Good design occurs in every period and style of residential architecture
The new-historical home design practice by residential architect Steve Chambers uses the scale, construction techniques, materials, colors, and details that reference authentic examples of a particular historical style. Many of Chambers Architects’ clients want homes that reflect their heritage, cultural backgrounds, interests, and familial history. Our firm appreciates that good design occurs in every period and style of residential architecture and that there is much joy associated with research and effort to preserve the integrity of a particular design.
We strive to reference accurate examples, available to us in architectural history, literature, and travel. We also believe that authentic historical design does not keep us from using the environmentally-conscious principles of sustainability, and modern construction techniques and detailing. The goal of new-historical home design is not to blindly copy historical structures, but rather to echo the forms, proportions, detail, massing, and character of a particular style of residential architecture.
