Hi, if you are referring to the partition behind the sofa, this is fixed wall with poplar wood at the front and an interior lit polycarbornate wall beside it and is not movable.

3 Surprising Essential Tools for the Modern Architect

If your architect doesn't work with these, you might want to steer clear. And nope, we're not talking about CAD Full Story

Very intriguing article, as well as the following comments. It makes sense, even the conflicting opinions, but it doesn't ease my mind at all as I consider how "they" always say to get a good architect and not charge ahead with one's own (hairbrained) ideas. Great. But how do I know which one is the one with whom I can easily work? (That's assuming I can afford the architect.) If I sort of know what I want but don't really know what's "recommended" or what is feasible, (much less how much money it would cost,) then I don't even know if I am wasting my time on a particular idea. (We are talking specific redos, not an entire house remodel.) And how do I know when something is feasible, but the architect or the remodeler is used to doing it one way and says my way won't work?

As in any relationship I believe mutual respect is possibly the most important tool. Every project is as unique as the client, and a designer should strive to keep it that way. The first meeting will generally provide both the architect/designer and the prospective client with enough information and gut feeling to know if there is a match. This is vitally important if there is to be good communication and a degree of collaboration on a project. It quickly becomes apparent if this is not going to work, it's a fine balance to maintain as one has to simultaneously be a close confidant in some respects and a paid professional at all times. Like all relationships they develop as the project moves along, but what you establish at the outset will help guide both parties through the obstacle course of building or remodeling. Regardless of experience, it is a learning process for all and should be appreciated as such. Just as the client is unique, so is the designer/architect, each utilizing their experience and "bag of tools" in their own way, finding what works best for the individual client based on the demands of the project. Besides the necessary pragmatic elements involved, much of what is required can't always be taught in school and what you leave with will depend on how much importance was given to personal development as well as the necessary skills to start the journey. It's important to make the client feel like you're in this together throughout the process, as hard as that can be as we generally work on multi projects and try to have a life of our own. But if at the end, the client is not only happy with the design but also the experience then not only is that good for the designer, but the profession as a whole. As for travel, it is good for everyone regardless of profession, but as an artist/designer it is invaluable, and it's not just about looking at the buildings. The younger you are, the more important it is. Where there is a will........
