Star Trek style and hidden doors
A BEDROOM concealed behind a hidden doorway, underground passageways and Star Trek-style doors feature in a list of the ten most unusual requests made by homeowners to architects compiled by Shelter and the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) to highlight the Architect in the House initiative, which runs until July 11.
They hope the findings will inspire people to explore the design potential in their own home by signing up to Architect in the House. The match-making scheme, sponsored by Rockwool, puts homeowners in touch with local RIBA architects who provide free, hour long consultations in return for a donation to Shelter.
