Residential Design/Build Studio - Homes for 2018 and Beyond

ARCH 476 | Spring 2018
Visiting Lecturer Tom Loew


The Residential Design-Build studio affords students the opportunity of exploring design process as it directly relates to the practice of custom home design and the fabrication of residential scale projects.  The Studio is designed to promote creative solutions which balance design exploration with the demands associated with today’s residential Architectural Practice. 

Students’ works will consider a wide array of factors which contribute to a design’s uniqueness, appropriateness, and overall success.  Each project shall demonstrate a design synthesis in response to specific client program needs, budget parameters and physical conditions, all of which perpetually influence and inform the direction of design thinking.  The completed Studio works shall represent responsive, innovative, and buildable architectural solutions.
