Country style house

  The project was designed in 2010 for private customer on site near the highlands. Generally, clients have a basic size and a list of specifics in mind, a sketch of proposed floor plans, and a file full of pictures of items that they would like in their house. During this initial phase of design it is important to become familiar with the lifestyle of the client as well as the site where the house will be built.
  Therefore, a main option of sketch layout was common and functional room planning, all without adding extra premises to the home’s footprint. Also exterior elevations have been designed without luxury options.
  The main floor showcases an open layout in which the great room (dining room) and kitchen open to one another. On the opposite side, cellar and storage premises with entrance to the garden. Upstairs, a great room with balcony above main entrance and master bedroom shares a bath. Also, there are two children`s bedrooms with exercise room.
Bedrooms: 5
Baths:         2
Living Area: 3,013 sq.ft. 
Width: 45' Depth: 51'
Construction of the building began in 2012 and is scheduled to be completed in 2015.

Contemporary style house. Part 2

  The recent project was designed in 2012 became on the front burner by reason of perfect match of shape and color for 3d rendering. A background information about the original project I had posted in May, 2013 and I`ve got some random preliminary drawings to upload today.
  The piled foundations and retaining walls were used in original project was mainly responsible for abandonment of a structural design. A steep grade of the site and near ground level making the use of deep traditional foundations uneconomic. Therefore a project was completed at the stage of conceptual design, further plans were dropped due to lack of funding.
Short description.
The open-concept living space spills out to a large rear deck on the first level. Upstairs, two bedroom and exercise room have acces to a second-story skylight brightens the dining room. A master bedroom shares a bath with big walk in closet on the upper floor. 
Take the stairs to the lower level, where another two guest bedroom, a sauna, and a swimming pool create a comfortable retreat for special guests. 

A geometric house plan offer flexible space and flexible usage, allowing the homeowner to tailor the home's functionality to their lifestyle.
