Why book a local architect through Airtasker?

Designing and building a house or commercial building is no easy task; you’ll need someone with the right education, skills and experience to help you pull off this massive project. But don’t worry, Airtasker can connect you with the right experts when you need to find an architect or the appropriate architectural designers.

Our platform can be beneficial if this is your first time to have a home or building designed and you don’t know where to begin. Don’t bother with online ads or making several trips to meet with different architectural firms - just put up the task!

Remember to include your needs and budget in your post to get qualified Taskers to come to you. You may receive enquiries and free quotes from several Taskers - but don’t accept just any offer. Take the time to see reviews and ratings on each Tasker, then book the one you think has the best qualifications. Confirm your choice, then set an appointment to get started on your project. So go on, use that pink button and turn your ideas into reality.

Get the best architects in your area

After each completed task on our site, you’re given the option to rate and review your worker. You’ll be able to easily compare local architects who have completed a project and see what others think of their work.

Easy research

Rather than going out to find and compare architects, Airtasker brings professional designs straight to your inbox.

Don’t break the bank

Building projects are expensive pursuits, however on Airtasker you set the budget. When you post your task, you say how much you’re willing to pay and local architects apply based on that figure.

Find insured architects

Because of the importance of an architect’s work, it’s vital that they’re fully insured. All tasks on our site are covered for up to $10 million third party liability.

Top Architects related questions

An architect focuses on the design, look and style of a structure. Meanwhile, architectural engineers are more concerned with making sure that the structure is sturdy and meets the needs of its occupants. Back in the day, architects practised both disciplines, but these are sometimes considered separate specialisations today. A good architect can be a mixture of both, like the old days, knowing as much about good design as where to place load-bearing walls and electricals. 

Yes, you can, but this isn’t without caveats. You can certainly create a home design with a simple program like Google Sketchup. Still, without the knowledge or experience in architecture or architectural engineering, your design may turn out faulty. Design software doesn’t take building codes, safety regulations and materials into account. You can use the software to explore design possibilities then discuss your design’s feasibility with an experienced architect.  

That largely depends on the complexity of your project. A simple home design or design for a small commercial space can take 2 to 3 weeks to complete. More complex designs can take at least a month. If you want to have a 3D rendering and a 3D video walkthrough, that can take another two weeks or so to complete. Discuss your needs with your architect or designer so they can give you a more accurate estimate. 


Apart from a degree in architecture, the requisite license and experience, look for an experienced architect with an attractive portfolio. Try not to choose an architect whose style may clash with yours - unless they are open-minded. While a creative architect is good to find, they should also be rational and willing to accept criticism. They should also be excellent problem-solvers who can adapt to any unexpected issues and keep the project moving. 

Consider your daily activities and check if the plan provides efficient flow and convenience as you perform them. For instance, does the floor plan make it easy for you to park your car, take groceries into your kitchen, then prepare a meal? Is it easy to move through your living room and dining area? If any of these seem difficult to do with your current floor plan, ask your architect or designer to help you make the appropriate changes. 

What do architectural services include?

This is a range of architectural services intended to help you design and build a structure or utilise a space. You can hire architects to help you realise your vision, whether it’s for a residential or commercial project. Some architects can help you manage your project’s different stages or requirements, from inception to completion. Architectural services can also include redesigning and renovating portions of your home.  

Architectural Rendering & Visualisation

Your Tasker can help you design your home or commercial space from the ground up. This includes making a 3D rendering of your design. Your Tasker can create a design according to your needs and tastes while conforming to building codes, safety standards and industry best practices. Some Taskers can provide you with a 3D video where you can walk through the design and see how it might look after construction! You can make the 3D rendering viewable online for potential clients to view if you’re a realtor.  

Building Designers

If you are an architect or have engaged local architects but need someone to put your design down on paper for reference and documentation, then you can book a building designer. They can provide an accurate architect drawing and schematics of your design that comply with building codes, safety standards and state regulations. 

Residential Architects

Residential architects are speciality architects you can hire when you need architecture home design. They can help you design and build single-family homes, condominium or apartment buildings or townhouses. Residential architects can propose designs that suit your needs, tastes and budget while abiding by building codes and regulations.  

Interior Architects

If you already have the basic structure and design of your home or commercial building, you can hire an interior architect. They can design your home or building’s walls, doors, windows and fixtures. Note that an interior architect is the more technical architect who handles the design layout and installation of electricals, plumbing, heating and cooling systems. 

Your architect can also recommend the appropriate materials and techniques for installing each system. You can hire another designer to beautify the space after their work is done.

Home Renovations

You may want to make some changes to your home, so why not choose to hire architects that can help you with renovating? If you need to refurbish a part of your home, you can book architects who also specialise in this field. The renovation jobs can include: 

  • Loft Conversion
  • Garage Conversion
  • Basement Conversion
  • House Extensions

Depending on the nature of your renovations, your architect might help you get someone to lay new foundations, put up new walls and do site cleanup

Floor Planning

To determine how your walls, rooms, fixtures and other physical features contribute to flow and how they look in your design, some Taskers can make your floor plan. They can come up with a floor plan that not only fits your needs and tastes but also maximises the space and conforms with building codes, safety regulations and best practices.
