The design of a private house holds a very special place within the domain of Architecture. It is the most personal building an Architect will undertake shaped to suit the Client, therefore, to be a House Architect requires thorough, personal understanding of the Client. Free from the constraints of other building types, the Architect and Client can create a unique home centred purely on the Client’s desires. There are many celebrated examples of private houses where the design freedom offered has resulted in ground-breaking residential Architecture.
A thorough briefing is vital before a design is commenced. The Client’s detailed requirements for spaces, design preferences, materials and lifestyle must all be discussed. The site must be properly assessed for views, aspect, privacy, ground slope, services provision. The Client’s budget is a critical element that must be continually reviewed to ensure any design can be realised.
Our designs are developed with close Client involvement. Preliminary concept drawings are refined gradually through a series of meetings to gain Client feedback. Effective communication is critical during this process.
As the design is being finalised with the spaces and building forms developed, the details of the interior and external finishes receive more attention. Functional layouts of Kitchens, Bathrooms, etc. are prepared utilising our interior design skills whilst building cost options are continuously reviewed.
