Local architecture practice SS4 Architects has signed up to take part in Architect in the House, the joint charitable initiative by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and Shelter.
Homeowners can receive an hour consultation with an RIBA chartered architect (such as SS4 Architects) for a suggested donation of £40 to Shelter. Whether it’s inspiration for a study, an extra bedroom, or just better living space you need, a chartered RIBA architect can offer creativity and professional advice that will help bring your ideas to life.
Rosie Craggs said:
‘I urge anyone in the local area who is thinking of undertaking work on their home to use an architect who has signed up for Architect in the House. We can help people unleash the potential of their homes while helping those with more significant housing problems.’
Shelter estimates that more than 650,000 households in Britain are overcrowded, affecting over 1 million children in England alone. The donation will go towards Shelter’s work to help all those living in conditions that have a devastating effect on family life and children’s safety, health and education.
Homeowners can register for their consultation by visiting www.architectinthehouse.org.uk The project was launched officially on 16 th April 2012, and you can sign up at any time until mid-July, with homeowners being matched to the local RIBA chartered practices and architects best suited to meet their needs.
