House Construction: Facade

I designed a new front façade for our hi-ranch. Because the front of the house already took inspiration from the Neoclassical Revival, I wanted to visually portray how the pediment would have traditionally been supported. I worked with the contractor to develop a solution for creating a faux lintel so that it would appear proportionally correct in relation to the pediment.

A half round transom window and double door were also part of my design. The intention was to maximize the size of the window, allowing natural light inside the entrance, while maintaining proper proportions with the rest of the exterior. The entrance facade was finished in stucco.
