I worked with 2S Design LLC on a fairly challenging site in West Seattle for two contemporary new single-family residences with a number of site restrictions, terrain and utilities challenges, plans versus on-site differences, pandemic delays to name a few! Yuri and his team worked through it all diligently, working across surveyors, architects, city inspectors, Geo-tech, civil/structural engineers, sub-contractors patiently and took care of all the details down to last nail before their hand-off to eventual buyers - while keeping it all with-in agreed upon budget. I also deeply appreciate a number of valuable suggestions and updates, Yuri provided to improve upon the original plans to get the maximum value from the limited space available. We are working together already on our next project and will highly recommend them for projects of any size and complexity.

I am Eric C Johnson, president and CEO of Four Seasons Properties. I have been in construction, property
development, building, and project management for over 40 years. I have worked with several Architects,
Project Managers, and Permit Specialists who undoubtably have contributed greatly to my success.
Recently, I was fortunate enough to work with Yuri and Elina Samarkin, first as an Architect-Permit Specialist and then subsequently in a Design Build capacity. Yuri and Elina Samarkin bring a youthful and fresh outlook to this field with extraordinary marketable designs with energy and a work ethic that is greatly lacking with other firms. They immediately grasp the concepts I am wanting to achieve in my projects. Their communications with me are friendly and prompt, as well as thought out that shows their depth of experience. The few issues I have been asked to comment on were delivered to me plainly and swiftly. They exude confidence in dealing with design and engineering problems, as well as working with permits and inspections. I never have to worry about the project as it progresses. I am planning on using their skills and expertise for all my future projects.

2S design provided exceptional service from start to finish. Patiently iterated through our multiple requests to revise the proposed drawings. Hand held us in choosing material and configuring engineering options that resulted in a very accurate estimate. Very good planning and communication which kept the schedule on track. We will definitely use 2S design again in the future.

The 2S team did an excellent job remodelling our house. They came up with the new color scheme, picked the materials for the floors & cabinets in the kitchen and helped pick out the art & a few new furniture pieces. They set the creative vision yet were always listening to our feedback and super attentive to our asks and needs. The project was on time and under budget. Would highly recommend.
