My wife and I were exceedingly pleased with the quality and comprehensiveness of the architectural services provided by Bryan Pollard and would unabashedly recommend him. If you are looking for an exceptional architect, someone to steward you through he daunting building process in a timely manner and demonstrate what a truly professional and creative architect is capable of then Bryan is your guy.

I was told that the process of tearing down and completely rebuilding my house should have been a stressful and agonizing process. With Bryan, neither was true. He is an extraordinary architect. Bryan was attentive to my needs, wants and wishes. What I appreciate even more was the fact that Bryan was concerned that the house function in the most efficient way for my husband and his physical needs. His professionalism, and attention to detail, both in the design of the home and in the daily operation were appreciated as well. When Carpinteria asked me to have the house not heir tour of homes I was proud to say Yes!

We chose Bryan for our beachfront rebuilding process because we had seen the quality of his design on our neighbor’s home. His innovative ideas completely changed our vision of the rebuild. His timeliness and stewardship in getting our plans completed and through the city greatly exceeded our expectations. I would recommend Bryan to anyone who wants an architect who is personable, qualified, timely, and innovative.
We interviews several prominent local architects and knew right away that we would work well with Bryan. Not being our first project, we both had very strong opinions and vision for our hillside property with incredible ocean views. A somewhat complex project with los of apprehension about the permitting process, it was by any standards a big endeavor. Bryan was calm and purposeful from the beginning. He brought incredible artistry and beauty to the vision we had. If we were to build again, we would use Bryan as a partner in the design and architecture again. What more is there to say.

We have had the please of living in a home designed by Bryan Pollard for the last twelve years. Although we were not involved in the initial building process, we were the first to view the home when it came on the market and immediately made an offer! From soaring wood ceilings and a beautifully crafted wooden spiral staircase to floor-to-ceiling windows that invite the outside in, the home has wonderful character. The varied roof lines accent the natural stone and exterior siding. Visitors are always impressed with the many architectural details that make this home unique.
Bryan Pollard translated our idea of an extra room over a carport to expand the upstarts space into a completely new look for our house, updating the exterior, and adding a two car garage, along with the additional space. Byran’s creativity is surpassed only by his attention to detail, finding us the perfect garage doors and exterior lights when other options didi satisfy. He worked effectively with the contractor and sub-contractor, was involved in the ongoing decisions throughout the process, and kept us sane when insanity was the word of the day. Bryan was as excited as we were at the important juncture during the building process; his energy, sense of humor, and ongoing investment in the project cemented our initial impression that we had chosen the best architect.
