How To ChooseThe Right Designer
October 7 - 11AM - Noon
Join the New England Chapter of the Institute of Architecture and Art and the Boston Design Center in celebration of Boston Design Week to hear an intimate group of industry professionals share their personal experiences and secrets on how they might interview other professionals within their own field and further, and explain the process that they go through to recommend other professionals to their clients to be part of the larger team.
New England ICAA president and architect David Andreozzi will host a fireside chat on Zoom with industry leaders including interior designer Suzanne Kasler in Atlanta, architect Anne Fairfax of Fairfax & Sammons in New York and Palm Beach, landscape architect Janice Parker in Greenwich, Connecticut, and Andrew Cogar president of Historical Concepts Architecture and Planning in Atlanta and New York City.
Forming a design team is difficult because all designers are different! Most new to the process mistakenly rely on glossy magazines or a neighbor’s praise to choose a designer—but custom bespoke design does not come together that way. Rather than following, search for a designer that will best reflect your own design soul. Ask the important questions about the designer’s individual process, who will actually design for you at their office, and most importantly, their methodology of project administration. Build a team with likeminded professionals to guide you through the design and construction process and who will advise and shepherd you along the way. This team approach will not only meet your aesthetic desires, but also protect your resale with timeless rather than trendy solutions.
