I love this design but I think the front porch will need to be reduced greatly in size to meet setback requirements. It would be great to see this paired with a front fireplace and outdoor living area.
Like the main living roof concept. Pool...? Cool, but not necessary. Incorporated Vastu! Courtyard will get great light. Used topo & Google earth.
The submission exceeded the project brief with an innovative solution; adding additional space to the sunroom and providing a covered entertaining area of the sunroom. The provision of doors on 3 sides integrates the room with the garden.
Thanks for spending time on the parking issues. Certainly this is one of the most pressing issues for the developer given the zoning location of this property which requires at least 3 off site spaces. Really nice graphics.
Design is well-thought-out and clearly defined.
Arc86...thank you for your submission. This is a beautiful house and is a substantial re-envisioning of our current home. In the end we might have some challenges with the extensive brick work and we do not want the first floor views to become impacted by the additional pillars and porches that shade the 1st floor considerably. We did enjoy thinking through the possibilities of this design.
Very cool design. I like the roof angles exempt the high peaked roofs. Need to change that. Don't like the line drawings
This is exactly what I envisioned for a miniature castle. We especially liked the mixing of the square walls with the later Gothic round turret style and the multiple patios and courtyard. We do have some issues with the internal floor plan and the elevations, but overall this was a wonderful submission. Thank you so much for participating in the contest! We have not decided which house we will actually build. Please send your contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd be willing to perform additional follow-on work. Thanks again for participating in this competition.
What a beautiful design. We appreciate all of the detail that you put into this project. Your idea of pushing the upper level kitchen out and into the new build-out was great! Very nice job overall - thank you for your great ideas.
Adequate design, but the aesthetics of the design were not up to the mark. I appreciate that all functional aspects have been incorporated in the design, but the design aspects of the floor plan were not that pleasing.
Overall seemed to really pay attention to what I was looking for functionality-wise--incorporated everything I mentioned. Love the first floor layout, the roof deck, and the outdoor spaces. The second floor layout seemed to have too many bedrooms and I don't like having to walk through the closet to get to the master bedroom. That said, it is the best design I had seen at the time of submission.
Thank you for taking the time and effort to prepare a submission. We sincerely appreciate the concept. We are not only impressed by the exterior rendering, we all strongly agreed you prepared a very nice presentation. The section site plan was very functional and detailed. And the graphic layout was also well done. Thank you! We are maintaining a list of qualified architects for future submissions. If interested, please forward your contact information to email@example.com. We would also be interested in working with you further in some capacity.
