john fleming from r-b-f was our architect and he did such a good job that our kitchen made it into Northwest Homes & Gardens Magazine! he has a truly uncanny ability to figure out exactly what you are looking for and be able to put it on paper.
our house is a 1908 craftsman and, among other things, we wanted to remodel the kitchen. he made sure that the kitchen looked updated but still maintained good "flow" from the older parts of the house. and the outside is flawless - you'd never be able to tell that there's a 'newer' part of the house. he's also strong with recommending materials, fixtures, etc.
one more thing of note - his office somehow got all of our permits in hours instead of weeks - they know what they are doing, know who to contact, etc. amazing.
