A simple exterior makeover can maximize curb appeal and raise home value. Small changes can bring amazing transformations and give style to ordinary houses. However, the home facade and exterior are projects that many homeowners leave to last and need help with. Arcbazar comes to the rescue with an innovative crowdsourcing approach that let homeowners connect with architects around the globe for out-of-the box creative and affordable design.
Arcbazar runs international architectural and interior design competitions. Each project is launched online and designers worldwide compete and submit solutions for the new space. Clients can then choose the solution they like most based on their initial evaluation criteria. “We want to bring high-end design to everyday small-scale home remodeling projects. We want our clients to be able to create their dream spaces in an easy, affordable and fun way,” says Imdat As, founder of Arcbazar.com. Hundreds of clients around the globe have already used Arcbazar for successful home remodeling, landscape and interior design projects. “We have helped clients build great kitchens, bathrooms, living space, basements, or outside patios, balconies, facades and landscapes.” Arcbazar also introduced a web tool to help clients estimate the cost of the home remodeling project.
Robert L., from Chicago, was “building a 3,450 sq ft home and needed a modern design for the facade. Something that would make it stand out as a leader in the city as opposed to a follower and increase curb appeal.” He run a design competition on Arcbazar and received 23 proposals, ultimately opting for a design from Nikola Dmitrovic and David Tomazovic, Bosnia and Herzegovina. The project was very successful and brought a multitude of concepts and options for the modern facade Robert was looking for.
