Questions to Ask Before Hiring an Architect


It’s important to ask your potential architect as many questions as possible to ensure they are the best fit for you and your project.
  • What is your design approach or philosophy?
  • Why is this your passion?
  • What is your timeline for architectural services and what is your backlog?
  • Have you worked in my area and are you familiar with the architectural review board, zoning board, and building department?
  • Can you show me examples of your work that are similar to my upcoming project?
  • What is your fee structure?
  • What level of detail will be provided in the drawings?
  • What are the clients responsibilities for the project?
  • Do you have contractors that you work with for this type of project that you can refer?
  • What are unknown circumstances that could occur during construction?
  • What are the options for architectural services during the construction phase

A good architect will listen closely to your answers, help you solidify your goals and desires, and translate them into a home that reflects your lifestyle. Look for a good listener and you will find a good architect.
