Imagine Architecture P.C.The Process...

Hiring An Architect:

When planning any type of extensive renovation or new home construction project, an Owner should always consider engaging with an Architect to provide Architectural Services whenever possible. Your Architect has the intimate knowledge and is uniquely trained for how to work with Contractors throughout the construction process. Architects understand the implications of what the construction process requires and are able to facilitate a well-built project for the most reasonable cost. continue reading more...

The Values of an Architect:

He/She is professionally trained to successfully blend your desired style with its time-placed functionality, organizing proper spacial sequencing for experiential continuity, and finally maintaining the overall aesthetic quality of the project. continue reading more...

But Owners, who have hired Architects, benefit from their quality control throughout the entire design process.
