What is a Townhouse?

What are the steps into designing a home?

There are 8 basic steps to design a house. Any project takes about 6 months to one year complete on an average.

1. Research

The first step is always a thorough research. Designs, type of house suited for your location, budget and architects. And here is where homify steps in, we offer you a chance to get in touch with the best designers and top architects.

2. Choosing the architect and the designer

The architect builds the layout plan and site analysis, while the designer decides how to style the building. homify offers professional of world talent.

3. Site analysis

The next step is to analyse the site on various aspects. Make use of the professionals to consider climate responsive design and site specific variables, orientation, cool breeze access, solar access, views, overshadowing by landforms, trees and buildings, slope, soil type, bushfires risks, stormwater drainage, access and transport and other services.

4. Design contract

After all the considerations are done, we move on to discussing the fees charged by the professionals. We come to terms with them on the budget. Then a contract is signed by the client, architect and designer agreeing to all the terms being discussed before.

5. Conceptualization

This involves developing a concept for the building. The designers will interview you and offer sketches and designs with all the required structural detailing. This includes the structure, shape and size of the building structure.

6. Design development

The development is made on top the conceptualized blueprint. This development is a small scale model of what and how the house is going to look like. The client can view and give feedbacks on the model and also apply some changes to the model if necessary. This comes in many shapes, 3D renderings, or actual models are built.

7. Final design

This is the work of a civil engineer who can sketch out the plans in a very empirical way.

8. Deployment

The final act is to deploy the design into real time with builders. This is where the real work starts as the builders need to stick to the plan without any deviations. They will be supervised by architects and designers regularly to check on the progress of the work.

As you can see, it is a task that needs a lot of work. Let homify help you.
