I agree with the first two answers, to contact planning and zoning, because if the area is not zoned for multi-family you will not need an architect.

Good luck.

Your first step should be to consult with an architect. They will be able to answer that question precisely. I can recommend several with excellent references. Feel free to email me directly at afurst@elliman.com

Your best bet is to speak directly to the local building dept, they will guide you accordingly. Typically, the area has to be zoned for the change.
