When we’re designing a house, we also talk about technology.
Experience, Expertise, & Accountability
The design of exceptional homes—from 3,000 square feet to 40,000 square feet and everything in between—requires thorough understanding of each client’s needs and desires. Our design team appreciates that individual aspirations are shaped by a lifetime of experiences. We encourage our clients to create virtual idea boards to help us capture preferences and inspiration.
Equally important to establishing the vision are site and context. We have extensive experience in designing for waterfront and mountain properties and understand how to utilize the sun’s path, views and wind to determine proper siting and maximize design. Moreover, with LEED accredited professionals, we have a keen interest and ability to integrate sustainable strategies into the design of clients’ homes at their request.
Advanced technology is woven into the design process and strategy at our firm. We use Revit for design development and construction documents. The use of 3D modeling and visualization allows our clients to quickly see the nuances of structural massing and volumes. The technology also benefits the contractor, establishing clarity of alignments and relationships from the beginning of construction. Beyond serving as a design and informational tool, our emphasis on technology and the use of 3D models underscores our effectiveness and efficiency.
In support of the company’s residential architecture, the Purple Cherry Interior Design Studio provides seamlessly coordinated interior architecture and décor. Finishes, wall coverings, and color selections; custom millwork, including kitchen cabinetry, coffered ceilings and built-in bookcases; flooring; lighting and plumbing fixtures; selection of furniture, upholstery, accessories, and window coverings; and curation and placement of artwork may be integrated into the scope of work as desired by the client. Successful projects reflect harmony from the scale and proportions of design down to the small details of refined living.
Throughout the process, Purple Cherry Architects is available to coordinate all aspects of a project. From conceptual design and consultant oversight to construction documentation, permitting, and construction administration, the firm’s proven practices and design approach have built an impressive portfolio of fine custom residences. As an extension of our services and successful relationships, we frequently partner with our residential project clients to design their commercial ventures. Additionally, at the heart of the firm’s non-profit work is our Purposeful Architecture studio — purposefularchitecture.com.
