Christmas is well and truly over, and the kids are back at school. Now is the time to start thinking about how best to create more space in your home, perhaps add another bedroom or bathroom, or even turn the garage into a dining area.
A key date for making a building project into reality will be this Saturday 5 March. Now in its 4th year, the Henley Design Day is held every Spring in Henley Town Hall. It is the opportunity to meet local architects and other design and building professionals, and to bounce your ideas around with them. And its FREE. https://henleydesignday2016.eventbrite.co.uk
Organised by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), this year’s Henley Design Day will feature at least 19 architects and their work. Just pop into the Town Hall with some information about your project or idea and have a no-obligation chat with an architect or three.
Sarah Miller organises the Design Day for the RIBA. As very long-time resident of Henley, she’s very aware that love for the town can often mean that you improve, rather than move your home.
‘Lots of us put up with small-space living just so that we can remain here,’ she says. ‘But even the tiniest building on the tightest of plots can be reordered to make the best use of what you’ve got.
‘Architects are trained to see the possibilities, including in historic buildings. They are an incredible resource of creative and workable ideas – so come to Henley Design Day to brainstorm ideas for your home.’
Henley Design Day will be in Henley Town Hall from 10am to 3pm on Saturday 5 March. The official opening by the Mayor will take place on the steps at 10am.
Refreshments will be provided by Hot Gossip who will have a pop up on the stage.
