“Ah. There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort.”

Jane Austen

Saikley Architects offers a variety of services tailored to our clients’ needs.


Full Architectural Services

We work closely with clients, contractors and consultant team to create built environments that support our clients’ personal and financial interests. Our comprehensive approach addresses the complete project life cycle, from concept through completion. We are adept at managing the intricacies of the permit processes to the best advantage for our clients.

Hourly Consultations

Alexandra Saikley offers hourly consulting when a client simply wants an architect’s advice. She can help with such issues as deciding to remodel versus building a new building, feasibility studies to evaluate cost/benefit for the best way forward, evaluating green improvements, advising on appropriate options for historic preservation, advising on interior design options, or providing quick schematic design sketches.

Interior Design

Saikley Architects provides full interior design services. We develop detailed interior elevations, design custom millwork, work out lighting design, fully integrate the details of the interior design with the architecture, and coordinate installation during construction. We can either purchase the finishes and fixtures for our clients, or assist our clients and contractors in purchasing these items.

Decorating Services

We work out furniture layouts in conjunction with the architectural design and the clients’ aims. We present options for furnishings, window coverings, rugs, and décor, and gather samples of fabrics and finishes for our clients. We assemble and check the orders, and either purchase the items for our clients, or assist our clients in purchasing these items.

Expert Witness

With extensive expertise in residential design, construction, and development, Alexandra Saikley provides architectural Expert Witness services in cases dealing with construction disputes, building defects, planning issues, and land disputes.

Entitlement Consulting

Alexandra Saikley consults with individuals, developers and other architects to assist with entitlements. This may involve coordination with City officials for permits, speaking at City hearings, advice on design for approvability, and neighborhood outreach.

Pre-Purchase Property Evaluations

Working with realtors, developers and individual property buyers, Alexandra Saikley evaluates and compares properties to help buyers get the best value. She examines properties and checks codes and regulations with cities and counties. She sketches design options for new builds or remodels and prepares cost estimates, providing opinions on relative values, opportunities and liabilities to help buyers make the most informed decisions possible.

Real Estate Development Consulting

As the initial phase in a project before developing an architectural design, or as stand-alone consulting, Alexandra Saikley works with homeowners, business owners, and real estate developers on feasibility studies and other real estate development consulting. These services may involve minor or extensive code research, advocating with City and County offices on client’s behalf, diagramming options and developing cost estimates to evaluate cost/benefit, comparing different properties for development, and offering perspective on the best way to meet the client’s aims and wishes for their property.
