ARCHITECT LOVE



I love a great Architect.  Today there are so many great choices for talented Architects.  If I were building a home today, I'm not sure which one I'd pick and even which style of home  because  I adore so many designs.  Wouldn't it be great to live like Barbara Streisand?  She apparently has one compound of different homes in all different styles.

The house pictured above is one of my fave places, and I'll tell you about the Architect further down.


Verdigris Vie recently posted a beautiful house drawn by the talented architectural firm of Backen, Gillam & Kroeger  I loved the pictures in the post




 ...and then the name rang a bell. This is the same firm I've loved for awhile.    I learned of them originally when I spotted this beautiful California home, on another blog,  also created by them:

 
 

So, this got me thinking.....I have a file of so many different Architect loves, and I wanted to share a few of my favorite Architect firms.

The very top picture  is from the San Antonio firm of Michael G. Imber Architects.  They have designed houses all over the US....and here's some fave examples of their work:

Southern Living Idea House Escondido

Alys Beach



Italian facades from Paddle Creek Architects:




European  facades from Claudia Ortiz Design Group:




Cottage design from Crisp Architects:



More cottage style from Arcanum Architecture:




European from Steve Giannetti:



Rustic farmhouse by Austin firm Geshcke Architects:

this is the concept idea one of my clients is currently building (see last post)


Spanish flair by the Austin firm of Hugh Jefferson Randolph Architects:


(notice the beautiful ceiling)
 or maybe something with a modern flair by Hugh:


And last but not least,  Vanguard Studios from Austin:


Both of these pics are computerized drawings of their Showhouse home currently being built in Spanish Oaks Austin.  The home tour will be ready this June! 



 Each one of the Architect firms I mentioned all have amazing portfolios.  I hope you'll take the time to check out their work on the highlighted links. 

Would definitely be a hard choice to choose if I had to build.
Which style would you build if it were your house?


Have a great day ,
