"Architect Victor Villegas and his team worked closely with us and were very responsive to our ideas and wishes. They provided creative solutions to design a house that lives up to its incredible location and suitable for the ocean-front site. We had to navigate through multiple regulatory issues to obtain permits for building a house on our beach-front property. Architect Victor Villegas was instrumental in communicating with different government offices and finding appropriate solutions."
"Arquitect team did so much more for us than was required or expected. He was truly there for the entire process and remains so. Any problem or issue that has arisen, he has done everything in his power to make right. I would describe him as fiercely loyal to his clients. He is also one of the most positive, optimistic and creative people I have ever met which makes working with him a true pleasure."
"Our challenges were many; documenting damage, developing documents of existing conditions, code compliance analysis and coordinating the design of multiple other disciplines that are part up the renovation effort. As Architects Of Record, the Arquiteg firm is thorough, professional, dependable and a pleasure to work with."
"Their ability to facilitate communication ensured effective and productive team coordination.

"The working experience my wife and I had with Arquiteg's team was a good one from the beginning to the end. They were very professionals: construction drawings and related documentation were always delivered on time; and they responded very well to our questions in a very efficient manner even though we are living in Switzerland."
