Finding an architect who can draw up plans to your liking is not easy. A good architect has a combination of the following things:
Can draw to meet DOB code
Can draw in a timely manner
Understands spacial relations and how they effect people
Understands passive solar gain and cooling
Designs around your needs
Here are the plans I had drawn up for 22 2nd street. The actual house is going to turn out different than these plans on the third floor since the plans show very bad passive solar gain design on that floor.
