Rogerseller’s Insights: Taking You On A Design Journey

Rogerseller’s Insights: Taking You On A Design Journey

Building and renovating is stressful. Wanting to bring expert advice on how to streamline that process, Rogerseller takes you on site with architect and client to open up exactly how the process works.

When homeowner and Rogerseller client Damien purchased an inner city Melbourne Edwardian house, his design renovation journey began.

First things first, he needed to find an architect. Finding and appointing the right person for this job is a critical step, as you can imagine. You want to have a working relationship that works well and brings respect for each other and your roles.

Working with an architect and a selection of experts is an important step when undergoing your build.

For Damien, the choice was a bit easier as he has an old highschool friend who runs a successful architecture practice FGR Architects.

“It was fortunate that he knew a lot about me and was able to reflect my needs. I felt that I didn’t really have to go into too much detail with the brief,” says Damien.

What if you don’t personally know someone that’s an architect? Now it’s time to do some more research. Just as you did in the inspiration-gathering phase of the project, this time look for an architect that has already done work that resonates with you.

Once you’ve appointed the right person, it’s time to build up rapport. Don’t forget that an architect can bring maximum design value for your dollar – so make the most of it.

From there, final details need to be decided. This is where the Rogerseller’s insights from a professional team at Rogerseller can help.
