The House Review design team offers a peek at sketches of concept designs and dream projects.
As architects and designers, we don’t often have the opportunity to share what’s on our boards. First, for some of our newer (and younger) readers, “on the boards” refers to the days when a pen and pencil were used to hand-draw sketches for new projects. For some of us, that’s still the early part of the design process. For others, the initial sketches begin directly in a CAD program. Either way, the following pages offer a glimpse of what’s “on the boards” of our design team. You’ll see concepts ranging from a compound of small cottages to an amazing luxury home with exciting and innovative exterior design details. Along with some practical new ideas for the typical suburban single-family home in a cul-de-sac, there’s also a timely design for Baby Boomers who want to spend more time traveling in their motor home.
