What merit is there in paying architectural fees?
There are several merits to using an architect when building your house.
- You can get help to make your dream house.
You might have a lot of ideas for your house but there aren't many people who know precisely what they want. So first, we take time with all members of the family to understand clearly what each member wants.
- You get many surprising ideas.
An architect proposes many ideas till your needs and wants are met.
- We ensure good value.
Architects ensure good value because they check the builders detailed quote very carefully. Usually by doing this, you can reduce the price by as much as half the architectural fees.
- Someone will keep an eye on the site.
The finished plans are only halfway to your dream come true. We check the site to make sure that the builders are following the drawings exactly.
How is Higashijima Architectural Studio different from others?
We specialise in designing houses for families with small children.
We believe that humans, especially children should not live in a box. A「Box」is a house that has been designed by piecing together the rooms required like a jigsaw puzzle to form the plan. No matter how good it looks, or how great the materials are, it will never be more than a box.
We believe in nurturing children's natural sensitivity and abilities. We design houses that allow families to live together happily and be healthy in mind and body. We would be more than happy to help families interested in this kind of idea.
Can we consult you about insurance and finance?
Yes. We can help with 10 year home insurance, soil insurance, land insurance, construction insurance, getting finance, as well as solar panels, energy efficiency and high level insulation.
Can you offer advice on selecting land or help in finding land?
Yes. Please feel free to call or email me to make an appointment.
