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 believes that good design can be found in every period and style of architecture.
Accurate examples are available to us in architectural history, literature, and travel. Authentic historical design does not keep us from using the environmentally-conscious principles of sustainability, modern construction techniques, and detailing. The goal of new-historical home design is not to blindly copy historical structures, but rather to echo their forms, proportions, detail, massing, and character of a particular style.
