Residential Design Portfolio
This complex contemporary home allowed us to explore and
expand the architectural vocabulary traditionally used for
residences. The home represents a successful collaboration
between a willing owner, a creative Architect and a skilled
contractor. This type of team approach is precisely what we
strive for with each project that we complete. As we present
the owner with innovative and creative options, we provide
design solutions that will address the owner’s specific needs
and requests. In this case we were also aware of the incredible
site opportunities that were presented.
Log Home Residence
This rustic home is another
residential building type that we
have provided design services
for. This log home has a very
complex structural system that
allows the traditional forms of
the home to be maintained,
while eliminating walls to open
the floor plan to meet the
owner’s request for massive
living spaces indoors.
This home is located and designed to address
the specific nature of the site. The slope, the
sunlight and the views are all to the south of
the home. The floor plan as well as the window
patterns were developed to allow each room
within, to have maximum daylight from the
south and shelter from the north. The windows
and siding also respond to the traditional
craftsman style that the home replicates.
This home has a growing family that needed more space. We investigated two options with the client to either build out into the backyard or to build up to add a much needed 500 sq. ft.. Through a careful cost estimating process it was more cost effective to build up because of the existing site conditions and landscaping that added great value to the home. Through careful space planning of the interiors and window placement one would never know an addition was ever added.
Residential Addition with Pre-Cast Concrete Walls
This energy conscious owner wanted an economical system for an addition to their home consisting of a master bedroom suite on first floor as well as an office. By using EPS forms filled with concrete the home will have a higher R value as well as a larger thermal mass.
