Architect/Designer Selection

PAtio

Rather than be confined to one design style, we assist our clients in selecting a local architect or designer that we feel is the best fit for their project. There are several architects and designers with whom we’ve developed strong and trusting relationships.

We’ve found that the selection of the architect or designer generally comes down to three factors:

  • Design aesthetic or portfolio of past projects. While the architects we recommend are able to conform to any particular architectural style, it’ll be clear after looking at their portfolio that they have a passion and skill within a specific genre.
  • Fee structure, which ranges with the scope of work that is expected from the designer.
  • The architect’s rapport and personality.  Clients often comment after making their selection that the chosen architect “just seemed to get it” or “understood how we live.”

Tim Hensley is involved in the design process with the architect or designer and in all design meetings to help keep your project on track and within budget.
