“I believe a project must suit each individual client; meet their wants and needs. To meet this goal, I do not specialize in any one design “style.” Each project comes with a unique set of variables such as the site, its topography and its sun orientation. Each client brings personal tastes and rituals to the design. I value the opportunity to enhance their lives and environment with high quality designs.”

I’m an architect who typically works with homeowners who are passionate about their quality of life, but typically are unhappy—sometimes even embarrassed—with their homes. Because of this they don’t invite family and friends to their home as often as they would like. I often hear

  • they are fearful that an architect’s design will break their budget
  • they are stressed that an architect won’t listen to their wants and priorities
  • they are anxious that an architect will create unbuildable details

Have you stalled in your remodeling aspirations because of fear of the process or being overwhelmed by the mountain of decisions? Avoid becoming a horror story by reaching out to me.

Send me a note to linder@studiolinder.com or complete the contact form. I will assist you within a reasonable budget to find ways for your home to enrich your life and I will take the mystery out of the process.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, gardening, sketching and volunteering for local charitable organizations. I also enjoy armchair coaching SF 49ers football, SF Giants baseball and SJ Sharks hockey. When time allows I enjoy watching movies old and new; at home or in the theater.

 

“Linder is an extremely thoughtful person. He makes a point to get to know his clients and their needs so that he can help them achieve their goals. We always felt that Linder was listening to us and considering our best interest. Linder knew how important details are to us so on one occasion he took me to the supply store to decide between ivory and taupe sand to set between our travertine stone patio…”

“Linder was the designer on a full home remodel that was done over several months in 2004. My home is still a delight for me to return to each day. I love all the aspects of the job Linder provided me. He was insightful, creative, communicative and lovely to work with. Linder listened to my desires and the end result is that I have a beautiful, award winning home that feels perfectly “mine”. Not something another person designed to suit their idea of beauty. You will be very happy if you engage Linder, I have no doubt.”

“We became acquainted with Linder several years ago when we were remodeling our kitchen and had plans to open it into a great room, which would have involved significantly enlarging our home. Linder was a delight to work with. He was the ultimate professional and impressed us with his creativity and flexibility in being open to our requests. Linder is an architect who puts his clients’ desires above his own and strives to create beautiful, livable spaces. When it became necessary for us to go back to the drawing board and downscale our plans, Linder was helpful in finding new ways to meet our needs. We highly recommend him and would happily hire him again.”

“Linder has helped us over the past 3 years as we have gone through multiple phases in our house remodeling journey. The fact that we continue to rely on him for multiple projects speaks to our trust and respect for his work. Linder has worked on both small and large projects—with equal enthusiasm. We appreciate both his design skills and his project management skills. He is our point person for architecture, estimation, sub-contracting, and permitting. He is always calm and patient—and he tolerates our BIG noisy dogs.”

“We hired Linder as the architect when we remodeled our house. The scope of the remodeling consisted of removing one weight bearing wall, construction of a new kitchen, construction of 2 new bathrooms, removal of chimney, and improvement of main entrance. Linder did an excellent job on our project. He is never late on the milestones and his regular meeting kept my husband and me on schedule. He came to every meeting with well-prepared drawings, so my husband and I had good visuals to quickly make decisions. Linder is detailed and very thorough.”

Enriching lives through well-designed spaces. Contact Linder Jones today to start a conversation about your project.

Our proven process is unique. I’d like to first learn about you and your project during a phone call. This will give us an opportunity to get acquainted, for you to share with me a bit about your project and to discover if the services I provide make sense for you and your project. By the end of this phone call we should be able to decide if working together feels like a good fit. Then, we’ll usually set up a time to meet at your home to continue our conversation. If we decide to work together, I like to set up regularly scheduled meetings, (face to face, via phone call, via online or at showrooms) to review progress, drawings, design decisions, material selections and next steps for future meetings. This communication is pivotal. Know that I will help guide your project from start to finish—through all required consultants, planning and building department reviews. I’ll even assist you in finding a contractor who will be a good fit for you and your project and I’ll be by your side throughout construction, to review progress, design intent and shop drawings, and to answer any questions you might have along the way. To start the conversation about your project, contact me today!
