Praises From Our Clients

"His [Bart’s] work is excellent, he is very friendly, knowledgeable and conscientious of his customers' needs and I would recommend him to anyone looking to hire a high standard, honest professional for their project."
"Throughout the process, they [DZN Partners] were very receptive to the specific design elements I had in mind, and provided expert guidance and direction for details that I would have never thought of…Overall, it was an amazing process and I cannot say enough good things about my experience with DZN Partners."
"Both our jobs were completed on time, in big part to DZN [Partners] staying involved through the entire approval and construction process. Bart and his team are very full of cutting-edge architectural and design ideas. They know Encinitas building codes, backwards & forwards."
"They [DZN Partners] were very adept at blending local codes and guidelines, along with our design feature and functional requests. They listened well, provided thoughtful inputs, and together we iteratively reached an optimal design."
"DZN [Partners] was a great firm to work with during the whole process, the results were way over what we expected and we consider ourselves very fortunate to have been guided by such a wonderful architect…I would highly recommend DZN Partners to anyone."
"Not only does DZN offer great Architectural design they also offer all the professionalism and promptness I desire for smooth projects. If you have any Architectural needs you should reach out to DZN [Partners] to see what they can do."
"OMG! You just made my day. Thank you so much for all your help and guidance on this. Hooray! Cheers, Dave Clark"
"Bart Smith & DZN Partners were FABULOUS!! Beyond thrilled with the end product. Bart listened to our needs, designed an ADU/guest house that fit perfectly on our property, and was extremely knowledgeable about new laws & ordinances for the city of Encinitas. Highly recommend Bart and his team. True professionals!! Jennifer and Zachary Taylor"
"I am very impressed with DZN Partners, and the job Bart Smith & Marisol did on our Cardiff by the Sea home. Their attention to detail, communication, and timeliness in getting our job done was very refreshing to see!. DZN Partners also implemented architectural ideas into our plans that we didn't even think about which made our finished remodel so much more awesome! Bart's years of local knowledge with the "City Departments" got our permits approved very quickly, which enabled us to hire our General Contractor and start our project sooner than later. If you are looking for the "BEST" Architectural firm - look no further, DZN is 2nd to none! Thanks again Bart & Marisol; I will be referring you to everyone in need of your great services.
