Winston Churchill is referenced with the quote “We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.”

Churchill didn’t know it at the time, in 1943 when he made this statement, but he would go on to prove this statement to be irresolutely true, however for all the wrong reasons. When rebuilding the bombed-out House of Commons, Churchill insisted that despite the fact that the old building was too small for the modern needs of its occupants, that the building be erected in precisely that same place with the exact dimensions in which it had previously been structured. The reason being that he felt that the overcrowding would create a sense of urgency which would in turn motivate the politicians to higher levels of productivity. He couldn’t have been more mistaken in that case, however, at the same time, he couldn’t have been more correct. The building did shape the politicians! Just not in the way that he had intended.

Since the beginning of humanity, we have had the indispensable need for shelter. Shelter has provided human beings with safety, warmth, space to home their families and protection from the great outdoors. Human beings have always required a space to keep them and their families safe from the threats of predators on the outside as well as from the elements. Stemming from there humans, have taken time out of their busy lives, to ensure that they have a safe place that is theirs and theirs alone. Further to this, humans have developed a necessity of finding a place to house and keep safe their goods for sale or exchange, stock that they could sell or use to procure what they needed to sustain their families and get a varied of goods that they themselves may not have had the skill or ability to produce or grow themselves.

From humble beginnings, homes and businesses have grown to be more than just places to store people and goods which are precious. Homes and places of business have become more than just the structures or shapes that they have been styled into. Buildings have come to represent who we are, who we have been and where we are going.

dblo architect studio recognises that the buildings that we shape, in turn shape us. With that kind of intensity of outcome for both function and form, whether it is your home or your workplace, we understand the effect that the building will have on your life. Going above and beyond the ability to merely protect you and your loved ones, your home is the ultimate representational display of your being.  With that in mind, it is every aspect of design that becomes the focus point of your build, new or renovated, residential or commercial, community or public. Design is the tool that we use to ensure that every aspect of the building is utilised to its fullest potential and that creative design and high-quality construction enhances the environment and the community giving a sense of place and responsibility.

If you are in a position to literally build your own business, including the structure, the most effective way your architect can help you is by helping to achieve beautiful design in a cost effective manner. Designing your own business is a privilege not afforded to many people so if you are in this position you already know how important great design is. And of course great design is more often than not, accompanied with practical aspects required within that work environment.

Even the most ostentatious and creatively designed businesses, have practical aspects and requirements which centre on the practical aspects and work needs of the company. Thankfully not everyone has a penchant for grandiose design but a business without a bit of panache added during the design process seems like a creative opportunity wasted. No doubt as the process begins you will find yourself, either full of intrepid ideas or at a sheer loss of where to even begin. Sometimes the process gets easier for those who have a tough time getting started. Sometimes the process gets way more complicated than previously expected for those who plan to design architectural feats.

Either way, your architect is there to meter the process for you. Its true when they say that a person doesn’t know what they don’t know. So when it comes to massive task of designing your dream business, having someone on hand who not only has the technical knowledge and expertise to guide you, but who also has experience in the design process and who know ahead of time, the trials and tribulations that lay before you. Your architect sees the bigger pictures from every angle and already knows how to educate you and help define exactly what you plan to build. But this should not come at extra cost. Inevitably, when beginning the building process one can expect that your build may cost more than you originally anticipated but there are ways for your architect to help you to keep the costs down such as suggesting alternatives for your building materials which will give you the same outcome and finished product, but that may cost you less and last just as long.

Otherwise your architect should be able to assist you with any logistics such as down-sizing or down-scaling the plans, avoiding unnecessary additional rooms which you may think that you need but don’t really. Or by helping you maximise your use of space in such a way that you find that you end up being able to more effectively use the areas that you have, rather than building upwards or side-ways, thereby also saving on costs. With the cost of living rising at a rapid rate, and properties costing more despite a smaller size, its always wise to rely on cleverly designed smaller spaces to provide you with everything that your business requires.

Another option is to consider sustainable architectural designs which realistically will cost you more initially but which will also save you money in the long run and which have the added benefit of ensure your business is not only of benefit to the earth but also of benefit to your budget. If you are considering all of your options and feel its time to consult with an expert, then we recommend the dbo’s commercial architects Fulham or the Commercial architects Clapham for assistance with any commercial project.
