HOW DO I FIND THE BEST ARCHITECT FOR MY DESIGN PROJECT?
It is best to hire an architect who will be involved in all phases of the design process, from the initial concept through to the completed construction. The architect is often the first person you will hire for your project and may be involved in negotiating contracts for all involved participants. For these reasons that it is extremely important for you to have a good relationship with the architect you hire. He or she can be the tie-breaking vote between you and the general contractor and can be your biggest advocate during the construction process. Each architecture firm on our panel of architects in Cape Town provides different services, approaches and styles. The scope of the work can span from pre-design environmental impact studies to selecting furniture and finishes, depending on what your specific needs are.
WHAT SORT OF PROCESS CAN I EXPECT FROM AN ARCHITECT?
The architecture firm that you choose will start with concept drawings and finish with construction drawings and specifications. Some firms will design with 3D renderings and videos which are extremely useful tools, but that should not be assumed and is generally an extra. There should be plenty of meetings between you and your building designer until you have agreed upon a design that you are completely happy with. Always keep in mind that the designer will have building regulations to follow, and likely pre-existing design limitations when dealing with a remodel, so while they might not be able to execute your exact ideas they always have your safety and aesthetics in mind. One of the most important duties of an architect is to serve as managers and supervise most aspects of construction, as well as facilitate communication between all other contractors, so you can expect them to be present throughout the entire building process to ensure everything is executed as planned. Please note each service has its own charge and your requirements should be discussed and agreed beforehand.
It is very important to hire the right professional for the job. Remember that the most well-known or established designer might not provide the best architectural services for your needs. It all comes down to the individual project and the relationship between you and the architect. It's important to have an idea of the style of house architecture that you prefer, as well as the amount you would like to spend. Architects in Cape Town are natural problem solvers. They will assess the entire situation and help you to solve your problems too. Don't settle for a single company too early. Call and interview a few. Make sure that you feel like your personalities will mesh well and that you like their professional perspective.
