Before you appoint an Architect
We recommend all domestic clients refer to the RIBA's useful guide, Working with an Architect for your Home, prior to appointing an Architect. This provides a basic understanding of the role of an Architect, considerations and finding and appointing.
Why use an Architect?
We believe that the RIBA say it best - visit the RIBA website to find some further advice, from the professional body who support British Architects and introduce new people to the world of architecture.
We believe it's essential we build up a rapport with our domestic clients, so that they understand our role and really get to know us, whilst we get a real feel for who they are and what they require from their project.
Take a look through some of our domestic projects to get a sense of what we do.
We look to guide all of our domestic clients on the sometimes daunting journey of a construction project, from original enquiry, all the way through to completion.
We follow the RIBA's Plan of Work stages and advise on the processes through each stage, alongside our design input as Architects. The stages are as follows:
Stage 0 - Strategic Definition
Stage 1 - Preparation and Briefing
Stage 2 - Concept Design
Stage 3 - Spatial Coordination
Stage 4 - Technical Design
Stage 5 - Manufacturing and Construction
Stage 6 - Handover
Stage 7 - Use
