Time vs Quality vs Cost Diagram

10  SEPTEMBER  2018

This diagram has been prepared as part of educational resources for homeowners we have put together to assist in the early stages of project thinking.

We suggest to our clients to view your budget as an investment to add value to your home and your future life rather than starting with a shopping list of what you can buy.

Investing in the design and preparation stages of your project may take a little time and money, however the results will speak for themselves and as you move forward with building your project, excited and confident in the tailored design and the accurate price that high quality design and documentation will allow.

Inspiring visit to 1940s built glass house by Phillip Johnson in Connecticut during Mike's summer holiday to the East Coast.

A very forward thinking and experimental piece of architecture for its time, so well connected to the landscape and views.

 

Maintained in its original state the pavilion is swelteringly hot in the summer as there is no solar shading to protect from solar gains.

JULY  2018

We have been looking at feasibility proposals of a very interesting building that is currently a derelict shell in Leyton, working with a potential developer.
