    French Country Architecture

    Much credit is given to war journalists and GI’s returning from WWI for bringing a glimpse of the French countryside home to the states. At that time WWI was the most photographed war in history and those photographs inspired many architects to adapt French styles of architecture that have become most common to modern American residential design.

  • Classic Italian Renaissance Architecture

    Classic Italian Renaissance Architecture became popular in the United States between 1890 and 1935. It normally is symmetrical in design, has a low pitched ceramic tile roof with broad overhanging eaves and decorative brackets beneath. The upper story windows are smaller than the ones below and the front entry is often recessed and accented by arches with classical columns or pilasters.

  • Colonial Revival Architecture

    Colonial Revival refers to the entire rebirth of interest in the early English and Dutch houses along the U.S. Atlantic seaboard, a period that spanned 75 years from 1880 to 1955. This rebirth also influenced many other architectural styles including: Georgian, Adam, Queen Anne and Shingle. You will tend to find many over lapping details that each style share. Our model, Jamestown Harbor, is a two story side to side straight gable roof with single story wings built to look as though they were additions to the home.

These materials offer the rugged exterior coupled with the refined interiors that emulate the architectural design of Tuscany. Sight lines and ease of circulation enhanced by natural light appealing to an indoor and outdoor living experience.

  • French Provincial Architecture

    Often times all French architecture gets labeled as “French Country” when in fact there are several sub types including: Urban, Rural, French Eclectic, Asymmetrical, Towered and French Provincial.* French Provincial will often have the characteristics of a steep pitched roof, tall second story windows that often have an arched top, a centered entry, and details that offer a more formal than rustic elevation.

  • Irish Country Manor Architecture

    The emergence of the Irish Country Manor home signaled the decline of the use of the Fortified home that was so prevalent in 16th and early 17th century Ireland. It also signaled a change in society as architecture finally moved away from the Medieval period of Defendable Fortified homes to the Modern era of Undefendable Country Manor homes.

  • Deconstruction-Contemporary Architecture

    What is Deconstruction? Deconstruction or Deconstructivism is an approach to building design, which attempts to view architecture in bits and pieces. The basic elements of architecture are dismantled. Deconstructivist buildings may appear to have no visual logic. They may appear to be made up of unrelated, disharmonious abstract forms. Deconstructivism ideas are borrowed from the French philosopher Jacques Derrida.
