Sculpture and architecture are the forms in which an artist can express his or her creativity in three dimensions, and the world is full of examples of their amazing achievements. Some date back to an age even before the iconic structures built by the Pharaohs, the Romans, and the Greeks. While many of the buildings of those times were extraordinarily beautiful, their structures would be largely incompatible with our 21st-century lifestyles. In their place, however, the modern artists from a leading firm of architects in Pretoria have been creating some masterpieces of their own, characterised by a distinctly modern flair that has successfully combined aesthetics with functionality.
Residents in the suburbs of the Jacaranda city enjoy some of the best weather in the country, and those who are in a position to plan their homes invariably place a high priority on designs that provide for the outdoor lifestyle and which requires the designer to make the transition between home and garden a natural one. In turn, the task of ensuring both the dwelling and outside areas become one with their surroundings is what makes the difference between merely impressive and magnificent – a feat performed regularly by this team of architects in Pretoria.
Functionality is, more often than not, the main priority for the owners of larger commercial structures, such as corporate head offices, shopping centres, and hotels. That said, there is no denying that their consumer appeal is as much about their visual impact as it is about features, such as ease of access, ambient lighting, security, and the efficient use of energy.
Though perhaps not immediately obvious to someone who has never commissioned a bespoke building, the role of a firm of architects in Pretoria, or in any city, extends well beyond that of producing a design and translating that into a set of building plans. The job does not end there, but continues as one of the firm’s architectural professionals takes on the function of middlemen in the interactions between the client and the council, the contractors and subcontractors involved, specialist consultants, and those tasked with supplying the building materials. In addition, his or her role is to ensure the quality of the build conforms to the standards specified.
This is a point to be considered should you consider the cheaper option of simply hiring a draftsman rather than one of JK Designs’ architects in Pretoria. Without the benefit of a professional with the knowledge to keep an eye on all of the small, but crucial details for the duration of the project, any money you hoped to save and more could be consumed by unexpected building costs.
