Frequently Asked Questions

How do Architects Charge?

Architects generally charge on percentage basis or quote a Lump-Sum amount for the entire project depending on whether they are just designing, supervising or managing everything all together. Some architects also charge on a per sq. ft. basis, where the amount goes from 10-100 rupees per sq. ft.

What does the cost include?

The cost of the architect includes the detailed plan in 2D or 3D of the entire project. The architect provides detailed drawings, landscape plan, flooring and lighting ensemble, reference images etc. Basically, the entire layout in detail is given by the architect to the client.

What do I need to provide?

Architects mainly need their clients to have a clear picture of what they want and expect out of the professional in their head. If they keep on shifting their structural views, it is very difficult to establish a professional relationship with the architect. A clear, firm position on what they need and trust in the architect’s creativity is all they need to put in.

What are the general complications that occur during a project?

The layout on paper or the architecture drawing is very hard to copy by an architect because of several practical complications. There are government and environment specific guidelines to be followed by the architect, which can lead to a minor difference during the execution of the project. Also, clients should be creatively flexible. Sometimes, their requirements aren’t practically possible and they should understand that. The cost exceeding the budget can be a hassle, but the client should always keep a margin of 5-10% extra for additional changes.

How much time does the project take?

Building a general model of about 2-3 floors takes around 9-12 months, wherein the planning process and designing takes almost a month to finish and the construction takes about 10-11 months. The time for renovation projects is decided after viewing the site itself based on the architectural plan. As per people’s choice, the architectural design might be modern architecture or contemporary architecture.

How can I reduce outside noise in my house?

Tell your architect to brief you with Sound Absorbing materials such as acoustic ceilings and padded carpeting which make up the modern day architectural engineering. Sound-blocking curtains, solid doors and double glassed windows are great ways of reducing the noise inside your house.

How can I make my house more environments friendly?

Use ore of Energy efficient equipment while remodelling your house. Demand for good insulation at your homes, which will curb energy wastage. Ask your architects to indulge in Sustainable architecture. Probably, you could hire an architect who specializes in Green Architecture.

What is the design process?

The process generally starts with meeting the architect and planning the structure of the project. After the layout is frozen, the engineers and technicians come into play and work on technical things, catering to their respective niches. After resolving the technical stuff, the contractors start working with the construction under certain supervision. Interior designers, who have expertise in home architecture, finish up the project using their insight into architecture and design.

Hiring Guide For An Architect

Finding the right Architect

An Architect builds you something for the present, with an awareness of the past, for a future which is essentially unknown. Hiring someone to build a dream can be extremely nerve-wracking but we help you step on this ladder by connecting you with the best Architects around you, so that you get the best hands to place all your dreams and aspirations into. Architects can turn your imaginations and desires into visual realities, keeping in mind all the practicalities associated with the project. You just cannot hire ‘anyone’ to build on something you’ve craved for all your life, and thus we serve you with the best professionals who are willing to understand and work for you. You can choose your architect based on the kind of work you want them to be involved in, the area you would like them to build or renovate, or specifications you’d want them to work upon according to your budget and needs. You can also look up for supervising architects who’ll help you manage your ongoing project and take loads of your shoulders.

Know what you’re looking for

It is very important to decide what do you need an architect for and what tasks do you need to get done by them according to your budget. An Architect basically designs a layout in 2D/3D giving you an idea of what your entire project will look like. After that, you get to decide whether you want the architect to be involved in the entire project or not, if you want him to supervise you once in a while or if you want him to lead the project with his own team of engineers and contractors. Architects can also be involved in remodeling a particular area and some of them also specialize in Interior Designing.

What space needs to be built/renovated?

Architects specialise in fields, based on what they’ve majorly worked on before. Broadly they specialise in the kind of projects they’ve undertaken i.e. Residential, Commercial or Retail or the specialization is based on the kind of Architecture, such as Building, Landscape or Green Architecture.

Architectural design around you (Chennai)

Chennai has a very hot and humid climate due to its closeness with the coast. Free circulation of air is a must in houses, and thus architects need to take care of good ventilation systems. Chennai is classified as being in Seismic Zone III, indicating a moderate risk of damage from earthquakes. Base isolation and Vibration control technologies can be used to lower the risk of damage. Also, Chennai has been vulnerable to floods and thus, Flood proofing should be done to protect the house.

Setting the right expectations

We promise to connect you with the best professionals in Chennai that in turn provide you first-class service. The entire project cost and expected time for completion of work can be talked about with the professional itself. You can review and compare quotations, before choosing what’s best for you.
