Issue: 63% of Americans own and live in houses. 37% of Americans live in houses but rent them. This family of four wanted a house to own and a house that can adequately meet the requirements for their lifestyle.
Concept: The concept of this house was to have a welcoming and comfortable feeling. The family likes to host social events and parties so the floor plan is on the larger side. The living room, kitchen and entertainment area are grouped together on a open floor plan. The other rooms are the family room and and dining room are in more isolated rooms to have privacy. The upstairs is a bathroom a office for when they work at home and for the kids to do homework, the master bedroom and the bedroom for the twins. There is also a fitness room because they like to stay fit and a balcony attached to the master bedroom and fitness room because they love to enjoy nature.
Impact: This design is an appropriate design for the family that needs the house and will satisfy their needs and lifestyle.
