Michelle helped my wife and I do a *massive* remodel on our 1926 Mission Revival home (all bathrooms, entire kitchen, 90% of the floors, new plumbing, major electrical work, and even some minor reconstruction among other things). She managed to balance maintaining it's original charm and integrity of style while significantly modernizing the interior, all on a super tight schedule as we were about to have our first kid. She has a truly remarkable aesthetic sense and guided us towards a house that is maximally functional while including many thoughtful and compelling style choices, particularly in the fixtures, storage access, and tile work choices - she even consulted a bit on furniture recommendations. She has a network of trusted craftspeople and was very sensitive to working with our budget. If you want an architect that has an A+ palate for interior recommendations you can be confident Michelle is a great choice.Read More

I highly recommend Michelle Anaya Architect! She was the architect and interior designer for our home addition and remodel. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome. She totally transformed our dated house into a bright, beautiful and charming home! She was easy to work with, listened, and went out of her way to understand our needs. Michelle is a uniquely creative and innovative designer! She is truly a genius!Read More

Michelle has done four projects for me. A home design and remodel adding 2000 sq ft to our residence was how I met her.. She was creative, imaginative and brilliant. The project was completed on time and under budget. I wish I had another home for her to design. I would hire her for any project. I have worked with many architects over the last 30 years and she is by far the best. I also used Michelle to to design and build out three office spaces over the course of the last 8 years. The space sizes ranged from 3500 sq feet to 20,000 sq feet. She is as creative, professional, and innovative with office space as she was with our home design.Read More

It was a pleasure to work with Michelle on the design of a new home in Manhattan Beach, California. She is an extremely creative and talented designer with fresh ideas and a unique focus on details. Michelle was extremely dedicated to the project, she was a strong participant from design through construction. She was on site to make sure every detail was expertly executed. The final outcome was a huge success. The home is exquisite!Read More
