Architectural Design

Our Custom Home Design Process

At Nathan Good Architects, our design process unfolds in five distinct phases: Pre-Design, Schematic Design, Design Development, Construction Documents, and Construction Administration.

Our journey begins with the Pre-design phase, where we thoroughly explore the project site and engage in client discussions to align vision and financial goals. We then transition to the Schematic Design phase, where we skillfully render concepts into tangible sketches, merging client aspirations with custom-crafted, distinctive designs.

In the subsequent phases – Design Development, Construction Documents, and Construction Administration – we meticulously refine each element, translate designs into precise documentation, and collaborate closely during the construction process to ensure smooth execution.

During each phase of our process, the design iterations provide a more concise picture of our clients’ needs and aspirations for their new space. Whether our clients prefer a modern, classic or more contemporary space, we will deliver. And with every custom home design, we prioritize adding energy-efficient features.

Throughout every phase of our design process, each iteration brings us closer to capturing an accurate reflection of our client’s vision. As we progress, we refine and distill preferences, ensuring that the end result aligns with desires. Whether our clients seek the sleek lines of a modern aesthetic, the timeless elegance of historical concepts, or the cutting-edge elements of a contemporary space, our architects embrace the vision.


Our Commitment to Sustainability

In our dedication to excellence, we go beyond aesthetics alone. With every custom home plan, we prioritize the integration of energy-efficient features. Sustainability isn’t just a trend or a buzz-word, it’s a fundamental consideration in our designs. We understand the importance of reducing environmental impacts while enhancing the comfort and functionality of each space we create. Our commitment to energy efficiency and “green” building ensures that every project we undertake fulfills our clients’ dreams while aligning with responsible environmental stewardship, leaving a lasting positive legacy for both our clients and the planet.
