With ‘renovate and improve’ on the up, the Royal Institute of British Architects has made its industry services accessible to everyone: proceeds to to Shelter.
RIBA have launched Architect in the House, a fundraising initiative in conjunction with Shelter, offering the public the opportunity to create their dream home.
Melissa Porter, presenter of I Own Britain’s Best Home, is supporting the initiative and believes “architects can help homeowners unlock hidden potential in their properties.”
Architect in the House is the opportunity for homeowners to discuss design changes to their home with a tope RIBA architect. Architects nationwide give up their time for free to offer hour-long consultations to the public, in return for a £40 suggested donation to Shelter.
Melissa Porter continues: “Many people think architects are only for the rich and famous, but Architect in the House is a fantastic way to show how we can all benefit from their advice. Today’s high property prices mean many people can’t afford to move, but a little help from an architect could help you create more space, add value to your home and allow you to enjoy it for years to come.”
Sunand Prasad, President of RIBA, says: “We often know our homes need changes but how to start and what will it cost? It can be daunting to take the plunge and many of us simply never get around to it. This scheme is a great way to speak to a professional about design potential and discover what works best. And thanks to the architects generously giving up their time, Architect in the House is a great way for the profession to raise money to help people struggling to find a place to live.”
