Architect smurf was introduced in Version 1.2.0 which was released in May 2012. During the game Papa Smurf will ask you to build Architect Smurf’s house (hut), this will happen after a discussion takes place between him and other Smurfs:
Smurf 1: Wasn’t there an Architect smurf?
Smurf 2: He retired to smurf a set of condominiums once.
Smurf 3: He retired after they burned down
Papa Smurf: May be if we build him a house, we can convince him to set up a shop again.
Then you will get a quest from Papa Smurf Asking you to build Architect’s House (Build Architect’s Hut).
Buying Architect smurf’s Hut will enable you to customize the huts in the island. Architect’s Hut can only be built in the island, and costs only 1500 gold coins. However if you go to the shop menu on the island it tells you that it requires Handy’s hut Shop. So before you get Architect Smurf’s house you need first to upgrade Handy’s Hut in the main village. For more information on how to perform this upgrade please go to Handy Smurf page.
