This is the 3rd Scheme starting with a simple massing layout. Architects, if reasonably experienced in contrasting and studying spaces, will have the ability to compose a beautiful house. The Architecture practice is very broad. One can specialize in Architecture Design, Interior Architecture, Cost Estimates and Construction. In our practice in the Philippines, most clients do not make distinctions between these specialized fields and assume all architects are the same. If a client desires good design, he should look for an Architect with a background in architecture design.
Most people take for granted the role of architects. It is easy to take the shortcuts for a cheaper price, yet the long term benefits of peace and joy of beauty is priceless. Anyone looking at investing their hard earned money is wise to work with professionals. There is an assumption that architects do their drawings luxuriously. It couldn’t be closer to the truth. We take the time to consider with the pen and all available technology to use the carpenter’s rule “measure twice cut once”. We do the thinking because when the construction starts and specific decisions are not made or considered, it translates to gigantic expenses.
