Your Guide to Architecture Terms and Design Options

Whether you are building a standalone structure in wine country, mountains, or along the coast, our guide will help you work effectively with an architect on your new project.

Common architectural terms are defined as a quick primer, followed by a checklist with more specific descriptions of building components and systems.

This is your decision-making guide if you are beginning a new architecture project.

The best architecture is a representation of the client, their values and tastes.
