Hiring an Architect

Ever driven through a production style housing development? Then you already know why it's important to hire an architect.

Over time, production housing has had a catastrophic effect on the quality of residential architecture. In short, this style of housing made it possible for anyone to create designs and layouts, the result of which was a lowering of the bar.

Architects use interpretive and conceptual skills to create architectural solutions to spatial problems. They find the most effective method for housing families. They use a variety of techniques to achieve results based on their understanding of space, volume, light, texture, shape, style, details, materials, and the emotion of home.

Architects know how to use the principles of design to resolve the needs of client, present the quality of living, or elicit a desired response. It's not impossible for an amateur to achieve the same results, but it's less likely.
