Themed Design


Theme is another approach that supports the design and budgeting of a project. The featured home had a strong design theme that reflected a historic architectural style. Decisions were made based on the interpretation of appropriateness to the style. We researched photos and publications, to achieve the right combination of products and finishes to compliment the architecture.

Even the floor plan can be influenced by architectural style. Since vernacular architecture was most-often designed within a regional climate, the lifestyle of the occupants dictated how spaces were used and related to each other. Porches, roof pitch and exterior finishes are the most recognized influences.

Additional benefits to the themed design approach include, timeless appeal, enhanced lifestyle, energy efficiency and improved comfort. Feel free to ask how we can help you benefit from this and other aspects of functional design.
