Investing in your own home is a huge undertaking. However, with the right planning and careful decision-making, it’s possible to achieve something remarkable that will bring years of satisfaction and comfort. A lot of people dream about a certain kind of home with different features, but few take the plunge and retain the services of a professional to help them achieve their goals. Architect-designed homes in Melbourne – like everywhere else – come with an air of prestige and quality, so why don’t more people engage with a professional from the beginning?
At BY Projects Architecture, we have practised as home architects in Melbourne for over 30 years and also have direct building experience. We have spoken with countless people in this time who lamented the fact that they didn’t work with a residential architect when they were designing their home. It’s very tempting to accept plans that are readymade, particularly when you lack time, or believe that you don’t have a flair for design. The truth is, with a great professional team by your side, you can often achieve more for the budget that you have and end up with something completely unique.
We strive to make the process of creating your ideal home fun and exciting throughout. Our clients are at the heart of everything that we do and we go to great lengths to meet their needs and deliver on time and on budget.
There are many reasons that a lot of people who could work with an architect choose to take the quicker route to have a home built within the budget that they have. The most common reason is that they believe that the cost of professional architecture services will eat into their savings. Architect designed homes suggest that a lot of money was involved, but the reality is that whatever the available budget was set at, that’s what the architect used as the basis for every decision.
Finding the best materials, securing superior workmanship and making creative decisions are all things that a great architect will handle, and in line with what you want to spend. You can actually achieve a vastly more impressive home through this process and make your budget appear to have been a lot larger based on the finished product.
You’re not just paying for the team here at BY Projects Architecture to draw a bunch of plans. We have a wealth of experience and expertise across a huge range of areas from site selection to market research, design and documentation, construction management, coordination of consultant team and post-contract administration to name but a few. Your money goes very far in our hands.
Those who believe that they don’t have time to work with an architect should think twice about this. An architect can determine the fastest way to achieve the most efficient route to completion. Given that we can offer total project management services, this streamlines the entire process and minimises the need for multiple points of contact.
At BY Projects Architecture, sustainability is something that we are very passionate about. We can achieve carbon zero buildings for those that are keen to live in completely green homes and our material selection as well as low-energy fittings and fixtures will enhance the design. Sustainable practices during construction are also factored in.
So, before you rule out architect-designed homes, contact the Melbourne Architects team that can afford you the home of your dreams. We look forward to discussing your future home soon.
