Another factor to consider when selecting surface materials is its durability for the space. Many stone surfaces, like marble, stain easily. Especially when considering bathroom and kitchen surfaces, which endure heat, water, and harsh cleaning products, selecting a material that wont stain or blemish is crucial.
Vertical siding has not traditionally been seen in residential buildings, with the exception of board and batten siding, but it is becoming more popular. We most commonly associated it with warehouses and other commercial property aesthetics, but the overall effect on a home is slick. These modern styles and finishes are becoming more and more popular. Even though it can be more difficult to install which jacks up the price a bit, vertical siding is a breeze to clean and maintain. Play with mixing orientations of the siding, with some sections stretching horizontally and others running vertically or diagonally. It is trendy now, but remember that if you plan to sell the home in the future, potential buyers might not applaud its unconventional look.
An architect will always be trained in building contract law. At the construction stage of your project, it is useful to have a building contract set up and administered by a third party. Its a useful record that helps you to manage all aspects of the relationship between you and your builder. The inevitable decision-making path ahead and discussions regarding payments are all taken care in one big document, before any work has been completed. An architect, who will have intimate knowledge of the design and detail of your project, is perfectly positioned to draw this contract up.
Yet urban architects have often paid scant attention to the potential cognitive effects of their creations on a citys inhabitants. The imperative to design something unique and individual tends to override considerations of how it might shape the behaviours of those who will live with it. That could be about to change.
