Quote of the Day

Architecture is really about well-being. I think that people want to feel good in a space… On the one hand it’s about shelter, but it’s also about pleasure. Zaha Hadid

Invest in your architect

Architects can add value to your home through their design expertise and experience. While Architect’s fees are often more than Building Designers and Draftspeople because we are never simply ‘drafting a set of plans’. Architects spend a significant amount of time working with your brief and refining the finer details of your design. We invest a lot love and pride into your project to find the best design solutions.

Hiring an Architect. Registered or unregistered?

Would you trust the construction of your home to an unlicensed builder? I’m hoping the answer is NO. After graduation, architects need to go through an extensive examination process to become registered. Engaging a registered architect will give you the reassurance you have invested in the best design professional for your project.

Provide a detailed brief

The more information you provide to you architect the better the design will be to suit your individual requirements.
