Role of architects in building a Home

How Architects play a key role in Building a House:

Architects are qualified and professional designers of constructions. Hence, if you want to build a house, office, or even a hospital, you need an architect. Be it new construction or a renovated one; the architect plays a crucial role in ensuring that your house comes out the way you want it to be.

Read on to see how an architect plays a vital role while building a house:


Any house construction first takes its shape on paper before it is built on the land. An Architects role in house designing is to design an aesthetically appealing, functional, and robust establishment. While designing the house, the architect considers the site dimensions and the client’s requirements to come up with an affordable yet appealing house.

Initially, Architects meet the client to understand the vision and requirements of the client. He also collects the site’s dimensions and discusses the estimated budget with the client.

Concept drawings:

After meeting with the client and agreeing on the terms and conditions, Architects creates preliminary layouts and concept sketches as per the requirements of the client.

Concept drawings are initial raw sketches of the expected exterior and interior structure of the house. Once the Architect ensures the client’s satisfaction, he redesigns the plan and brings an efficient layout.

3D structures:

Before the advent of the latest technology, Architects used to submit hand drawings. But, now, with the help of technology, they are creating 3D structures of the constructions that exactly replicate the original structure.

Suppose the client is satisfied with elevations and layouts. In that case, a structural engineer will be roped in to design the structure of the building, taking into consideration various other factors like load and safety of the building.

Documentations and sanctions:

Every house construction must abide by the rules and regulations of the local authorities and municipal entities to start the construction. The architect is responsible for submitting the ammonia prints of the construction to the local authorities to get it approved and sanctioned for starting the construction.

The construction of a house cannot start until and unless the designs or plans are not approved by the local authorities.

They ensure that the construction confirms all safety standards and other regulations. To design the house within the purview of government regulations is the responsibility of the architect.

Working drawings:

All the above drawings are just abstract ideas of how the house should look like. The working drawings involve each construction detail, including dimensions, electrical layouts, and plumbing layouts.

Details including brickwork, their dimensions, doors and windows, and their positioning, and foundation details are also incorporated in these drawings by the architect.

Some architects work as interior designs too, and in this stage, they take a step further and furnishes the interior designs as well.


Architects play a vital role in every stage of the construction. Before starting, the work is segregated into different sections like electrical, plumbing, flooring, civil work, etc.

Also if you are a architect so make sure your building have a structural warranty that will provide protection against structural defects & covers defects in the building and design of a construction project.

Also you can prefer building warranty is an insurance policy that protects you against structural defects in a new build, conversion, or renovated building.

All these divisions work independently, but the architect ensures that they coordinate to ensure the smooth flow of the work and avoid any mistakes in the house construction.

Regularly visiting and supervising the construction is also the responsibility of the architect. An architect is the only one who has a complete idea about the construction. If something goes wrong, the architect identifies it, supervises it, and gets it rectified.


The person behind the giant visual structure is an architect. Right from designing and planning to constructing and supervising, everything falls under the purview of an Architect. Hence, a house is an art of an Architect, and he holds the major credit for bringing the house together as a structure.
