Professional obligations of an architect
The architect is required as a professional to inform and advise their clients to the best of their abilities. To enlighten them as to the physical constraints and planning restrictions of their site; the structural, thermal and acoustic properties of various materials; the implications of one proposed option versus another; to advise their clients on good choice of materials, creation of ambiance and form; as well as how to make sensible decisions with regard to protecting the environment.
The role of the architect
The role of the architect is above all, to listen and understand the needs, tastes, and way of life of their clients. The architect’s job is to help you define your project: to make the best use of the space available, orientation of the site and organisation of internal spaces.
For each project the architect puts their reputation on the line, the satisfaction of their clients being essential.
