We specialize in residential building design. With a keen eye for detail and a passion for modern design, we deliver residential projects that exceed expectations. From cozy apartments to spacious duplexes, Robertson Architecture crafts spaces that blend style and functionality seamlessly.

So, as you consider building your next investment property, here is a list of how an architect plays a crucial role in the process. It’s not just about working up a set of permit plans. Residential architects play a key role in the overall design, making sure it’s functional, safe, and looks great.


Our team at Robertson Architecture will work closely with you to understand your investment strategy, preferences, and specific needs. They will listen to your ideas, requirements, and vision for investment.


Based on your input, we will develop design concepts that balance functionality, aesthetics, and budget considerations. The preliminary plans help you visualize the overall layout and obtain preliminary zoning approval.


It is not just about the building. We will send someone out to assess the site conditions, including topography, climate, and local context. This analysis helps in designing a home that suits the specific characteristics of the location.


We make sure the design meets local requirements. We’ll get the needed permits and approvals from the right authorities.


Our design will optimize the use of space and consider the flow and arrangement of spaces to meet the functional needs. We will create efficient and comfortable spaces within the available square footage.


Appropriate materials that align with your budget, aesthetic preferences, and environmental considerations are part of the package. We can also recommend sustainable and energy-efficient options.


Making and sticking to a sensible budget for the project ensures the design fits within the financial limits. The Robertson Architecture team can also assist in obtaining cost estimates from General Contractors.

We will also produce detailed construction drawings that serve as a guide for the builders. These documents can include floor plans, elevations, sections, and other details necessary for construction. We work closely with contractors, engineers, and other professionals involved in the construction process to ensure the project is constructed in accordance with the approved drawings.


Not every residential design firm handles project management. But at Robertson Architecture, we’re here for you at every step of your project.

Project management involves overseeing the construction process, monitoring progress, and addressing any challenges that may arise. This applies to monitoring the quality of the work and materials as the project progresses. We may conduct site visits to inspect the progress and address any deviations from the design.

In short, having an architect on board when building an investment property boosts the project’s quality. They make sure it meets your needs, looks great, and follows all the relevant regulations.

Let us guide you through the process of turning your VISION into a stunning REALITY that will stand the test of time. Let’s work together. Contact us today and we’ll schedule a consultation to chat about your design project.
