This may go down as my shortest blog post ever because really I have just one word to answer the question of when you need an architect: Now. But I suppose you may want more so I will unpack that.
Architects are idea generators. We see the world as it could be. If you have an idea that you feel would alter or change the built environment that is the best time to set up a meeting with an architect. We will help you determine next steps and consider constraints and road blocks that could come your way.
We are connectors. If we do not have the skill set or the resources to accomplish a specific task, chances are we know someone who can. Building projects are a team event and we know the team members who play well together. Architects are often the glue that holds a project together.
We will get your idea out of your head and onto paper. Then we will assist you in moving your idea from paper to planning, planning to construction.
Here is another way to view what we as architects do.
Consider us your first follower, the spark to ignite your fire. We can help you become easy to follow. We will take your vision and give it legs, embrace it and help you get the masses behind you. If anyone has ever told you you’re a nut — that your ideas are crazy — now is the time to call me so I can bring your crazy idea to life.
