Architect offers advice

CROFTAMIE based architecture practice Architeco has signed up to take part in Architect in the House, a joint charitable initiative by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and Shelter.

Homeowners can receive an hour consultation with an RIBA chartered architect (such as Architeco) for a suggested donation of £40 to Shelter.

Whether it’s inspiration for a study, an extra bedroom, or just better living space you need, an architect can offer creativity and professional advice that will help bring your ideas to life.

Colin Potter, principal of Architeco, said: “I urge anyone in the area who is thinking of undertaking work on their home to use an architect who has signed up for Architect in the House. We can help people unleash the potential of their homes while helping those with more significant housing problems.”

Shelter estimates that over 650,000 households in Britain are overcrowded. The donations will go towards Shelter’s work to help all those living in conditions that have a devastating effect on family life and children’s safety, health and education.
