Initial Consultation Options

Choosing an architect isn’t easy.

You need the right architect who has the specific skill for your home, and you need the right ‘fit’ between you and your architect.

This may or may not be us!

But in our experience, the best way of finding out whether we are the right ‘fit’ is to fully understand what you are looking for; this is achieved through our initial design needs and options session.

If for some reason we then discover that we are not an ideal fit, then you are free to take the report to another architect for them to continue the process.

By commissioning this initial consultation, you’ll get a licensed architect’s opinion on the feasibility and possibilities of your project, and a set of next steps.

A doctor wouldn’t operate without a proper diagnosis; this initial consultation works the same way. We help you create a strategy designed to understand your requirements, then give you findings and recommendations to move forward.

Option 1—Free 30 minute phone consultation
