Architectural Statements in Home Design

From Clean Lines to Complex Solutions

Making a statement with the design of your home starts with your architect. Whether you are building a sprawling home at the foot of the mountains in Jackson Hole, WY, or designing the beach house of your dreams on the majestic islands of Hawai’i, your home can make a statement while seamlessly integrating impeccable views.

Architects in Hawai’i have different considerations to make when curating a home as opposed to the architects in Jackson Hole. This is why it’s so important to connect with a local designer before you break ground on a project. Striking architectural design should never detract from the setting of your home, and similarly, must be developed with consideration for the area’s climate and environmental requirements.

Of course, what kind of statement you choose to make with your home design has much to do with your personal preference. In wide-open spaces like Okanagan Valley, BC, or Scottsdale, AZ, some homeowners like to defy gravity with tall, reaching roofs. Others prefer to keep their homes low, taking advantage of the space by sprawling outwards.

Cerused wood – a finishing technique that emphasizes the natural grain of the wood – adds an additional touch of sophistication to the wood-heavy modern farmhouse design.

Your dream home often says something about you, the life you lead, and the place you call home. Whether you choose to match your home finishes to the local landscape or celebrate your home with complex, modern design elements, your home can become a piece of the scenery, and a statement to be admired by family, friends, neighbors, and visitors to come.
