Constructing a new building from scratch can be quite overwhelming. You have to deliberate on the building’s design, roofing materials, paint color, and air conditioning system, among other critical aspects.
Safe to say, this is not a one-person job.
While architects create the building’s design, interior designers enhance and complement its beauty by using appropriate furniture, paint color, and lighting.
Therefore, it’s always important to have your interior designer and architect collaborate when constructing your building to yield the best results.
Here’s what you need to know:
What Makes the Relationship Successful?
Interior designers, architects, and other crew members must work collaboratively immediately after the project starts. Each individual brings a unique set of skills and a deep breadth of knowledge that proves invaluable to the project.
Having your entire team work together collaboratively allows you to keep your project on scope, on schedule, and on budget. Remember, the key to any project’s success is communication.
So, if one party isn’t communicating or knowingly withholding information that’s key to the project’s success, the project will suffer – the client will suffer.
Naturally, every project has its set of problems. They’re simply unavoidable. Your work as a team is to create a problem-solving environment of inclusivity and healthy collaboration. These two factors are critical to the success of any project management process. Ultimately, collaborative work between your architect and interior designer ensures a positive client experience.
Having your architect and interior design team working together can benefit you in the following ways:
It pays to measure a project twice and order it only once. By working with our architect and interior design team, you get two sets of eyes on your project.
Working collaboratively helps our team at Global Architects to thoroughly review, size, scale, and color your project before starting construction or purchasing anything to ensure everything aligns. Together, interior designers and architects can catch potential issues before they arise. It also allows either or both parties to spot opportunities they might have missed.
● Facilitating Communication
The world of architecture and home construction can be quite confusing for the unskilled. As experienced architects and interior designers, we are used to integrating and collaborating with our projects.
If this is your first renovation, hiring a professional interior designer and architect can be invaluable. Pulling from experience, Global Architects can guide you through the best questions to ask and help you know what to expect. Open communication and regular updates will make sure everything is always on the same page.
● Pooling Resources
Experienced architects build close relationships with suppliers and manufacturers, while seasoned interior designers build relationships with trade partners like antique shops, furniture stores, and other vendors.
Therefore, by pooling connections between interior designers and architects, you can find some incredibly discounted trade rates for things like building materials and artwork.
● Sharing Experiences
Both our interior designers and architects bring unique experiences to the table. An architect can have experience in exterior building designs and other big-picture ordinances. But an interior designer will be savvier in trending flooring, color schemes, furnishings, and other interior elements.
When both professionals work together, you will have a successful rebuild, remodel, or renovation.
