Re: engaging an architect

1) Speak to the Bauamt about what is allowed and also how much space/volume you have to play with

2) If you haven't lived in the place for a decent amount of time - do so. Your ideas will likely change

3) Make a concrete list (no pun intended) of exactly where your current layout hinders your life - and then whittle it down to changes which will actually improve your life

4) Sketch your ideas

5) Go back to the Bauamt

6) Speak to your neighbours

7) Resketch your ideas

8) Go back to the Bauant

9) Speak to architects
