Core Benefits of Architecture Design

Mar 24, 2023 | Architectural Design, Blog

Do you know the importance of architectural design in a successful project result? While we often think of the aesthetic aspects of building exteriors when we consider the role that architects play, the truth is there is so much more behind the importance of a skilled architectural design team. Larry Podhora Architecture (LPA), in partnership with the Krahn Group of Companies (KGC), is pleased to provide industry-leading architectural consulting and support services for clients across Canada. Below, we’ll take a closer look at why architectural design is integral for a successful build process. Read on to learn more!

What is Architectural Design?

As a discipline, architectural design focuses on creating functional environments and structures that marry aesthetics and core operational components seamlessly. While style certainly plays a factor (more on this below), architecture design is often far more technically oriented than people assume and works closely with related disciplines like structural engineering to design final products that are as sound as they are visually appealing. Key factors that architecture helps influence includes:


Architectural design plays a significant role in determining the overall profitability of your building, often in unexpected ways. There’s certainly no denying that “attractive” properties are generally more welcoming to consumers; the economic value of architecture goes even further. Architects consider where a building is located, what helps drive traffic, and the safety measures that need to be implemented to stay compliant with all codes and regulations. This saves you time, money and makes your building as accessible as possible.

Interior Comfort/Quality of Life

It’s not just the exterior that makes a building. For your property to excel, it must have the right internal design and components to operate smoothly. Architects can add subtle elements that create a cohesive “flow” throughout the building and leave occupants feeling safe, happy, and comfortable. Better layouts and ergonomic buildings lead to increased efficiency, lower utility bills, and longer-lasting foundations.


As much as we’ve extolled some of the values that aren’t looks-based, we would be remiss if we didn’t highlight the clear benefit of aesthetics in property development. A well-designed building is as visually appealing as it is functional and stands as its compelling argument for entrance. For municipalities and major corporations or brands having a well-designed exterior is integral for awareness and positive public association, making architecture essential for success.

Community Integration

When you build, it’s very rarely just about an individual property. Architects take a close look at how to seamlessly integrate your build into the surrounding community without negatively affecting your projects’ block value, traffic flow, and other infrastructure-related elements.

Longevity and Future Building

Finally, just as a skilled architects will know to integrate your design into the surrounding landscape, they’ll also know how to create a final product that stands the test of time and sets a new standard for subsequent development. Good architecture leads the way for economic development and the growth of businesses in the area as a whole, and it always knows how to plan with the future in mind!
