The Architectural Edge

The architectural edge

The start of a residential project is the blank canvas that architects and engineers seek to create inspired and imaginative blueprints.
And yet, these are areas of expertise that also come with the responsibility of ensuring longevity and safety of the structure, functionality and practicality in the design. As a potential homeowner, you’d be wise to demand a well-planned construction that incorporates all these key attributes. Also, spend time checking out the way the square footage is allocated across common living areas, individual bedrooms, bathrooms, balconies and even storage.
Pay greater attention to the quality of materials used in the construction and check for reputed brand names when it comes to fixtures and fittings. Also, look for energy-efficient features like, for example, insulation and windows as these can add comfort even while they reduce utility costs. Remember, energy-conscious homes are also, as a natural fallout, environment-friendly and financially prudent.
When going through the brochures of potential apartments, don’t skim over the specifications section. You’ll be surprised how much you can learn about the builders’ business ethos and quality mandates through the structural elements they don’t compromise on.
Take the research a step further to the areas where softer architectural features can be looked into. The quality of paints, finishes, colours, cabinetry, woodwork, tiling. Do these touches reflect your taste and preferences? Will the result live up to the commitment? Is what you discussed what you get? Are there going to be any last-minute surprises? Ultimately, will your home foster creativity, be conducive to relaxation and provide the ideal environment for family togetherness?
Finally, look at the exercise as a whole. Include the landscaping, the driveways, the parking facilities, the common recreational areas in your overview. When you live amidst flowering plants and lush lawns, when driving into your parking space is smooth and easy, when you join neighbours on a walkway for an evening stroll, you know that the word architecture has a lot more dimensions to it than you first imagined. You need to be involved in the micro aspects and invested in the macro intention – from the time the idea begins on the drawing board to the time it stands tall on terra firma.
