It can feel impossible to find Coimbatore’s best architects, and many don’t want to actually work with design professionals in the first place. But when you want to build a luxury villa, or commit to a renovation, it’s vital to actually take the effort to get the best possible design on the market, that will outlast incoming trends and help your luxury villa investment be worthwhile in the long-term.
So let’s look into some common myths and bust them so you can make an educated decision.
Myth #1. Architects Only Work on Commercial Projects
Residential architecture has a strong presence in India, but many people only ever see it in commercial buildings, such as offices, apartment buildings and even government buildings. The reality however is that there are many architects that specialise in mind to large size homes, and a whole different set of architects that build villas exclusively.
This is not the case in all countries, but India’s incoming tourist trends and rich history means that there is a large scope of design history to explore and people to design for. So don’t think architects are only for commercial projects, your villa will be in safe hands with them also.
Myth #2. An Architect Does it All
Some people think that clients are able to both design and construct the home. This is a common misconception. In reality there are some companies that specialise in doing everything, as in they hire the architects and the construction workers to make it happen. This doesn’t mean architects themselves handle the building, so if you just hired an architect, all you’re getting is a design, not the build itself.
Myth #3. Architects Are Crazy Expensive
Don’t get us wrong, architects do cost a lot, but often it’s a price that is fair due to the specialised craft and the investment is what sets apart a regular home with a luxury space that is considered little details that set it apart.
In reality the architects fee depends entirely on which firm they work with (and how large and well known this firm is), or if they’re freelance, and then include the size of the project, the area the project is based in and the amount of work overall. This is why designing one office will be cheaper than designing a whole apartment building with ten apartments within it.
The real issue is finding a fair price for an architect as some will overcharge, and others will undercharge. The best way to get to this fair price is to ask around and find who is offering a price that matches the work they’re doing.
Myth #4. An Architect Takes the Lead & Makes Decisions
A truly great architect knows how to work as a team. They know that they may be the professional, but they are not the homeowner. So they won’t force you to choose their ideas, if there’s something you want, they will work alongside you to realise your vision in a way that is manageable within your end budget and the local resources.
That being said, as a homeowner, you also need to keep an open mind. Some things may just not be practical within your budget or in the area you’re building in, so be understanding of the fact that the architect is a professional and everything will go smoothly.
Myth #5. Every Architect Is the Same
There are many different architects in the Indian market. This includes traditional architects that work with local craftsmen to make traditional homes to modern architects, to those who specialise in hybrid solutions and others who do it all. The idea is to do your homework and find the right people.
