Caldwell-Cline Architects and Designers primary focus has always been in the field of residential architecture, whether the design of a custom home specifically to meet the needs of an individual homeowner or the design of a library of homes to create a unique community. Through working with hundreds of homeowners we have developed a process in which we design a home based on the exact desires of the homeowner while taking into consideration the many factors that will make the home function on a daily basis. Our involvement with both custom and speculative homes allows us to design the speculative homes incorporating the features reflected and desired by our custom clients. It also allows us to design the custom homes with a consideration for the future marketability of the home if this is a concern of the homeowner.
Involvement from initial design through the construction process and the selection of materials and colors, allows us to create a home that is designed to meet the needs of both the client and the market.
In every neighborhood or community the residential living spaces are typically supported with an infrastructure of commercial architecture. These include community amenity clubhouses, golf course clubhouses, retail facilities, office buildings and higher density residential. At Caldwell-Cline we have worked with many developers to design these structures in a way that is complimentary to the community from both an aesthetic and functional perspective. All of the facilities as mentioned above, directly benefit from design that is of a residential scale and ultimately relates to the end user and creates a space that is inviting and people friendly. As with the design of our residential projects our involvement from initial conception to the selection of materials and colors, allows us to create a structure that is both functional and aesthetically complimentary of the community.
To facilitate this portion of our clientele we are certified by The National Council of Architectural Registration Boards and are currently registered to practice architecture in Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina and Alabama.
During the initial phase of any project it is critical to determine the best use for the property and how the elements that will be developed will relate to each other and the surrounding community. This is important whether we are designing a single residence, a community with several homes, a larger collection of homes or a mixed use development that will incorporate both residential and commercial elements. The advantage of working with Caldwell-Cline during the initial landplanning phase is that we take into consideration the design of the homes or commercial buildings in conjunction with their relationship to the site. Lot width, location of driveways and parking, pedestrian circulation and lot yield, are all factors that affect both the landplan and the design of the structures. As we design the layout of the community we are also considering how the individual homes will be affected by the decisions that are made during this early design process.
The design of the initial land plan is a valuable tool to give direction to the civil engineer for final construction documents, for zoning applications or for initial feasibility and lot yield studies.
