Why Hire Bert Lemke, Architect, Seascape Design?

Creative design is Bert Lemke’s specialty. As an architect, Bert Lemke is trained and experienced to solve problems in a creative way. With a broad knowledge of design, engineering, construction, and building / zoning codes, Bert can show you alternatives and options that you might not think of on your own.

His Services are a Wise Investment!

Simply stated, Bert Lemke’s detailed design and specifications can save you money and increase the value of your project.

A well-conceived project can be built more efficiently and economically. But even the best ideas will evolve and can change. As ideas evolve, changes can be made on paper at much less cost than later when construction is underway. Thorough drawings also make it easier for the building contractor to estimate costs and to build your project.

Energy efficient buildings can save money on energy bills over the years. Bert always considers the site characteristics and solar orientation. Windows will not only take advantage of views but will maximize the solar gain, natural light, and ventilation. These important design factors reduce your energy costs over time.

Bert can help you select materials and finishes that will be beautiful, durable, and within your budget. Bert keeps abreast of advances in a full range of materials. By selecting apporate and durable materials you save on maintenance and replacement cost in the years ahead.

The Most Important Reason: Good Design is Worth More!

In the end, a beautiful, practical building is worth more. A well designed home promotes harmony and pride of ownership. A well-designed store or restaurant draws customers. A well-designed work environment attracts employees and increases productivity. Invest wisely, hire Bert Lemke to design your project.

Comments from past Clients:

“Bert,  Both Pat and I are extremely pleased with your preliminary design.  We really like the way you separated the public space from the private space and angled the public space toward the ocean view while keeping the private space and garage/workshop congruent with the shape of the lot. 

Now that we have a preliminary design that we both love, we are very excited about moving on through the rest of the design process.”

Tom Clarke, Home Owner 

“We had major remodeling done on our house and I wanted the world to know that Bert Lemke of Seascape Design did a great job designing our second story addition.”

Gilbert Tanner, Home Owner

Hi Bert, It has been a while since you put plans together for 251 Condor Avenue.  We really loved how the additional family room turned out and the larger dining room.  In fact, I hate to leave the house, but we are moving back to San Luis Obispo.  In any event, before we moved on I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the work that you did.  It turned out wonderful and made our house a joy to live in.”
