Having worked with Mechanism a couple of times we find that Adam and his team provide excellent details with knowledge of current products and materials that create beautiful end products. Knowing that we have a partner that is responsive and willing to trouble shoot specific details is appreciated and helps keep the project process smooth and within budget. We are happy to work with Mechanism and have a high recommendation of their services.
When our company began considering a remodel of an existing building for our catering production kitchen and tasting room, we immediately became overwhelmed with the potential obstacles of architectural documents, the city permitting process and needing design advice grounded in the current construction trends. Adam jumped right into our project and worked with us on the front end of what our exact needs were (we felt confident in the initial phases of schematics, space planning, finish selections, but lacked knowledge on everything else), and built a process around what we needed. He took the lead when necessary and was gracious when we had preferences and specific desires for our final product.We felt confident with the exhaustive and thorough research he did on the necessary building codes, and he helped usher the plans through the painful permitting steps- he and his team were so fast and responsive when changes needed to be made. Upon breaking ground he continued to remain attentive to our project when on-site questions arose and giving us guidance when unexpected building dilemmas happened (which they always do!). Mechanism completely helped us achieve our vision of a vibrant tasting room and bustling production kitchen out of an empty broken down shell of an old warehouse. He understood our concept of embracing the character of the “old”, while infusing the clean, industrial “new”.
Very professional, competent and knowledgable in the architectural area which my client needed assistance in. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend or hire this firm again!
Adam at Mechanism Architecture was the perfect fit for our project. He led us through the design, drawing, permitting, and building process - educating us along the way with his calm demeanor and offering insight and wisdom throughout. He helped us create realistic goals and design ideas that we hadn’t considered. I will definitely hire Mechanism Architecture again when the need arises!
