What is Residential Architecture?

Residential architecture focuses on building and designing residences and living spaces that are both functional and safe. This field specifically attends to the different needs, functions, designs, and dwellings of private residences.

What Types of Buildings Are Within The Scope Of Residential Architecture?

Essentially, any space, building, or dwelling that serves as a non-commercial living space fall under residential architecture. Residential architecture projects include but are not limited to single-attached family homes like ranches, bungalows, villas, mansions, and multi-family spaces like apartment and condominium buildings, duplex homes, co-ops, and townhouses.

Why Hire An Architect For Your Residential Project?

There are many crucial decisions to be made when kickstarting a residential project. From determining the appropriate and needed square footage to planning and accounting for all electrical and wiring needs and researching design customization ideas. The list could go on, and one thing's for sure: all these tasks need to be supervised by a professional.


So, why should you hire an architect?


1. Customize your needs and lifestyle


Clients normally have a general idea of what they think they need when building a residential building. It’s an architect’s job to listen to your suggestions and understand the purpose of each space, allowing the architect to come up with designs and execute plans that perfectly depict your vision while also proposing a suggested layout for the best use.


Rooms can easily be designed directly by a proposal, but a good architect will identify different ways to maximize the space while also laying out different options so you could see the space in a new perspective as it reflects your needs and lifestyle as interpreted by the architect.


2. Fitting the building into the site


Your land is ready, and your vision is clear. Now how do you turn this into reality?


Believe it or not, architects can find ways to perfectly marry the structure to the site. Architects know the basics and complexities of designing your space while also efficiently working on the given space. The architect plans and provides often unnoticeable and neglected details like the best use for entry or exit, parking space, landscape, utilities, wiring, and electrical.


3. Make the most out of your materials


It is never an architect’s job to choose expensive materials to build your home. Rather, it is an architect’s job to ascribe value to which materials are chosen. Upon designing and discussing a residential project, the architect usually leads the discussion of the use of each material. Your architect may:


  • Consider the use of eco-friendly options for furniture and appliances that promote sustainable living

  • Take an already existing (can be but not necessarily historic) portion of a building or supplies and use these to design a particular space or structure

  • Reconstruct memorabilia or a family heirloom and turn it into a memorable and timeless space


4. Get fewer expenses


If there’s one common myth about hiring architects, it’s probably this one: hiring an architect is costly and you may spend over the budget.


The truth is, it’s not! Along with fitting the building with the site provided, another significant role of an architect is to manage the project while keeping expenses within the budget. That already includes planning the entire thing--yes, even utility costs--for the present and the years to come. An architect’s goal is to always provide an energy-efficient option without adding cost.


5. Project representative


Hiring an architect means having someone to serve as your mouthpiece. Your architect acts as a representative and a bridge between you and the contractor. The representative listens to you while also providing options and suggestions to know what you desire. As a result, you get a customized experience of building your home as you can see the details of your vision come together.

Remarkable, High-End Residential Architecture

In today’s generation, cookie-cutter homes are often the most affordable and practical choice, leaving remarkable and high-end residential architecture insignificant as an exceptional specialty. You can buy a house, but you don’t get the same customized experience as when you hire an entire residential architecture team.


Here at APL Architects, we aim to provide avant-garde, high-end residential architectures that introduce next-level design that is effective, practical, and smart. We believe that every new project is an opportunity to deliver something extraordinary, whether it’s a new-build home, a property extension, or restoration. Our approach continues to evolve as we see fit, giving space solutions to our clients while also developing a lifestyle that is fit for future settings.
