A construction project, no matter how small it is, requires a skilled and experienced architect who will design and oversee the project. It could be a new construction project, a conversion of an existing structure, or just a renovation of your house. When you find an architect for the work, you will love the results.

It could be a bit of a challenge to find an architect if you do not know how to look for one. But there is nothing to worry about as the insights we will share below will be invaluable to you.

How to find a good architect

Ask Around

When you want to find an architect, the first step is to ask around. If you know someone who just had a construction project finished successfully or is having one completed, you can ask them about an architect.

The good thing is that people do not hesitate to refer and endorse an architect who is experienced and has the best skills. Actually, it is best that you get this information from people you know as they do not lie.

Do an Online Search

Technology is amazing since you can find an architect from the comfort of your home, office, or wherever you are using your smartphone. Doing an online search to find an architect is pretty easy and convenient. You can even see the services they offer, the experience they have, the price, and endorsements.

  • Web search – Perusing through websites to find architect who is nearby is the easiest. Any reputable architecture firm has a website, and if you make a region-based search, then you will easily find an architect near you.

  • Social media search – Many architects are on social media platforms such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. So, peruse these platforms and look for an experienced and skilled architect to work on your project.

Check the National Database

The authorities have local databases that clients can access to find an architect of their choice. The best thing about using such a tool is that you can find an architect with the skills and experience that you want. The databases store all the information needed by clients such as the number of years an architect has practiced, the firms they have previously worked with, where they are currently, and all big projects they have undertaken. You can access these databases through the official website of the authority involved, either for free or at a fee. Check how it works in your country.

Using Local Print Media

Well, local media is still in use currently. So, you can find an architect in a local magazine or newspaper. They usually run ads in the property section. From here, you can call them and make further inquiries. Since you do not know the experience or expertise they have, make sure that you ask all the necessary questions when you call them. Get to know more about their work in detail to help you find an architect who is a great fit for your project.


From the above insights, it is pretty easy to find an architect of your choice with the best expertise, skills, and experience. At the end of the day, your project will be a bigger success than you can imagine.
