With each new project comes excitement, anxiousness, and the search for inspiration. We've recently been commissioned a Spanish Revival home, a style that was born as a result of the Panama-California Exposition which blossomed as a U.S. style movement from 1915 to 1931. It is a hybrid style, based on Renaissance Spanish architecture, and the architecture developed during the early Spanish colonization of North and South Americas. Specific style elements of a Spanish Revival house include courtyards and arcades, white stucco exteriors, terracotta roof tiles, painted tile, and ornamental iron work.
After initial conversations with the client, our projects begin by collecting inspiration from various interior, exterior, and landscape sources which we then translate into a design uniquely suited for our client. We then draw simple sketches to put our mental images to paper.
As the project progresses, we'll be posting more photos on the blog. Stay tuned!
