Right-Sizing Your Homes: Design to Eliminate Excess & Add Appeal FEBRUARY 6, 2014 | 8 – 9:00 AM Presenter(s): Heather McCune // Bassenian/Lagoni Architects, Newport Beach, CA Joe Digrado, CAASH, AIA // Danielian Associates, Irvine, CA Doug Van Lerberghe // KEPHART community :: planning :: architecture, Denver, CO
Session Description One of the keys to successful home design is the ability to create budget and space conscious plans that still offer the right details and amenities that the market desires. This session explores how to "right size" homes, and will show you how to create effective and efficient design details within a given space while staying on budget. You'll walk away with best practices for creating lean homes without sacrificing the wants and needs of today's buyer.
Learning Outcomes Understand how to make homes as lean as possible while creating inexpensive spaces that will appeal to buyers. Analyze design details (interior design and architectural elements) that buyers want. Explore ideas for rooms that may be eliminated or combined in order to make the plans leaner. Review unique ideas for budget-conscious design options.
