Opening or relocating your commercial space is such an exciting time for business owners! We not only provide the design for your space, but we are also connected to the area’s best and most efficient MEP Engineers. We specialize in helping business owners get their space open as quickly as possible.

Remodels / Renovations / Additions

Let’s face it, the Tampa Bay area is running out of room for new homes. What that means is, you can make an investment on your current home by remodeling it or adding an addition. We can tell you what is structurally possible or advise you on the return of investment for your neighborhood.

Customer Says

Unlimited Revisions

In the 20 years we’ve been designing homes, we’ve never been able to design the home of someone’s dreams in 3 tries. We offer unlimited revisions because we want to be able to explore every possibility for your space and eliminate the ones that just don’t make sense. Better to figure out there’s a design element you don’t like while we’re working virtually, instead of once construction begins!

Expertise

New to all this? Not to worry! We are here to help and answer any questions you may. Our team has been in the architectural and construction industries for decades, we can answer any question you may have about the possibilities for your home and location. We provide renovation feasibility analysis, an assessment of the home, as well as provide architectural insight into the homes potential.

Fast turnaround

There is no waiting: We offer free consultations and same-day proposals. Once you move forward with Bellevida, we guarantee to get you on the schedule within 2 weeks. Once we get started, we work at your pace. We can move from design development into documentation phase in as little as 30 days.

FAQ

Why do I need 3-D? Does this make your services more expensive?

We design your home virtually from the ground up. What this means for you is that you’ll be able to see and explore what your home will look like with every available design scenario for your space, long before a dime is spent in construction. The average change order in the field (once construction has begun), is at least $2500 and will delay your project for days or weeks. When working in 3-D, we can eliminate 99% of change orders that could occur; because we’ve already discovered what works and what doesn’t. We will virtually walk you through your space with specifics; down to the paint colors, exact floors, artwork on the walls, and your furniture. We take all the guess work out of what your space will look like at completion.

How much do your services cost?

For residential remodels, renovations, and additions:

The cost for our services depends on the complexity of the project and the total scope of work. Our minimum fee for this type of design work typically start at $3,500. Our pricing includes unlimited revisions, permit-ready construction documents that includes architectural and/or structural engineering review.

For a custom home design:

We charge an upfront design fee, as well as an additional square footage fee for the completion of the construction documents. These documents will be used for permitting, costing, and to hand over to your builder. The price for custom home design with architectural plans includes unlimited revisions, architect/engineer review, HVAC sizing, energy calculations and optional professional interior design services.

For light commercial tenant design:

Costs for light commercial tenant design begin at $2.00/sq ft. Special requirements, such as MEP, are charged separately (but not always necessary).

How long does it take to get my plans?

We work at your pace. However, plan on spending 30 to 90 days in design development. We offer unlimited revisions, so the design development stage doesn’t stop until you are 100% in love with the design. Once you’ve approved your design, your permit-ready construction documents will be delivered within 2 weeks.

Why should I chose Bellevida Architectural Design over a “design-build construction firm”?

When you work with Bellevida, we will design you a one-of-a-kind home, addition, or commercial space. Your home or commercial space will be uniquely designed to your needs, lifestyle, tastes, and budget. You own the plans which means you can shop your drawings around to any contractor in town. When you work with a design-build firm they own the plans—even though you have paid for them.  If you don’t like the final price they give you to build your project then you’ll have to go somewhere else to start the process all over again.

How long after you complete the architectural plans will I be able to live in my new home?

If your project is a brand new custom home plan on 12 months from the day we start design to the day you move in. For a major remodel or large addition plan on 8 months.

Why should I chose Bellevida Architectural Design over less expensive drafting services?

The simple answer is this: we are not drafters. We are residential designers and provide a unique service that no one else offers in our area. We provide exclusive 3-D design, virtual tours, and our level of expertise and creativity spans 20 years and began in the construction industry.

What’s the difference between architects, residential designers, and draftsmen?

At Bellevida, we are not architects. We are residential/architectural designers.

Architects are degreed professionals that are licensed through the American Institute of Architects (AIA). Many architects do not provide residential design. They typically specialize in educational, institutional, and large commercials spaces such as; schools, banks, malls, and high-rise buildings.

At Bellevida Design, we are residential/architectural designers. We are also degreed professionals, but we are certified through the American Institute of Building Design (AIBD). We specialize in all aspects of residential design and commercial spaces that are 4 stories or less.

Draftsmen are individuals that prepare working drawings for architects and designers. They typically hold a certificate in drafting technology and are limited.
