This is what our clients and colleagues are saying.

“We chose Ment for the design of a modern cabin in early 2020 after interviewing 4 other firms and I couldn’t be happier with our choice to work with Adam. My wife and I had been dreaming about and planning a modern cabin build for the better part of 5 years, and the final design exceeded our expectations. We had a tricky site with a steep grade and several views to maximize, which posed some unique design challenges. We also had a fairly well defined style we were looking to accomplish . Adam and the team listened and applied our desires while also pushing back (respectfully and where necessary) in an effort to produce a better end product. The result is a design that checks all the boxes: it nailed the style we wanted, it is achievable within our budget, and meets all our needs for livability. A+ for the design.

I think equally important to the design is the process we took to get there, which was super fun and stress free. Adam did a great job of managing the process and every interaction with the Ment team was positive. They were great listeners and communicators, feedback was welcomed, and they were excellent in managing timelines (only delays were my fault). Overall, Adam and the team went above and beyond to make us comfortable with the process.

I’d recommend Ment to others and hope to use them again on our next project, whatever that happens to be.”

“I chose to work with Ment Architecture knowing that the design and execution of my kitchen overhaul would be done beautifully. From the beginning to the end, working with Ment was smooth and uncomplicated.”
— Fairlight Fitzgerald


“Ment Architecture made the whole process of remodeling my kitchen easy, removing the headache of making every tiny decision and the fear of choosing elements that weren’t functional for my daily life. It’s now my favorite room in the house — thoughtfully designed, beautiful to look at, and still very me. I now hate every other room in my house. Thanks a lot.”
— Leslie Harter


“Adam and the Ment team were a joy to work with! He helped us through of first experinece in designing and building a home, and turned our disorganized thoughts into a beautiful and brilliant design that fit us perfectly. Adam walked us through every bit of the process and we had a wonderful experience. Highly recommended! ”
—Patrick Grainey


“It has been fantastic working with the Ment team on the remodel of our 1906 home. They understood exactly what we were looking for in the remodel and we could not be happier with the plans they created for us. They were very responsive to our comments and questions along the way. I highly recommend them for anyone looking to remodel. ”
—Molly Jackson
“Solomon is fantastic to work with. From initial design meetings through construction of our new home he was focused and attentive to both the functionality and design elements we desired. They understood what my wife and I were trying to accomplish with our custom home build from day one. We had an absolutely fantastic experience with Solomon during the design and construction phases and in the end were provided with a home that truly exceeded our expectations. Solomon cares and is a true professional through and through! We love our new home.”
— Jimmy Severson, Stafford Residence


“The team at Ment had a great vision for use of the space on this project. Adam brought multiple, complicated pieces together to form a beautiful, cohesive space. The plans were thorough, and communication was easy. I look forward to working with Adam and his team again.”
— James Oellrich, Otis Construction


“Adam was professional and patient, explaining things step by step and what his function would be in the process. He understood exactly what I needed and provided it. I would highly recommend Adam Lawler to anyone who doesn’t know where to begin or who to trust as well as anyone who knows exactly what he wants but needs a professional to execute it.”
— Carole Hayashida


“Adam is a superb designer and really enjoyable to do projects with. I have collaborated with Ment on a number of projects and watched Adam's design work for almost a decade now. He leads a great design process, first trying to hear what his clients needs and dreams are, then turning that into a clean, modern, fun, and enjoyable place to live or spend time. I recommend Ment for any project you care about.”
— Spirit Meller, Sanct Architecture


“Solomon Berg designed from start to finish every aspect of our cottage build. It was a challenging project as it was necessary to match the 1905 architecture of the main house and he was able to integrate modern features in an antique build seamlessly. We couldn't be happier with our warm and inviting cottage and credit Ment Architecture with a keen eye and discriminating taste. We wholeheartedly recommend the work of Ment Architecture.”
— Rea Berg


“ The team at Ment is made up of dedicated professionals who desire to bring your dream to reality. Working with them was an enjoyable experience and we loved the way they pushed our design forward to create the home of our dreams. If you want a team willing to listen and then execute your vision, Ment is the best choice! We love our home and it’s because we worked with Ment to achieve our dream! ”
— Hilary Severson


“The complete remodeling of our home was an enormous and daunting project. Thankfully Solomon brought incredible insight, expertise and style. The entire process was a joy and we could not be more pleased with the outcome.
— Jenni and Gerald Griffin, Westwood MCM


“When our company began considering a remodel of an existing building for our catering production kitchen and tasting room, we immediately became overwhelmed with the potential obstacles of architectural documents, the city permitting process and needing design advice grounded in the current construction trends. Adam jumped right into our project and worked with us on the front end of what our exact needs were (we felt confident in the initial phases of schematics, space planning, finish selections, but lacked knowledge on everything else), and built a process around what we needed. He took the lead when necessary and was gracious when we had preferences and specific desires for our final product.

We felt confident with the exhaustive and thorough research he did on the necessary building codes, and he helped usher the plans through the painful permitting steps- he and his team were so fast and responsive when changes needed to be made. Upon breaking ground he continued to remain attentive to our project when on-site questions arose and giving us guidance when unexpected building dilemmas happened (which they always do!).”
— Wil & Kris Hansen


“Very professional, competent and knowledgable in the architectural area which my client needed assistance in. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend or hire this firm again!”
— Art Pavlenko, Enko Properties


“Adam designed our house and involved us from the very beginning. He is a good listener and really came up with a design that met our needs and our personalities. In the initial design, he helped us with even the smallest details so that all of the decisions were made before we started construction. He did a great job of coordinating with the engineer, landscape architect, permitting and our contractor. Communication is a priority for him and he always called us back promptly whenever we had any questions. He is very professional while still being friendly and a pleasure to work with! ”
— James Lawler

“Adam has a rare combination of superb design chops and organizational skills that allow him to execute beautiful architecture! If you are thinking about working with Adam, I can't recommend him highly enough. ”
