What our clients say about us and our work

In addition, Rice and Associates demonstrated a high capacity of imagination! Lastly, any potential client could except this firm to be accommodating and communicative!”

Project Price: more than $100,000

"Phillip 6949"Colleague

“Randy was great to work with. He listened to my ideas, shared his ideas and incorporated them into the drawings for every meeting. It was a very collaborative working experience. He sent us three contractors to interview and we were very impressed with each one. He solved problems of an old house and helped transform it from a duplex into an extremely comfortable, cozy and modern beach haven! We love it and couldn’t be happier!”

Project Price: more than $100,000

Calvin PiperClient

“Randy Rice was our architect on our house. We bought the property with plans from the original owner. We took the plans and made the house more contemporary and energy efficient with Randy’s expertise. We wanted a low maintenance beach home. Randy guided us through the many options. We have recommended him numerous times.”

Project Price: more than $100,000

Rene HambrockClient

“Randy Rice has worked on several projects for my clients and he has provided excellent insight and knowledge regarding our local market, the City and County building codes, and local HOA restrictions. Great work, bright ideas and a beautiful end product!”

Project Price: more than $100,000

John HolbrookColleague

“Rice Architect provided a comprehensive design service for an ocean-front home. Although our house is very traditional in concept, the Rices have designed contemporary homes in the vicinity that are great for the beach. They are a pleasure to work with and made every planning visit enjoyable. Some on-site problem-solving was ingenious, very practical and tremendously helpful. I recommend them highly.”

Project Price: more than $100,000

"11791179"Client

“Rice Architect designed our home in north Florida over 4 years ago. We started, quite literally, on the back of an envelope, with only general ideas about what we wanted. The project was further complicated because we lived many hours away, and had to rely on phone calls and visits. Rice Architects earned our trust immediately, through their open and frequent communication, willingness to listen and, above all, their ability to translate our often-vague thoughts into a beautiful and livable home. We often tell people that even four years later we would change nothing more than the placement of a few odd electrical outlets. We love our home and we recommend Rice Architects wholeheartedly.”

Project Price: $10,000 – $49,999
