House Design



Modern architecture was an architectural style that emerged with innovative technologies of construction, particularly the use of glass, steel, and reinforced concrete. It reflects the idea that form should follow function (functionalism) and embraces minimalism and a rejection of ornament. It emerged in the first half of the 20th century and became dominant after World War II until the 1980s.


Craftsman style came from the Arts and Crafts movement, that emerged in Europe and North America in the late 19th century, as a reaction to the Victorian architectural opulence and the Industrial Revolution as traditional craftsmen believed that mass production deteriorated the quality of goods. Thus began an era of handmade architecture that didn’t compromise on artistic detail. 
Craftsman builders left many of the structural elements of the house, such as beams and rafters, exposed to showcase the beauty of their work. Hand-finished details also became a hallmark of the style.

Tudor Revival

Tudor Revival architecture first manifested itself in domestic architecture in the United Kingdom in the latter half of the 19th century and eventually spread to Canada. Tudor Revival features tall mullioned windows, stone facades, a recessed front entryway, overhanging first floors above pillared porches, steeply pitched-roofs, dormer windows and the most prominent feature: the Tudor-style gables with half-timbered facade.

Château style or Chateauesque architecture style is based on the French chateaus of the 16th century in the Loire Valley of France. Being a revival style, Chateauesque homes are typically built as an asymmetrical plan. The design has many broken roof-lines and a facade consisting of recessing and protruding planes. The characteristics include steeply pitched hipped roofs that either rise to a high pyramidal or break to form a very low pitched or flat roof, multiple busy roof lines, multiple dormers either on the roof or breaking through the cornice, and stone finished veneer
