The Best Thing About Being an Architect is…………
The thing Nicholas Waissbluth from W/A Office loves about being an architect is, that every project is different. Every client should really
understand that the architect, designer and builder work as a team on a project. Together all three consults come up with the best home design for the client. What are the needs of the clients and how can the design reflect their personal style? That is another reason why Nicholas loves being an architect because he can work with different consults on each project that all have their own unique approach. As well as he gets to work with different clients with contrasting needs. Being an architect is a career that has a lot of variety.
How Does an Architect Renovate a Heritage House?
Architect Nicholas Waissbluth from W/A Office is working on a renovation of a four thousand square foot old house. What him and his team have done is taken an old side-by-side house that is about one hundred years old and gutted it from top to bottom. They have even lowered the basement and underpinned it. They have taken it right down to the studs. Nicholas and his team brought this house back to life for a new family of four. One thing clients have to remember when they are renovating a heritage house, is there could be constraints. Depending on what city the home is in there could be different rules on what the client needs to keep in the old house and what they can get rid of.
How Does an Architect, Contractor and Interior Designer Work Together?
How does an architect, contractor and interior designer work together? The architect, interior designer and contractor combined make one team.
A client should never separate these as three individual consultants. The client should also hire all three at the beginning of the project. The reason for this, is so all three can tackle the structure of the home and all the tiny details. All three people can be on the same page to avoid any mishaps when building or renovating your home. If the builder is on board at the beginning of the project they can actually tell the client roughly how much their home is going to cost. The builder can then be honest with the client on how much materials are. These are important things the client should know before their home is renovated or built. It’ s so important to have a home built or renovated without any huge problems or stress.
