How do I choose a commercial architect?

Before you start looking for an architect – write a brief. Outline your project goals, requirements and project budget to manage expectations and get the most out of early conversations with potential architects.

Create a shortlist of architects to approach and interview them.

Depending on the scale and complexity of your project you could consider a limited engagement in the form of a feasibility study. This is an opportunity to test a working relationship with a new architect before diving in to a bigger commitment for the whole project.

What is the difference between residential and commercial architectural design?

The predominant differences lie with the technical and regulatory complexities specific to the typology of the building. For example, a work/live commercial unit, a house and a hotel all accommodate residents but need to meet different Building Regulation and planning requirements.

Successful architectural design, whether residential or commercial, creates a positive impact on the environment, people that occupy the building and the community that experiences it.
