I don't think that architecture is only about shelter, is only about a very simple enclosure. It should be able to excite you, to calm you, to make you think. Zaha Hadid
Architects are highly skilled and professionally trained to turn your aspirations into reality. They will guide you through the design, planning and construction process whether you are constructing a new building or renovating an existing property.
Architects apply impartial and creative thinking to all projects be it large or small. They add value, whether from maximising light and space, adding functionality, or achieving the best return on your investment.
“A good architect actually pays for themselves – more than once. You will reap the reward and the building will be hugely better and deliver much better value for it.” Kevin McCloud, Grand Designs
It’s not hard for people to find an architect, what’s hard is trying to figure out which one you should hire.
There are two major paths for making this decision. The first, and most obvious, is the design and second is emotional response.
The most important thing for an Architect is the design, his knowledge and aesthetics and if it echoes with your style and needs.
Architecture is a service industry and an Architect’s personality would play a big role in his/her way of handling and designing projects. Clients should enjoy this process and it is very important to work with somebody who is easy to work with and who understands needs and likes of your family and pays attention to those.
