Everything You Need To Know About Working With An Architect
There are several design professionals who can help create your dream home, but none quite like an architect.
In Australia, architects require both bachelor’s and master’s degrees, followed by mandatory practical experience, and only those registered can lawfully practice and use the title ‘architect.’
So why are architects so important? Not merely concerned with aesthetics (although they’ll take care of those too), an architect is responsible for ensuring your home’s sustainability, functionality, orientation, and circulation. They won’t just take your instructions and turn them into a floor plan, they’ll analyse and interrogate your every request to ultimately form a better home.
