“Gi is a true professional and it was a pleasure working with her on this project. From the beginning she was clear and concise as to the various services she could provide to help us reach our goal. From concept to design; planning, permitting, and actualization to realization, Gi was there. She delivered on what was asked and promised on time and to complete satisfaction.”

This is our 6th project in San Francisco and our first time working with Gi. After this experience, we plan to work with her on the next and future projects. She has been fantastic and has helped us identify the best way to work with the city, our GC and most importantly, deliver our project on time and on budget. She has been a pleasure

“Working with Gi was such an enjoyable experience. Not only did she produce creative designs for the store, but she was also very innovative in designing practical solutions for our small space. I was extremely impressed by her dedication, resourcefulness, and utmost professionalism throughout the entire process, all the while maintaining a calm and pleasant demeanor. I highly recommend Gi for design needs and will definitely work with her again in the future. ”

“It was a great pleasure to work with Gi. She balances a killer skill-set combination: both an architect and a designer wrapped in one. We greatly appreciated the individual and very unique feel all of her spaces posses. Gi listened to our ideas, understood our desired feel, and helped us realize the vision for our first restaurant, Maven. She focussed efforts towards the larger picture, and helped us find creative ways to stay within budget. Furthermore, Gi was the critical force that moved our project through the city permitting process and cut through much of the red tape. ”

— Jay Bordeleau, Maven.

“Gi Paoletti is simply amazing. She was my designer, and project manager. I respected her talents and expertise, and trusted her to be my advocate. Anyone who has gone through any remodeling project must know of the high anxiety and drama that goes with that experience. Gi took great care to insure that every detail in the planning and construction of my remodeled home was of the highest caliber. Gi is extremely professional, talented, creative, and a stickler for details. I would recommend Gi over any other designer in the business”

— Sophie Rheinhelmer


“Gi is an extraordinary designer. She presented me with ideas that I didn’t know were possible. Most importantly, she executed them with an impressive level of precision and professionalism. She has a great eye for design. Furthermore, she was very good at negotiating with the city and helping to navigate and expedite the building plan approval process.”

— Steve Velardi

“Gi, is a very talented designer. She is very determined and works hard and expects no less than from those she works with. I had the pleasure of working with her and her team on a project in San Francisco and she was right there working along side us. I found this determination and passion a great asset for any team. In her role as Principal of her own design company I also have no hesitation in recommending her work to any client/owner who may be looking for a designer. For as I said previously her determination and passion ultimately was for the client and providing the best design possible.”
