Why should you hire an architect to design your home?
The architect is the one professional who has the education, training, experience, and vision to guide you through the entire design and construction process.
Architects typically propose solutions that add visual appeal and design for function, flexibility,and timeless designs which adds extra value to the building. Simply put, well-designed homes which have greater satisfaction and resale value over the life of the home.
Architects examine and integrate in their work important factors that no one else will. Such as daylight, personal needs, spatial maximisation, natural ventilation..etc. Architects are constantly balancing complexity and aspire Excellency. Simply I would say architects actually design a home not a box/building.
An Architect can help you create and focus your dream house into a built reality.
1. Utilisation of space & aesthetics
We know the ins and outs of how to design a structure that reflects your dream and also efficiently works in the given space providing the best use for entry/exit, parking, electrical, utilities, landscape, and all the other factors that most people wouldn’t consider before beginning.
2. Fewer expenses.
Designing your home with an architect is not expensive. It is a small fraction of the cost of construction and can bring the cost of construction down in the long run. The architect can steer you away from unnecessary expenses and can foresee costly problems in construction. Along with fitting the building into the site provided, architects work to position and manage the project and keep expenses in your budget. That includes strategically planning for utility costs for the present and for years to come.
3. Creative use of materials.
An architect can help you choose materials and finishes that are durable as well as beautiful, saving on frequent maintenance and replacement costs. An architect always consider eco-friendly options for appliances, lighting features, and energy efficient structural designs.
4.Interpersonal skills, psychological understanding and ethical practice
An architect can understand you, like your personality, style and so, an architect can print all of it in the design.
5. Know what you are getting before building.
Clients will experience the design progress by:
- Virtual reality
- 3D drawings
- Interactive designs
6. An Architect is a licensed professional.
You may have to live in a house all your life, so you should realise that only a good design can make your house in to a happy home. Also think that you are not wise enough to know what you actually want and you can’t find a plan that really fits your needs in a plan book or online.
