To construct homes economically, builders rely on a limited number of standardized floor plans. At the same time, they must respond to demand for unique and varied exteriors across all market segments. Careful attention to details and materials allows cost-efficient plan repetition while delivering interesting and varied streetscapes, even when identical floor plans are set side by side. These four designs marry economy with creativity to satisfy a diverse range of homebuyers:

 

THE VILLAS AT SEVEN DESERT MOUNTAIN, PLAN 2Y, designed by Robert Hidey Architects

WUTHRIDGE RESIDENCES PLAN E, designed by Larry W. Garnett

CATIE, designed by TK Design & Associates

THE DELRAY, designed by GMD Design Group
