Things to consider
Finding an Architectural Designer who can bring your vision to life is a critical step in your exciting journey. Here are some things to consider when choosing and approaching an Architectural Designer.
Create a Brief
Collect your key requirements like bedroom and bathroom numbers. Think about how you would like to use the space and the flow of living areas. Are there any architectural styles that inspire you?
Be it your builder or designer source partners for project that can demonstrate quality craftmanship. Ask to see examples of their previous work and references. Getting this right from the beginning can save time, money and heartache
It's a big investment. Make sure when selecting and architectural designer that you feel comfortable to approach them about anything. A strong two way communication relationship will ensure you can work together to produce an amazing result.
Know your cost upfront. Some Architectural Designers will charge on a percentage of the build or hourly fees. It is essential to get fees in writing clearly setting out the responsibilities of each party. Knowing the fee upfront can avoid nasty surprises.
