Architects can help you to turn dreams into reality
The nights are getting longer and chillier, so it’s time to spend more time indoors. Autumn can be a good time to plan really bold changes to your home. Could you add an extra room? Shift your kitchen into the dining room? Move the staircase?
These kinds of major makeover are the mainstay of architects. You can drop in and talk through your ideas, large or small with a range of local architects in the Performance Hall, at the Discovery Centre, any time from 10am to 3pm on Saturday 19 November.
Admission is free and you can chat to as many architects as you like – just bring any photos and plans that will help you to outline your project to them and be inspired.
The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) is organising Winchester Design Day to showcase the skills of the city’s local architects. Winchester Design Day will feature around 15/20 local architects’ practices.
An architect designed home can benefit one’s life in more ways than simply enjoying a unique and bespoke space. The visual appeal and spatial impression is something that isn’t just reflected by your own enjoyment of the finished project. The value of good design is a factor that makes a real impact to your investment. The desirability of a well-designed house is driving the value of architecturally designed properties. There has never been a better time to invest in an architect and today is your chance to speak to the experts and get the ball rolling on your project.

When & Where
Royal Institute of British Architects - RIBA
The RIBA, one of the most influential architectural institutions in the world, has been promoting architecture and supporting the profession since being awarded its Royal Charter in 1837. Then the RIBA’s remit was ‘the general advancement of architecture’.
Today the institute goes even further as we champion better buildings, communities and the environment through architecture and our members.
- We provide support for our 40,500 members worldwide in the form of training, technical services, publications and events, and set standards for the education of architects, both in the UK and overseas. 8,000 of these members reside in the South West and South East.
- We work with government to improve the design quality of public buildings, new homes and new communities. Government now recognise architecture as a political issue that affects how we live, how our children are taught, how we are treated when we are ill and the quality of our neighbourhoods.
- Our annual awards programme recognises outstanding architecture and culminates in the RIBA Stirling Prize.
- Recognised by the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (MLA) as one of the finest collections of architectural material in the world, the British Architectural Library is the largest and most comprehensive resource in the United Kingdom for research and information on all aspects of architecture.
