What is a building Designer?
Simply put, a Building Designer designs buildings. These professionals have experience with a variety of building types, including both single-family and multi-family homes, along with light commercial work.
Many Building Designers are also known as Residential Designers or Home Designers, since they mainly focus on residential design and remodeling.
A Building Designer has exactly the same or very similar qualifications as a registered architect, often with a degree in Architecture and many years of experience. In many cases, the only difference between a Building Designer and Architect is that a Building Designer has chosen not to take the state examination required for Architectural registration.
What does a building designer do?
The work of a Building Designer is incredibly diverse. It may consist of residential, both single and multi-unit, and commercial structures as permitted by the architectural statutes of each state.
When it comes down to it, a Building Designer is a listener, a problem-solver and a creative. With an eye for beauty and a brain for practicality, their task is to transform a clients vision into an aesthetically beautiful and highly functional space.
