The raised glass box relates directly to the footprint of the spiral staircase, whose steel grating allows light to filter below.
Eric Reinholdt added this to Design Practice: Getting Paid
ValueIt’s important to remember, especially when you’re just beginning to draft proposals for potential clients, that the real money in the construction process is in the architecture itself — it’s not in the design fee. It’s easy to look at your proposed $50,000 fee and think it’s an incredible amount of money for someone to pay for design services. It certainly is, but if the entire project costs $500,000, it’s also an incredible value proposition for your client.Design professionals orchestrate and organize the process of design and construction, which is of direct financial benefit to your client. Minimizing construction delays and change orders and providing an efficient, durable building are just a few of the value propositions you can use to sell the client in real financial terms. Then there are the intangibles: what you can add to the livability, comfort and beauty of a home. Don’t undervalue your services. And learn to recognize that a client shopping for design professionals based solely on fees is a client you can’t afford to work with.Your turn: Every business has a fee structure that’s a little bit different and nuanced. What’s working for your business?
