Working with an Online Architect Means Being in Charge

“Architecture starts when you carefully put two bricks together. There it begins.”

—Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

Wouldn’t you agree that the quote above applies to just about any undertaking, no matter how overwhelming. You break it up into simple steps and pay attention. You take charge and… “There it begins.”

Hello, my name is Alla Kazovsky. I am an architect whose life is a never-ending DIY project. A DIY fanatic convinced that it’s more fun to take matters into my own hands, I am an advocate of all with the same mindset — I offer online architectural services to DIY home improvement enthusiasts.

I came up with this idea as I was taking a walk in a new neighborhood, we had just moved into. I was thinking of a landscape designer I had interviewed years ago for my own garden and how I ended up doing it myself. The same was true with a pool designer. I can’t resist it. After consulting the experts, I do it my own way. And then I thought: this can be my niche!!! I can be an architect on demand and provide services online.


It comes naturally; I have a nurturing streak. As a mother, I acknowledge my daughters in all of their creative pursuits. As an educator, I urge risk-taking and challenge my students to push beyond their comfort zone. And, as allaDIYally, I incite fellow DIYers through advice without strings.

Most of the time, advice that you get is closed-minded; it hinders. “Too many cooks spoil the broth.” Self-reliance is best. But still and all, if there is a chance you can benefit from a second opinion or need some practical tips related to space-planning issue, for instance, — I am your ally. Ability to consult with an architect lets you have peace of mind. You can afford $50. I am at your service. No strings.

Actually, if you read my book DIY Like an Architect, 11-step method before contacting my virtual architectural office, your first consultation is complementary. I believe this how-toBOOK can be very helpful; it is based on the method I developed while teaching architecture for over 15 years.


Clearly, when it comes to your projects, you know better than anyone — don’t let them tell you otherwise. To bolster your resolve, you can always turn to your online architect! = architect on demand. Guru. Coach. Teammate. Think of me as a resource. We can brainstorm together. But you are in charge.

    While working on my house remodel I needed access to architectural services. However, I did not want to hire a traditional firm because I’ve had several bad experiences in the past. Serendipitously, I found an online architectural office. After the initial consultation, I realized that Alla Kazovsky is a professional I can work with. No contracts, no time wasted. We communicated when there was an issue I needed her help to resolve. Very efficient.

    1. Michael, it’s mutual!
      It was a pleasure. You are a great client! Always succinct, to the point, very focused. I loved the way you worked out the issue of «productive home office!» I hope you use my online services time and time again.
      Best, Alla Kazovsky — your architect on demand.

    I searched for an architect online for a very long time. Finally, I came accross! Alla is a true creativity coach. She supported me during our kitchen remodel. Thanks to her advice and inspiration, I have a new and improved place to perfect my culinary skills. My husband and children are delighted.

    1. Dear Emily,
      I am so happy to hear about your accomplishments. The most important thing when you set out to design something is to have a clear vision of what is it that you desire. Defining your parti is a critical first step — a way to get started. All of the subsequent decisions depend on it. You did that like a pro!!! Good job.
      Have fun creating!
