I am the Gentleman Architect and I will design your home-
-I will present it to you in a clear and easily understood manner,
-I will help you choose your fixtures and fittings,
-I will present the information to the builder so you will know exactly what you will get and how much it will cost before you sign them up.
Much has changed since I first started working in architecture back in 1985.
My first job as draughtsman hadn’t changed much since the days of Sir John Soane, scratching ink lines off tracing paper and dragging a technical pen through the tiny letters of a yellow plastic stencil, to real time rendering and three dimensional walkthroughs on a virtual reality headset.
The beauty of new technology is that it opens the door for truly authored, bespoke architectural design. Where, you, the client knows that the person you meet at your house, one evening after work, is the person who will design your home, detail and specify it and administer the contract to guarantee that the hand of the author is on the project from start to finish.
I’ve lost count of the number of times I have heard people tell me that the last time they saw the Architect is the day they signed the 'contract’. That will not happen if you appoint ‘The Gentleman Architect’. I approach every job with utmost respect to the client and their wishes, so that each and every design is a work of collaborative craftsmanship which you will enjoy living in for years to come.
