Every architect wants to build a skyscraper. They’re towering, iconic and - if designed badly - can destroy a car (remember this...?).
In fact, over 90% of the applications that we receive when hiring architectural positions feature skyscrapers, which we think is a shame. After all, these projects are so vast, and take such a long time, that no one really owns them.
What’s more likely is that a single architect will have contributed to individual elements of the design process, without ever needing to understand the end-to-end reality of actually building something.
At Resi, we’re obsessed with what some people might deem to be the “less sexy” end of the market: your home.
Sure, we didn’t design The Shard, but we’ve helped hundreds of families to add a kitchen big enough for a birthday party with everyone they love. We’ve transformed lofts into spare rooms for growing families, and squeezed rooms above garages for moody teenagers (far enough, but not too far away!).
