Why Hire Antenora Architects?
"Architecture" isn’t only for museums, corporations, and the very wealthy. Whether you are remodeling a kitchen, creating your dream home, or planning a commercial building, working with an architect can save time and money while making your new environment more functional, comfortable, and sustainable. The result is a project that is beautiful, original, and distinctive.
The challenge lies in knowing how to communicate with your architect in ways that will enable you to get the most from this special collaboration. You and Your Architect, a pamphlet provided by the American Institute of Architects, can help you to do so—personally, professionally, and creatively.
Hiring an architect could be the best decision you'll make for your residential or commercial design project. If you've never worked with an architect, though, you're likely to have many questions. Antenora Architects understands this and is here to help you get through the design process. We've come up with a list of questions to help you get started. Feel free to add to this list before our initial meeting.
What is AIA, and why should I choose an architect who is a member?
The American Institute of Architects (AIA), founded in 1857, is the professional organization for 80,000 licensed architects and associated professionals. With headquarters in Washington, D.C., and some 300 state and local chapters worldwide, the AIA helps to build public awareness of architecture and supports the practice of architecture.
In addition to meeting professional standards for licensure to practice architecture, AIA members adhere to the AIA Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct, assuring clients, the public, and colleagues of their dedication to high standards of professional practice. AIA members must also fulfill annual continuing education requirements to maintain their professional standing and to stay current in the profession.
Building in today’s marketplace is a complex undertaking requiring many different products and skills. Antenora Architects understands these complexities and works with you to design an appropriate response to your requirements.
