We’re not just another design firm. See what people are saying about us.
The Job Dylan Chappell completed for me was an extensive seven figure remodel of a rather plain, poorly built home in Montecito. The entire building was revised and restructured, with new elements, lines, new roof, new windows and doors, etc. He took an eye sore and made a beautifully elegant house of it. Essentially, Dylan gave us a virtually new building.

Recently we’d asked Dylan for some input and ideas regarding a patio structure we’ve been thinking about having built. Again, Dylan was very flexible in accommodating our needs as we began to formulate exactly what it is we want. His ideas and renderings were very well thought out and communicated in a manner that allowed us to better hone in on exactly what it was we want to accomplish.

Finding a fairly good architect that is not overly concerned about costs or completion time is not to difficult. Finding a great one that you want to work with again and again is not easy.

Dylan did a fabulous job in translating our “wants and needs” into a finished product that we’ve been extremely happy with. In short, as challenging as the remodel process can be, the experience and the outcome was everything we’d hoped for.
A few years ago, we engaged Dylan Chappell to design a major remodel for our home in Santa Barbara. This was a very big commitment for us and something we’d be planning on doing for a few years. Throughout the entire process, Dylan was not only a sound and innovative creative voice, but it was always tempered with reasonable, pragmatic thinking.
At this time, If I wanted a great design, on time, and on budget; my first choice would be Dylan. He has great insight, great design, easy to work with, get it done quicker than most, and in the end will probably save you a ton of money.

When I first began working with Dylan I was skeptical of how he would help with my new house. I had taken some Autocad classes and already had a good design I liked. I’d heard stories of architects envisioning elaborate and expensive plans that didn’t relate to what the home owner wanted. Working with a small budget I felt I was taking a big risk by paying for design services that I thought the contractor and I could work out. However, after seeing Dylan’s first revisions to my plans, I knew I had made the right choice by getting him evolved. Not only did he improve on my ideas, he was able to get everything I wanted in less space with much needed additional storage. If you are looking for an architect that will listen to your needs, save you time and money and give you a great design, I can highly recommend Dylan Chappell.
