Slattery & Associates Architects Planners Inc As part of our mission to highlight the excellent work of our members and share the role that Architects have in shaping our built environment, we have asked our previous Design Award Winners to share their experiences in creating and bringing to completion their projects. These series have been formatted as a recurring unedited conversation that will bring the voice of the Architect to our readers.
A successful relationship between you and your architect depends largely on selecting the right professional for your needs.
Architects are trained in the art and science of designing spaces to meet human requirements. They understand the relationship of space to human needs and can create harmony between interior and exterior and between new and existing spaces.
