Only a very small percentage of new houses are designed by architect directly. Most people buy readymade house plans, or in the case of more complex situation, they contract a construction engineer who looks more on technical aspects of the design than the appearance of the building. The most valuable asset the architect can bring to the project is his creativity. Even if you have a well-developed sense of aesthetics, an experienced architect can bring interesting ideas which you have never considered. Such creative input into the design can change your home from a purely functional to a truly exceptional. But it raises a question, whether the individually designed house is not an unnecessary luxury?
If you find a ready-made house plan, which meets almost all of your requirements, you will definitely save some money (typically you would save around € 2,000 compared to an individual project) and you will also save some time that is required for completion of such a project (usually 2-3 months). In this case, it makes no sense to think of an individually designed house. However, if you cannot find such a house, or you're looking for a unique house, feel free to contact us. We can help you design a house tailored exactly to your needs!

Why do we name houses with letter and number code?
Letter in the name of a house represents its basic floor plan shape I, L or O. Number in its title represents the approximate area of all rooms in the house. When there is the number "2 -" before the number code, it means that it is a two-storey house. Thanks to this naming you will know directly from the house name the most important information such as its shape, size and the number of floors.
