How do I decide which quote to go for?When asking for quotes from professionals, our experts recommend giving as much information as possible. “Architecture is a service-based industry, so anything that affects the amount of time taken to do the design work will affect the cost,” Lydia says. “Anything you can do to define the scope of the architect’s involvement, the risk, and the complexity will assist with providing a fee.”“Remember that cheaper doesn’t necessarily mean better value. You need to be sure you’re comparing like-for-like,” Chris says. “My own practice’s fees tend to be at the upper end, as we provide a comprehensive package of services, and I often have to point out to potential clients that lower fee quotations they may have received from other practices do not include the same scope of services.”Chris recommends you establish details such as how many layout options you’ll be presented with, what level of design detail will be included, and whether you’ll have an experienced architect or junior working on your project. He also suggests asking how closely the architect will be involved in the building work and how often they’ll attend site meetings.Tell us…Are you planning to use an architect for your project?

A picture window provides a pleasant view of the garden and a little reading corner for the children. A frame of 40cm-deep cupboards surrounds the window and gives the impression that the glass protrudes into the garden. Two sides of the inner frame are natural oak, while the other two have been painted white. Congdon explains, “The L-shaped seat invites you to lounge from the right-hand side and benefit from the best view of the garden.”
