The budget of any project will ultimately dictate what can be achieved and it is vital to have this in mind as the design progresses. It is our job to endeavour to design something that is achievable for the client however building is not a precise science and it is impossible to predict accurate build costs from the outset. However, starting with a strong design that is based on simple and robust principals can help ensure that in situation where budget becomes the limiting factor, the project as a whole may not need be compromised. It is important to establish priorities for what you are trying to achieve before you embark on a project.
By using new sustainable building materials and techniques it is possible to significantly reduce the energy consumption of buildings. At a time when energy prices are rising and non renewable resources running out this is becoming a necessity rather than an option. This integrated and holistic approach to the construction of a building not only addresses this need in practical terms but also encourages a more sustainable way of life.
A Clear Brief and good communication
A clear idea of a clients requirements must form the starting point for every project. It is also vital that clear lines of communication are established between client and architect as well as with other consultants to ensure that a brief is correctly translated into a building.
Site Specific Design
A building must be designed according to specific site constraints and opportunities such as views, orientation, physical features, access and circulation. Every building I design is different and I do not have a characteristic design 'style' by which my work can be recognised as I believe each site, clients and brief require a completely fresh outlook and approach to design. Designs are best realised by starting a project with no preconceived ideas about what a building should be but generating a design which meets the brief in an individual and open minded way.
