Architectural design

Introduction to Architectural DesignEdit

Basic house designEdit

In Residential home design, listed below are some basic design types. There are many types, from small huts, to large expansive, multi-level mansions and castles.

Some basic types are:

  1. One-story Ranch houses
  2. One and One-half houses
  3. Two story houses
  4. Split-level houses

Each type has strengths, and weaknesses, which must be accounted for, and considered before making a choice. Designs can be "ordered" or classical in nature, or can be very asymetrical and seemingly disordered.
