Four Styles, One Floor Plan Project Finished

IMG_1718.JPGSeeing the English Tudor, Spanish Colonial, Craftsman and French Country designs side-by-side, it’s easy to see how the same plan can be modified to suit each client’s style preference. When I started this project, I had a favorite design; by the end of the project, surprisingly it had changed!

Spanish Colonial

Spanish Colonial Perhaps the most challenging part of this rendering was effectively portraying that authentic clay tile roof. It was well worth the effort as that, along with the graceful porch arches really make for a charming abode.  I chose stately cactus and red yucca to add to the appeal. The yucca plants create some textural interest without impeding the view of the front porch.  Those pavement stones with moss growing in between lead the eye right up to the entry. Another gorgeous design from the Bainbridge team.

Four Styles, Same Floorplan

Challenge: Portray the same floor plan in four different styles: Craftsman, French Country, Spanish Colonial and Tudor.

What a cool concept from the team at Bainbridge Design Group.  How do we communicate to the viewer the idea that they are looking at essentially the same house but with a different look dependent on the client’s own style preference?  Idea: Keep the trees the same in all four renderings so that it’s obvious it’s the same lot. Let’s see  how to make that work.

So that the focus will remain on the house, I think simple trees, but ones with strong forms will work well. Stay tuned to see the project develop.
