How do you know which category an architect fits in to ? Reputation is really the key to deciding once you have established that the person or the team is a good fit.

I have encountered the Bad Architect and lived to hugely regret the amount of faith and friendship my husband (of the time) and I put into him. He ticks 4 of the 4 boxes perfectly, and created such a monument of grandiosity at the end of the 1980s that not only was the house not a home due to its insane scale but it bankrupt us. Beware of smooth talkers who provide little detail!
