Plans for Henley Design 2015 Revealed

RIBA South

Saturday 7 March 2015 – Main Hall, Henley Town Hall – 10am – 2.30pm

Let architects and designers inspire you, in Henley Town Hall

If you’re thinking about a major makeover for your home, the Henley Design Day on Saturday 7th March is for you. Come along and meet nearly twenty local architects and other design specialists to talk through your ideas and inspire your creativity.   Admission is FREE.

In March last year, around 300 people flocked to the second annual RIBA Henley Design Day and discussed their building needs and desires with architects, interior designers, landscape gardeners, tile and floor specialists, kitchen specialists, design authors,design-day-3 and even planning consultants.

In 2015 we will also offer one to one meetings with architects as well as presentations and a competition for the children. Details of this and prizes offered to be confirmed later.

What an architect can bring to your project
An RIBA Chartered Practice can help you realise your ambitions and guide you through the design and construction process. Architects provide a service that extends well beyond producing a set of drawings – they can handle the paperwork, bring value for money, imagination and peace of mind to your project, whilst keeping it on track and on budget.

Value for money

Architects are professional problem-solvers. Their experience and insight can help stretch what can be achieved within your budget and add value to your project. They can suggest new ways of utilising space and light, enrich the palette of materials, finishes or fittings, find a builder at the right price, and propose design solutions that will reduce your overall running costs whilst maximising the energy efficiency of your home. At a fraction of the cost of your project, an architect’s fees will prove a sound investment.

Imagination

An architect can lift your project out of the ordinary and help you achieve your aspirations and vision. They are trained designers who will explore your needs and desires and find inventive and practical ways of enhancing your living environment.

Peace of mind

When you hire an architect, you have a professional on your side who knows the construction industry inside out. You are working with someone who has undertaken seven years of architectural training – no other building professional is trained in design and construction to such a high level of expertise

Architect Mark Shipton of Oxford Architects, who took part in the Design Day said that visitors were surprised at the range of specialisms on offer: ‘whether you need a building conservation expert, are interested in sustainability, refurbishment or self-build – you’ll find an architect to suit your need in Henley Town Hall!’ Mark is Chairman of the RIBA South region which represents around 2,500 architects: ‘The Design Day is a fantastic, unique way for you to come and chat about practical ways to achieve what you want and need from your building.’
