The Benefits of the Local Architect

With population growth, the drive and demand for the design of refined homes and regional property developments has investors and private homeowners understanding the benefits and value provided by the engagement of local architecture firms.

A local practice knows the council regulations, idiosyncrasies, land regulations, climate, landscape diversities, historical significance – essentially the lay of the land and how the wind blows.

Knowing who to work with, knowing who not to work with…is something of great value that anyone who’s been through the building process could attest to, and may likely still bear the scars!

It’s often perceived, being a regional architect, that there’s a limited scope for ingenuity. I like to think we bring a global perspective to design with the incomparable value of an on-the-ground understanding and connection.

We understand the environmental contributors, population placement and urban development drivers. We know what it’s like to live in the area in real time.

It’s in the best interests of the owners to have someone navigating the on-site complexities. Good relationships with builders mean that issues can be raised and rectified quickly on-site.

Architecture is ultimately about its occupants and its context within a community, urban fabric and natural environment. The local architect understands this well, lives it and thrives in the local context.
