My design concept is based on your request notes. So I didn’t try totally new concept and providing brand new design project from scratch. I’m offering you a concept that adds new elements that are unique but also compatible with the existing structure. The height of walls from foundation to the facia is 4.00 m’ (13’). This is maximum height, and you can make it lower. At the Patio area I came with pergola. The windows and doors are unique colonial style. The roof is divided in two parts on side of central Entry area covered with pitched roof. All material specified at file Material.png. The proposed roof covering is Eagle Roofing Tiles, but could be something else. Colors of materials are random but we could do variations.
The creativity and technology are formative moments of the same reality as thought and action, planning and implementation. So if you want present your vision successfully you need to use more than one design tools. In this case I use Sketchup 2019, Revit 2016, AutoCAD Architecture 2017, and Adobe Photoshop.

Hi Chief! I just want to know what I have done wrong. is the format? If you think I misunderstand the plans, such as the entrance columns, or the proposal of the covered outdoor terrace. It feels horrible that they ignore you. I don't know how to explain it, or if you have experienced that discriminatory situation but it is not pleasant. I have only made an effort to participate in your project. I would appreciate any comments, even just to say that my entry is trash. I prefer to hear that to can grow up. I hope you understud my feelings!?: P blessings!

#8 MEDITERRANEAN ELEVATION DESIGN w/ 6/12 ROOF PITCH by Chris Rozycki - ENS Design Group
The previous design had a 4/12 pitch. This one is raised to a 6/12. To keep some of the peaks lower (if desired), you can do a mansard roof mixed with flat roof style.

#3 MEDITERRANEAN ELEVATION DESIGN by Chris Rozycki - ENS Design Group
Did a quick mock-up. Scares me that the payment is pending, so I'm not willing to invest too much time in this competition (too many fakes out there). Can send 3D render if design is chosen.

Hi! this is a 3D model of your proposed house plan according to my understanding. Do let me know if any correction or addition is needed in it. if it fullfills your requirement i can provide you with dwg elevation too. Do contact for any addition or misunderstanding in the model. The two files are in rvt. and stl. format for best viewing of the model. hope to hear from you soon..

Hello, Must I be a licensed or degreed architect to enter your contest? I chose between architecture and mechanical engineering and chose the later, but for my love of architecture I've always designed and/or modeled homes and structures as a hobby.

I think I can come up with great solutions, and being an engineer I guarantee they'll be structurally sound, all I can't do is sign off as a licensed architect, which may not be required depending on where you are and local codes.

I would love to throw in an entry regardless, but I have a lot of time constraints on me, such that I can't do it if my entry can't be considered. Please let me know and I'll have a look. Thanks

Thanks

Yes the main entry is between dining and den. I am just putting 2-3 steps to the entry. Driveway in front of the entry will be circular going from one street to the other. I will be okay with a 3D model first. The entry ceiling would be about 16-18 ft. The exterior design could reflect Traditional or Mediterranean look. Any other questions please feel free to ask
Thank you. salman

Hello. Just want to verify/clarify that the entry is the room in between the den and dining rooms, correct? Will there be steps up to the entry (If so, how much higher)? Would you be fine with a 3D model first and then DWG files after for the 4 exterior side views and roof design? Thanks and looks like a great floor plan design! Chris

1200 sqft apartment
I need a good design for a 1200 sqft apartment. The apartment must have 2 bedrooms with ensuite or shared bath, a guest bath ie sink & toilet, laundry area/room, kitchen, dining area, living room, clothes closets etc. Any and all ideas welcome. Top two designs win. See attached file for space. Note put in windows wherever you like except where noted. This is a second floor and stairs must remain as in the attached drawing.
House facade design within 7 days
We are currently in the process of finalizing the design for a modern villa in the DACH (Germany/Austria/Switzerland) region. We are super happy with the front of the villa. We love the design there. However, we are not happy with the backside facade of the villa. The design misses a clear structure. There is some design element here and there. Windows are a bit randomly positioned from an outside perspective (from the inside it makes sense). So far there is no real light concept for the backside. The idea of the contest is to find our dream design for the backside of our villa. Let me provide some details. There is more in the presentation As can be seen from the floor plan we are planning the stairs with two skybridges (which means there is some space between floor and window) at the right side of the left part of the building. The idea was to have one big window that covers at least two floors. Currently the third floor which is the „Cube“ on the roof is slighthly moved back. We have also planned a small water area in front of the left part of the house so that there is a mini bridge leading to the entrance door (similar to the design of another villa we included in the presentation). There is a stairs going down to the basement where we have on the left a guest room and on the right the living/bed room of the nanny’s flat. Above that is the window to an office with library. The closed space left of it is a wall in the living room which could potentially also become a window. Above that the three windows are kids room / bathroom windows At the top in the cube the three windows are in the bathroom Now so far we have refrained from adding more windows since on the first floor we have on the left the walk-in dressing room where windows are not needed .Then at the top in the cube to the right there is far right the sauna and next to it we need the wall for some fitness device installations inside. Having said that there is always an option to have kind of fake windows where behind them there is a wall. The outcome of the competition should be some illustrations with ideas for the backside of the house also showing or highlighting some materials to be used. In addition some idea with regards to the construction leading to the basement would be welcome. How would that look best in terms of stairs, green area etc. Since we need to finalize the renderings soon, there is only a week time before ending the competition. All details an be found in the presentation including all floor plans. Please feel free to be creative. However the shape oft he building is a given.
Single-Family Home Addition Concept
A concept design for a single-family home addition project consisting of four project elements: 1) Back door & Deck – Addition of a rear door to the back yard (right side if facing the house) and a deck. Door can be a maximum of 7ft 8in tall and 8ft wide. Deck can be a maximum of 22ft wide and 12ft 6in deep. Looking for a rear kid-friendly and kid-durable entertaining space concept that helps to bring the outdoors in, while promoting energy conservation. Include appropriate lighting and outdoor electrical power sources. Additional regarding of the back yard to create flat space, as able, without sacrificing existing trees. 2) Right-side Addition – Addition of a three-level addition to the right (North) side of the house (when facing house from the street). Looking for a concept that blends seamlessly into the size and style of the main structure. Addition is a maximum of 16ft wide and 32ft long, beginning at the back of the house and extending a maximum of 8ft in front of the main house structure. House sits on a sloping grade – first floor is roughly between 24in (back corner) to 40in (front corner) off ground level. Three level addition includes: a. Basement bedroom – Requires built in closet and at least one egress window. Ceiling height must be at least 8ft (presume recess lighting) b. 1st floor garage – Looking for concept large enough to accommodate an SUV plus storage, with a double door opening to the backyard. Will require steps up to back yard if additional grading is proposed (per item 1). c. 2nd floor master bedroom/bath – Looking for a concept that includes a “medium” sized master bath/en suite, and a closet large enough to serve 2+ adults 3) New Porch – Addition of a large porch extending from the left side of the new garage/addition (item 2 above) along the entire front of the house and wrapping into the new screened in porch (item 4 below). Looking for a concept that blends seamlessly into the size and style of the main structure, while presenting a level of comfort and style as its curb appeal. Porch can extend a maximum of 8ft from the front of the house. 4) Left-side Addition – Excavation of an additional below grade storage/laundry room on the left side of the house (when facing house from the street), and a wide walk out egress stairway from the basement to the back yard. Addition of a screened in porch at grade/first floor level. Below grade room/porch/egress stairs can extend a maximum of 7ft from the side of the house. Below grade room should have both a door into the basement and a separate external entrance to the back yard/egress stairway. First floor screened in porch should have an entrance from the front porch and a separate entrance into the main house. Addition should be capable of safely sustaining the weight of a future second story addition. Appropriate water mitigation measures should be included for all sub-grade components and stairways. Additional pictures and info can be provided upon request.
Knife and Vanishing Edge Pool

Small Lakefront Cottage Renovation
The attached Sketchup file is a scanned model of a 110+ year-old cottage in the woods on the shore of Lake Michigan. This is a very small house – approximately 984 square feet. A large part of the house is taken by the screened-in front porch that faces the lake. We are limited as to the changes we can make – for example, we cannot change the footprint. We would like to change the roofline, most likely to a “t-gable” roof, given the T-shape or L-shape of the footprint), and replace the kitchen and bath with updated and more useable spaces. We would like two bedrooms and one bath (1.5 if there were any way to do so). A similar cottage nearby has some loft space above a porch that the kids enjoy. Most of these places are open to the rafters, but ideally with bedrooms closed off. We would like to carve out room for a washer/ dryer station (vertical). Also love the idea of a two-sided fireplace in the main room and porch, although this may not be feasible: http://www.supremem.com/duet4seasons.php This is a seasonal place and is not currently insulated. Plumbing generally runs in a crawlspace. Hot water is currently provided by a tankless electric heater. Other cottages in the area have hot water heaters below the units in the crawlspaces. It is not critical that all the current porch space be retained. Please note that the scan is largely accurate.
