Damn the architect

Category: Barn Conversion Journal February 26th, 2007 by mbc

Having weighed up the pros and cons over the past few months of employing an architect in a ‘full service’ capacity we’ve decided to go it alone.

It’s not been an easy decision and is at least in part driven by the fact that I’ve not managed to find anyone who is able to offer this type of service in the locality of the barn. That meant that travel expenses were likely to be a sizeable cost and time-on-site would be minimal.

These may well be famous last words, but I resent the potential cost and loss of control that a third party managing the project may mean.

So we’ve done away with the architect and gone green….

I’m not sure that the barn resembles any kind of bird’s nest, but I do appreciate Roger Deakin’s words on the beauty to be found in the ordinary.

I’ve been a fan of the designer Dieter Rams and specifically his Vitsoe shelving for some time.
