Great design and appreciate not only the detail but how the designed broke up the straight lines on back of house with rounded porch. Nice work.
The layout of this house is our top choice. We like how the backside of the house totally lets the outside in. We thought it was genius to put the living and study room where the master bedroom and bath are now. The ability to now open the living room to backyard creates a nice entertaining triangle with the kitchen and outdoor dinning area. High praise to how you extended the size of the kids bedrooms and enlarge their respective closets by moving the location of the bathroom. Upgrade like the add value to the home. And, finally, We also think the office is much better solution than what we have now. The only reason this is second place is because the cost of executing this plan will far exceed our budget driven by the extensive plumbing change that will be involved in moving the master bathroom from its current location to your new proposed location. And the budget was the tie breaker between our two top choices. Regardless, we truly appreciated your work here
Excellent rendering as well. We think the back deck is a masterpiece and love the choice of stone versus hardwood which doesnt age well and requires more maintenance. We think the fireplace is a little disruptive and would do one without the chimney. Primary reason this was second was because there was no front yard concept as a part of the submission
Good design but attention to doors is not there. Future loft idea is nice
We loved this design overall. The architect really nailed it when it comes to style - the outside of the house with the new addition looks BETTER than the current house. The new sections are well-proportioned and the roofline is attractive. We also liked how attentive the architect was to our photos and materials - the art studio idea and extra front outdoor sitting areas were really thoughtful. In terms of negatives, I think the kitchen was a bit on the small side and might be hard to interact with folks in the family room from there. We found that the dining room got more of the windows and were worried that the family room would remain a bit dark. Thank you very much for your submission.
I like the Old South charm, especially on the wide porch version. If cost were no object we might want to build a porch in this style. However, I think a smaller portico style is a better investment right now, and this design is less practical than the alternatives. It would require widening the foundation of the existing stoop, and the wood fencing on the roof would have relatively high maintenance costs. My brother pointed out that if you stare at it enough it looks like the mouth of a hippo (not necessarily a bad thing!)
Thank you for your hard work. This fit our design criteria the best. Could we see a couple renders for the other side of the office like you completed for the west side? This will be nice to have around the office to show people how it will look. Congrats!
I like the idea of a different material in the bottom right but I was hoping for a design different from what I already had. Update: I liked your first design better. Even though it was using what I already had it was the best to date. It was less busy than this.
Very creative use of space, everyone loves the reception/optical. The exam room doors are on opposite sides to each other, so to go from one exam room to another if they are not the rooms that are side by side requires that you walk a long way which is impractical. We will use your ideas for the reception and patient waiting combines with another floor plan for the exam rooms.
Spectacular use of windows to provide lots of Southern light to the units. Great graphics. Post modern approach would work in brick, stucco or limestone.
Arc129...thank you for your thoughtful submission. We like a number of elements of your design. We did not select this entry as our winner as it did not make great use of an open common area or great room which is a trademark of the craftsman style and it did not make great use of the ocean views from common areas. Also, the use of pillars for the extended deck would create impairments to the beautiful expansive views from the 1st flow.
Wow, this one is amazing! What is the number of seats in this design?
