through out the building process, Mr Garcia kept checking on the construction to make sure it was being done well and was always available to to answer our questions. We love our new home and thank Mr. Garcia for all his work!
