    I consulted a few Architects and Architectural firms in Bangalore when building my House.

    Generally, professional Architects charge fees based on the construction work scope, design need, and additional services. Mostly, the cost is calculated based on a per sq feet area.

    However, the design requirement and involvement of the Architect in the entire construction process determine the final price.

    The Architect gets the fees in advance, so you should be prepared for the payment. The payment terms should be mentioned on the legal document that is duly signed and stamped.

    Some Architects in Bangalore may offer you systematic payment terms, but you should inform the cost in advance to avoid dispute after hiring the Architect. Whatever payment terms you both finalize, always put everything in writing.

    So, if you plan to Hire some good residential Architects in Bangalore, be prepared to shell out around 3% to 6% on the project cost.

    Though you might find some Architects or Architectural firms whose charges or fees might be less than 3%, it depends again on the right Architect your Hire who be the perfect guide during the entire house construction process.

    Professional Architects in Bangalore hike the price in developed areas and charge their clients more than the average cost compared to underdeveloped areas.

    I hired an Architect in the past for one of my house construction. The Architect should charge 7.5% of the project’s cost as per the Council of Architecture.

    However, Architects or Architectural firms charges may vary depending on the size of the property and the type of the project. Additionally, the property’s location also affects the Architects fees in Bangalore.

    In many regions of India, Architects or Architectural firms charge a lump sum amount in advance or pay per square foot rate.

    If you decide to hire a famous Architect for the design work, they might charge more than you may generally pay to the local Architects.

    Some freelance residential Architects work on an hourly basis too. So you have many options available to design your home from the professional.

    It would be best to take the quotation from multiple Architects before you hire one. Generally, you might come across residential Architects in Bangalore who charge Rs 35 per sq ft if they are freelancers and upwards of Rs 120 /sq ft if they are well experienced.

    So, consider both individual freelance Architects and experienced Architectural firms that provide the service to the homeowner.

    Comparing the price with different professionals will give you an estimated cost. You need to ensure that you select the right Architects or Architectural firm that will support you throughout the construction of your home.

    You will easily find affordable Architectural firms / Architects in Bangalore whose charges or fees might vary around 3 to 5% on the proposed construction cost of the house.

    If you are looking for a budget Architect, you can also look around for Freelance Architects who can design your House at half the cost of What experienced Architects charge.

    Hiring freelance Architects in Bangalore, you need to be prepared for the risks because their lack of experience might lead to a Redo of construction works, Incomplete working drawings, Supervision with other contractors, Delay in giving drawings, etc.
