Why Hire DesignLink Architecture & Planning?

Because of the longevity and experience of our firm, we are extremely familiar with the individual requirements and codes of each municipality throughout Arizona. We pride ourselves on very few corrections during the review process.

Our Philosophy

We consider ourselves, DREAM MAKERS. So many people come to us clutching a photo, saying they want this look or that image.

As INTERPRETERS of style, and we do our best to design our projects to reflect our clients, as much as our own high level of design quality. We kick off the project with a brainstorming session, and we then present the client with 2-3 concepts based on our conversation and their scrapbooks of ideas and desires. Our ideal project includes the building and the interiors, but we will work as a team with the clients' own builder or interior designer.

We feel that we have been able to capture the essence of our clients' dreams, and make those personal visions into reality. We feel we can transform this ideas into reality.

The Process

Unlike other design firms, we are involved from assisting with site selection, through to the final interior design including putting towels in the closet!

The client is in charge of the service they want us to provide:

  • Designlink divides the project into two basic phases. DESIGN and CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTS.
  • Although we offer other services, the client knows where they are in the process.
  • We do not proceed into PHASE 2 without written consent from the client.
  • We are available once drawings are complete, to "hand hold" the client through the entire process.
  • We can specify all elements of the project, including assisting with contractor selection and construction administration.


It is important to understand the Architectural contract. Designlink provides many different services, and those are outlined in our proposal/contract.  We have the client initial and date the items they are contracting for. Clients should be aware that for city permits that Engineering is required.   That is shown as a line item, in addition to the architecture fees. This encompasses electrical, mechanical, structural and civil services.  Depending on the scope of work and the municipality, not all of these services are ALWAYS required.    The client should ask and be aware of what might be charged in addition to the actual architecture and interior design fees.

This is a drone fly over of a custom residential project that is currently under construction. It is designed for a couple in the restaurant business in Prescott. It is on an 18% slope hillside , nestled in the hill, with a panoramic view of the Green valley. The challenge was the steep slope, multiple levels and changing roof lines.
