March 3, 2016 What does the site tell you about how to design your house? Posted In: Uncategorized

So many times, clients have preconceived ideas about the design of their house. Most of the time their well thought out ideas don’t take into consideration the site. Starting with an understanding of the uniqueness of the site helps determine where certain rooms want to be, how the house needs to be oriented to take the hot sun and cool evening breezes into consideration, views toward and from each room, and how to join the interior and exterior. This unique home frames the views. The 12′ deep cantilevered porch covers a beautiful east facing terrace where the owners will enjoy cool summer southeast breezes. It’s exciting to see how the planning is paying off even in the early framing stage.
