What an architect can do for you
Architecture is an ancient profession, but the role of architect has constantly changed and evolved. It is surprising how many people today are unaware of the full range of an architect’s services. Giving practical examples, Sarah Khan will demonstrate both when an architect’s input is helpful, and what the reasons are for employing an architect. Referring to recent projects, she will illustrate what benefits an architect can bring to your home. She will also explain the practicalities of doing work to you house and how an architect can help with challenges, ranging from creative design solutions to applying for planning/ listed building/ building control consents as well as managing construction on site.
How an architect can add value to your project
What is the value of a home that allows you to live longer? What is the value of one that sets the stage to enable the environment for our children to last? What is the value of a place that promotes an uplifting flow of space and light that engages with our wider worlds? The talk describes how 1st Age to 3rd Age living, low energy and beautiful places can be created to give legacy at the intimate scale with existing and new buildings.
Where planning permission is a definition of viability and possibility, Paul Vick architects bring you a 100% planning permission record with new build and listed buildings and those in conservation areas. The talk illustrates with case studies.
