The role of an architect in a design project is as an enabler. This way a client, with the help of their architect can project their own personality onto the spaces that are created.
In a building project this can manifest itself in
many different forms:-
• In terms of the layout it is configuring the spaces
in not just the most efficient way but also the most
impactful. For instance, this may mean introducing
single story elements with high ceilings and roof
lights for the most important rooms.
• For the style it is designing projects that are specific
to a clients tastes. This may mean designing a
project that is either ‘modern’, or ‘traditional’, or
a variation, or combination of both.
• Realising the full impact of a building project is
achieved by using high quality materials and
architectural details that enhance and add
character to a building project.
• And finally to achieve the desired results contract
administration and a 3d model are a vital part of the
process. This is the point at which a 2d design
transforms into a 3d design, which is translated
through oversight of a builder into reality. The
ethos of 3dr architects.
3D Models & CGI’S
The computer generated image as well as a walkthrough of the 3d model that is used to create the image on the computer will give you a complete picture of what your project will finally look like.
"Could not find fault with Jon's work. His work is of a very high standard and was always there to offer help and advice. He worked very closely with us on the initial design, offering ideas that we did not think of and we were very happy with the end result. He comes very highly recommended."
"I have worked with Jon on numerous residential projects in the Thames Valley area, from house extensions to new build development. Jon has a great eye for detail and produces really useful 3D visual images to help picture the proposed development."
"Engaged Jon for a single story rear extension who provided design ideas, compliance expertise and produced drawings as required by my builder and the local building control folks. Throughout the engagement I found Jon very easy to work with; he adopted a consultative approach and was very flexible and pragmatic. A fairly straight forward project which certainly didn't stretch Jon's expertise, but I'd be happy to recommend him based on my experience of briefly working with him on my project"
"I used John for a project of coming up with a design of three houses. His dedication to the project and interaction with me was above an beyond. He always listened to my ideas and never brushed any off. He was very meticulous and dedicated to the whole project."
