studiosmith Architecture LLC is set to team with Dilworth Development of Auburn, Alabama once again to design the Showcase Home for East Alabama Living Magazine. We had great success together in the design of s2Arch’s first Showcase Home in 2011 (see previous post). The design and marketing was able to procure a buyer for the house before the design work was completed. These homes are designed and built as speculative projects and the goal is, naturally, to provide an attractive product for a broad range of prospective buyers in the area. The design planning can be difficult because as an architect your goal is to design a great home for a client and in these cases, the developer, realtor and other professionals with skin in the game become the client.
This year’s home is set to be built in a new Auburn neighborhood for which we designed a series of homes to establish an architectural character, created a logo for the neighborhood and provided a streescape rendering for marketing.
Some of the architectural character for the development: Check back for the development of this home. Also see http://www.dilworthdevelopment.com for the developer/builder as well as East Alabama Living magazine as they highlight this project in a four-part series.
