I recommend Danny Chia for the following reasons:
1. he's local, knows the codes & already does properties in BH
2. he's also a structural engineer so you won't get charged extra for that
3. he's an independent so you don't pay a firm's overhead for him
4. he works mostly for contractors so he can help you identify a great local contractor
5. He's done 4 projects for me & I love his work.

for a 1 room addition I paid 3-8K
for a redo of an internal layout (moving structural walls etc) I paid 5K
contact him at danicemail@aol.com

I am a certified interior architectural designer and a luxury realtor in Beverly Hills. I am a bit of a unicorn in these parts. I have worked with architects, engineers, construction contractors and more. Just in Beverly Hills alone, I have worked on several projects such as new construction and major remodels and additions. The average cost of plans is based upon the scope of services that a client requires, the schedule in which the work is to be completed, and the project’s complexity. The fee based on a set of guidelines and each project fee is unique and is determined based on a client's specific project requirements. If your requirements include items outside the typical realm of plans such as creating photorealistic or hand drawn renderings, building models, and making significant changes or value-engineering a nearly complete architectural design, additional fees will be added. There are one hit wonder firms and developers that recycle the same home plans over and over again if you are looking for a quick, soulless but relatively inexpensive way to go. But be wary, no two lots are exactly the same.

Around $120,000 not including structural engineering services.
Schematic Design, Design Development, Construction Documents, and Construction Administration.

No one can answer that because of how many variables there are in potential design. I would get some recommendations for architects and then interview 2 or 3 to see who fits your needs best.

You should call a local contractor and they will give you a quote. There are no contractors on this site. Just send me an email if you have any further questions.

Your best answer will come from an architect.
Costs are based on many factors.

Please contact my architect, Cheryl Williamsen with Paradigm Design at 714-381-3459 Or email her at CWilliamsen@ParadigmDsn.com She works all over LA & Orange Counties & beyond.

She has been an architect for about 32yrs for all types of properties, flat land to building into a hillside. No architect can tell you a 'flat rate cost', it's all going to depend on what exactly you want to build. (main house, guest house, etc) She does do 3D-CAD designs as well.

Shoot me an email directly, if you'd like to talk about it further, I don't look back on this same Trulia posting for answers after mine or Replies beneath my answer.

Without wanting to sound silly, I think you'd get much better numbers if you call architects in Beverly Hills!
