Why Architectural Design?

Architectural design offers numerous benefits to homeowners:

Maximize Space

Architectural design maximizes your home’s space. It considers the floor plan’s layout and flow, ensuring that every square footage gets used effectively. By doing so, homeowners can enjoy a spacious and clutter-free living environment.

Enhance Natural Light

Architectural design increases natural light in a home. Strategically placing windows and skylights allow abundant natural light to enter the house, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. This not only saves energy but also enhances overall well-being.

improve Functionality

Architectural design focuses on the functionality of a home. It considers homeowners’ daily activities and needs and creates practical spaces that are easy to use. Essential areas of the house, such as kitchens and bathrooms, can be designed to be attractive and practical.

Increase Property Value

In New Jersey, architectural design can add value to a home. It helps the house stand out in a competitive housing market, commanding a higher selling price. Moreover, added functionalities, efficient use of space, and improved aesthetics can significantly increase overall property value.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an architectural designer?

Architectural designers (ADs) are building designers who are not registered architects. ADs focus on the design aspect of architecture and may have qualifications in related fields. Plans produced by architectural designers require approval from fully-qualified architects. Some US states have laws prohibiting ADs from designing commercial buildings or structures with more than three stories.

Is an architectural designer a good fit for my home remodeling or building projects?

Choosing between an architect and an architectural designer (AD) depends on the nature of your project. If you’re working on remodeling or constructing a new home, an AD might be the better option. They specialize in blending functionality and aesthetics, ensuring the space is livable and visually appealing. For most residential remodels, a designer or design/build firm can handle the job effectively.
