Working Within a Budget
This creative solution offers a good example of “value engineering” as costs exceed expectations.
More often than not we are all working within a budget.
Clients ask architects to design a dream home, contractors build the dream house, and architectural photographers photograph it.
The creative part often comes when the original dream is “value engineered” as the costs exceed the budget. This is where creative solutions come from each part of the team. Architects can use the same building language while specifying less expensive materials. Craftsmen step up with solutions while the project is being built. And it’s the photographer’s responsibility to translate all of this into an image that highlights the design intent and level of craft — exposing the dream while minimizing the realities of the budget.
