Working with the Cicada team is nothing short of inspirational. Their creative energy, innovative thinking and passion for thought provoking, yet functional design produces stunning projects. They understand the importance of project organization and managing workflow, which seamlessly guides their creative concepts to reality. Each partner brings a unique facet to the business that genuinely enhances the architectural process, and we enjoy working with such a forward thinking, kind team.

The team at CICADA are definitely the best architectural design firm I’ve dealt with in New Orleans. James and Seamus worked on my Uptown restaurant/bar project. From day one to month six, 100% professionalism, they were fantastic through the whole process. Every step was clearly communicated and executed. The company is clearly technologically ahead of their competitors. From 3-D printing to aerial drone mapping, they do it all. James provided stellar 3-D renderings of the project that definitely helped get me to where I needed to go. Last note, their handling of some of the more bogged down bureaucratic permitting is artistry. Overall, fantastic experience and I look forward to using CICADA on my next project. These gals/guys are the future!!

I have worked wit several area architects and Seamus McGuire is by far the best, he is open to ideas, patient with the process and efficient with his work and turnaround time. He is experienced in both residential and commercial projects as well as the permitting and zoning restrictions related with different neighborhoods and parishes. He and his firm are my go to for personal projects as well as for my clients.

Received a 3d printed throne from G.O.T, after winning a contest on social medias. It was perfectly crafted, and shipped over to my office in Dallas,TX. Cicada’s team is really detail oriented and their reactivity is the best. I highly recommend their services ! Great job guys !!

Russell Olschner

Seamus has been incredibly helpful through our permitting process. He is quick to respond, helpful, and knowledgeable. He was able to submit information for the permitting process as fast as I could get it to him. The plans are beautiful and guys at Cicada are very professional. Looking forward to the next project!

My husband and I recommend Cicada for renovation planning! James understood what we wanted to accomplish and planned exactly as we envisioned it. He was efficient in his work - from our first meeting to final plans. We are quite satisfied!

Kathy Braud

Seamus helped us with a design for our outdoor kitchen and we love the finished project! Great to work with, really listened to what we wanted and gave suggestions that we didn’t think about to make our project even better. Absolutely recommend and will use again for any future home redesigns!

Having worked on multiple commercial projects as a consultant with CICADA I can say they are very professional and deliver a clean final product that takes into consideration all the end users needs. They are very easy to work with at all levels. It is always enjoyable working on a team with them.

David Paternostro

I won a 3D printed Iron Throne from a CICADA instagram contest! Such a brilliant and unique opportunity for their followers, fans of GoT, and anyone interested in 3D printing. They did a masterful job successfully replicating the throne. It's a work of art! If you need anything 3D printed look no further.

Jordan Lambert

James and Adrienne helped me and my wife with our residential construction project providing excellent design and structural recommendations. Their constant availability, expert knowledge, and genuine care for the outcome of our home made us feel like we were always in great hands. Highly recommend these talented individuals and the entire team.

Very professional, creative, and personable.

I can not say enough great things about Seamus and the team at Cicada. From the first meeting on our plans for a two story addition on our home Seamus made sure to go through the entire process with me step by step. Every question always answered, every detail explained. They worked together with my contractors to make sure that what I had envisioned came to life. The whole experience was so exciting and I felt more than comfortable knowing they would take care of all my needs. We are beyond thankful to the work that was put into our project and I am more than confidant anyone else would have the same amazing experience we had.

Patrick Fess

Worked with them on several projects. A refreshing take on architectural design and digital fab that is both poetic and tech-savvy.

Troy Sehlinger

The finest 3D imaging and printing I have ever seen! Met with these guys and girls to pick up my 3D print of the New Orleans Superdome and it was INCREDIBLE. Their studio is silmutaneously professional and entertaining. They are fun to work with and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for architectural or 3D printing work. Thank you Studio Cicada!

Very helpful on project I am currently working on. Excellent at explaining things in laymens terms when needed. Love their speed of response on any questions. Definitely look forward to using them in the future.

Aaron Frumin

I had a chance to sit with the Cicada guys for podcast interview for The Swarm and had a great time chatting with them! Seamus & James bring a real passion for the built environment and the various communities that we build amongst one another within it. It's really refreshing to be part of the energy Cicada brings to the industry through their projects & relationships. Keep it up!

Elizabeth Howard

My husband and I really enjoyed working with Seamus to design a 1st floor media room, bedroom, bathroom, hallway and stairwell. He helped us think through the potential for the space and how we wanted to use it. He came up with multiple options for creating as much useful storage space as possible. His drawing was invaluable when we began the build-out. It was super helpful when communicating with our GC and even the plumber.

Sam Solomon

Great experience working with Cicada. They did some renderings for me, and were quick, accommodating, and reasonably priced.

Lauren Ferrand

As a colleague and fellow designer, my experience in working with CICADA has been inspirationl- Creativily and professionally. I enjoy working with one of the few progressive firms in the city.

Jackson Aucoin

What a cool place with an amazing team! I am an architecture student at LSU and came across Cicada in my suggestions on instagram. I immediately followed them and haven’t regretted in for a moment! I love their podcast “The Swarm” as well and fully recommend it to anyone looking for new audio material. I actually had the great pleasure of meeting one of the head honchos, Seamus McGuire, himself! This came about after I entered to win a 3D model of the Plaza Tower on their instagram and actually won it! Seamus was so kind as to meet me at Cicada on the weekend to let me see the studio and collect my model. I was beyond excited to do both! The work they do and the attitude they do it with speaks for itself! Check this place out!
