Architect in the House

Every year during Architecture Week, the Royal Institute of British Architects in association with the charity Shelter, promoted this scheme to encourage Clients to have a one hour consultation in their home or office in exchange for a minimum donation to Shelter.

The RIBA co-ordinated the public's response and referred applicants to a participating Practice, ideally within five miles of their home or office. All RIBA members who participated in the scheme were usually RIBA Chartered Practices. We are such a Practice and participated for fifteen years. Each year we undertook a considerable number of visits.

Between 1999 and 2013 we visited over 500 homes from Guisborough to Berwick. In doing so we raised over £20,700 for Shelter. Examples of the projects we have visited and the matters discussed can be seen in the adjoining lists of photographs. Following such consultations between 1999 and 2013 we undertook a considerable number of the projects, ranging in value from £7,000 to £900,000. Indeed, many of the projects depicted on this website began with a visit under the Scheme.

Sadly the RIBA have decided to discontinue the Scheme.  However, we are pleased to announce that JPA will continue to run Architect in the House. We will run the Scheme throughout the year so it is never too late to be involved if you so wish, just give us a call. We are always happy to meet prospective Clients for a preliminary meeting without obligation.  This year we have decided to invite The Save the Children Fund to be the beneficiary of donations and they have gracefully agreed.
