Different clients have different needs so we offer multiple levels of design services.
The benefit to you is that you choose the level of service and support you want from limited custom to full custom plus. This puts you in control of selecting the level and service and detail that’s important to you.
● Limited Custom – you want a custom house, but prefer to select finishes
● Full Custom – you want a fully customizable home from start to finish in style that is
unique to you.
● Full Custom Plus – you want a completely customized home down to the artwork on the walls. We create continuity through every aspect of your home and curate a space that has dimension and allows your personality so shine through in every detail.
Sustainability is a growing focus in our field and we strive to make our designs functional, beautiful and environmentally friendly. We’re proud to be one of the few architects in the Midwest region to specialize in Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF); a unique building technology that is tornado resistant and has a thermal transfer resistance four times that of standard house construction.
Beyond the buzzword of green homes, we have an understanding of the holistic approach to sustainable design. Travis Willson is a subject matter expert on sustainable design and has given presentations on a variety of topics in this area. For clients seeking full custom design, we walk you through the holistic approach to sustainable design process focusing on key elements.
Site Design – How do prevailing winds, sun angles, and site topography impact the design of
Building Envelope – The exterior of the building matters, providing continuous insulation
through technologies such as ICF (Insulated Concrete Forms), SIP (Structural Insulated Panels),
ZIP insulated sheathing.
Energy Usage – Utilizing energy-efficient LED lighting, Ground-source geo-thermal heating and
cooling, and mini-split systems
Energy Generation – Once we’ve reduced the amount of energy used, we can start to
generate our own energy to get close to net-zero energy usage.
Material Selection - Sustainable solutions allow for products that are created in an
environmentally friendly way that are long-lasting and healthy for you and your family.
