Architect in the House

, Subject : Inspiration

Architect in the House 2012Roots, with Glasgow and Tiree based Architect Micheal, has once again signed up for Architect in the House.  This innovative scheme is run by Shelter, the housing and homelessness charity, and the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).  It matches homeowners with a local chartered architect who has donated an hour of their time for a design consultation.  In exchange, the homeowner can make a suggested donation of £40 to Shelter.

The money donated goes towards Shelter’s work with families in housing need.  One in seven children in Britain lives in housing that’s run-down, overcrowded, or temporary.  Shelter supports them and fights to protect their education, health and wellbeing.  Architect in the House 2011 was a huge success, raising more than £113,000 for Shelter.  You can find out more about Architect in the House here (external site).

Roots Director Chris commented, ‘It is great to be involved in such a worthwhile scheme.  The work Shelter undertakes is incredible and we are delighted to be supporting it.’
