Many desirable and attractive communities have home owners associations that require authentic traditional exterior architecture. Designing in these communities requires extensive knowledge and experience in the vocabularies details and features of many traditional styles.
I have over 30 years experience designing traditional homes in styles such as French Country, Spanish Revival, Northern Italian, and English Tudor. This has allowed me to enjoy working in communities with strict traditional guidelines while satisfying my clients "non traditional" tastes for their interiors.
The accompanying picture is a home I designed in Houston Texas that is based on the Tudor style of 19th century architect Sir Edwin Lutyens. The interior of this house is complimented with a modern kitchen, modern bathrooms, and living spaces giving it a fresh current use and feel.
