The Architect, Your Home, Your Project – Getting PersonalJanuary 17, 2014
Before any plans are drawn for your renovation, addition or a new-build, sharing your dream starts the process. From that point it only gets more personal. Helping you realize your vision means understanding some of the intimate details of how you live your life day to day, on special occasions, what’s important to you, and what is not. An architect will be in areas of your home not often shared with people outside your immediate family to take detailed measurements, pictures and other documentation. This full understanding contributes to an architect’s ability to lay out a space or series of spaces for a successful outcome.
Before you communicate your vision for the perfect bath or describe your family’s habit for eating at the coffee table, it’s important to feel comfortable with your design team. Trust is crucial when selecting and working with an architect. You want to be confident that your privacy will be respected and your wishes honored. The best design teams have thoughtfully considered all of your expectations and even your apprehensions of being in the private spaces of your home to make your vision a reality.
Knowing you and your family’s life, spending time to understand your design aesthetic, and working with you to create functional spaces, are all part of what we do at Slocum Hall. Get to know us better. After all, designing your home is best when we get personal.
