An architect is a professional, and his services are not cheap. However, there is a large local market for architectural services, and the internet is helping to lower the cost of hiring an architect, even for small projects. So, it might be that you find yourself a bargain. It is also important to remember that hiring a good architect from your city can save you money in the long run. A home that has been designed and built properly will maintain its value and increase its resale value.
Hiring an architect from your city has many more benefits as he or she would be well connected to the resources and ideal building materials to use in your locality for your house.

When choosing an architect, make sure you take into account the type of architectural firm, their specialities and expertise so that you are aware of the services they offer. For example, if you want to add a pool or spa in your property, it will not make sense to approach a firm of architects who specialize in building kitchens. Also pay attention to the type of work they do. If you are looking for a modern and original design, choose architects who have proven experience in creating spaces and modern buildings. It sounds simple, but sometimes the offices of architects accept work for which they are not adequately equipped. Try browsing through homify to find the perfect style for your home.
Viewed simply, you will need the skills of an architect every time you start a construction project that involves modifying or remodeling your home. Generally, for simple interior design tasks, you will not need to invest extra money in hiring the services of an architect and you can do the work on your own. However, when you add a structure, such as a guest house or some extension, build a pool or even start building a house from scratch, it is always a good idea to consult an expert in architectural practice.
Once you've selected your ideal design system using the homify site and your idea book, an architect will help you turn your dreams and plans into reality. Your architect will work with you and draw formal blueprints and diagrams that construction professionals can follow to build the finished design. In that process, your architect will use sophisticated techniques to ensure that any structure is stable and secure. Using your design skills, an architect will shape your own plans, define details and create visualizations in 3D until the idea can be transformed into a finished product. Many architects specialize in specific areas, such as building kitchens, garages or landscaping gardens.

Aside from a skilled architect, you will probably need to work with other specialists to ensure that your project is completed successfully and without complications.

The building which is used at present as an office complex by Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC) is one of the ancient monuments of Surat city. It was built during the period of Mugal Emperor Shah Jahan and was popularly known as 'Mugal Sarai'. It’s architectural qualities are visibly demonstrated by the skilful composition of different elements combined with a combination of arches, cornices, decorated parapets and sculptured patterns on the exterior facade.
