We are looking for a talented architect or firm to help us design 5 sets of architectural plans. The plans will be for Garages with Apartments above for infill development where Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU's), Laneway houses, Mother-in-Law-units and similar dwellings are allowed by law. The designs will be for placement at the back of an urban lot, accessed by alley or lane. Plans will need to be complete and ready for construction at 1/8" Scale at 24" x 36" pending local engineering and code review by the builder.
Plans will be for two and three storys - footprints will be 25' x 25', 25' x 30', 25' x 40', 30' x 30', 30' x 40' and 1 to be discussed.
The designs will be for the US market and will need to be designed in consultation with us in a variety of styles (Modern, Contemporary, Craftsman, Victorian). Familiarity with Structural Insulated Panel (SIP) friendly design techniques will be helpful.
We are looking for designs that could be customized to customers property, needs and specifications. When you respond, know that our company is looking to have an ongoing relationship with the designer to provide paid customization services.
The designs created in this project and in the future on our behalf must be provided to us on a 'work-for-hire' basis including all rights of sale, resale, modification and future use including all PDF, CAD and design files.
Time and Budget range is 10-15 hours per plan set ( total of 50-75 hours for 5 sets of plans) at $25.00 - $30.00 / hour = total of $1250 - $2250. As stated before, if the design process produces good results, ongoing paid customization and consulting work is expected.
A sample set of plans are included here for your review.
