Do I Need an Architect to Design My Home?

Great design can be the difference between a home that functions for your lifestyle, and one that doesn’t. Additionally, a great house design will stand the test of time as well as ensure effective use of space and maximum energy efficiency. So how do you ensure the best design possible when planning your new home? The answer is to engage an architect or house designer that is highly skilled and experienced in the both the style of home you want and the location in which it will be built.

Metronest Homes is one the leading new home builders in Melbourne’s west and we have designed and crafted hundreds of beautiful homes for many happy clients. Let’s take a look at the different options available to design your new house to help you decide which is the best for your situation.

Independent Architects

Architects are extremely passionate about design. Imaginative and creative, architects have studied design for many years and are experienced in working to design brief to deliver a truly remarkable structure. If you are unsure of the type of house that will work for you and place high value on aesthetics, use of space, energy efficiency, shadowing and are after something that’s a little different to other cookie-cutter homes, it may be worthwhile to invest more resources at the design stage of your home by hiring an architect.


With the innovation of computer aided drafting (CAD), draftsmen are now highly experienced and capable of designing building structures of all types, albeit of a simpler nature than those designed by architects. If you know what you want and you are content with a modified version of a similar house template, there’s no reason to spend a small fortune on an architect – a draftsman is more than capable of completing the required plans for your home.
