Ten Reasons to Hire an Architect
1. An Architect can help you create and focus your dream house into a built reality. Architects see the big picture. A skilled architect can help you develop and integrate your list of requirements with the other complex factors to create a unique Arizona home just for you by prioritizing your needs.
2. An Architect is a licensed professional. Architects are educated, trained, and tested in a large range of areas, including aesthetic design, ergonomics, sociology, ecology, law, building codes, construction materials and technology. This breadth of knowledge allows foresight when evaluating competing requirements and restrictions.
3. An Architect will solve your problems with creative, elegant solutions. Architects are trained to make buildings both functional and beautiful. An architect will be able to show you alternatives that you might not have considered possible.
4. An Architect is trained in communication. An architect has experience effectively communicating through written word, drawing, and verbally with the key members of the project including clients, contractors, engineers, and authorities in the manner best suited to the situation.
5. An Architect has experience. Most architects consider architecture a passion more than a vocation. They draw on past experience. They are an integral part of the design/construction community with contacts in all the fields.
6. An Architect can make your life easier! Architects can bring pictorial suggestions to the table and assist in decisions for space planning, materials, and finishes transforming your abstract ideas into a form you can visualize.
7. An Architect is cost effective. A well-conceived, designed, and coordinated project is more economical. Changes made on paper in the design phase are much less expensive than those made during construction.
8. Architecture is a good investment. Great design sells from consumer products to cities. A well designed home has a higher resale value.
9. An Architect can make your building project environmentally friendly. Skilled architects work with the environment to create spaces that are sustainable and comply with ever demanding energy performance requirements.
10. An Architect can guide you through an entire project as your advocate. An architect will be able to assist with every aspect of a project from choosing a site, city permitting, design review board submittals to construction administration. Whether you choose to start a project from the ground up or remodel an existing space, an architect will be able to help the project run smoothly during each stage avoiding disruptive surprises.

Arizona Residential Architects
INVITATION TO LAND OWNERS OR RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPERS The Arizona Residential Architects (ARA) is a distinguished organization of 15 leading residential architectural firms who would like to provide resources and design talent to land owners, real estate individuals or firms, builders, or residential developers for the purposes of creating a new community, neighborhood, or unique collection of homes. The ideal candidates would be seeking the assistance of the ARA as a creative design and/or development coordination partner to help facilitate new community or neighborhood planning ideas and initiatives. The ARA would bring the talents and experience of 15 uniquely diverse residential architectural firms to the projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s residential design opportunities. In addition, the ARA has developed a network of over 100 trade partners. This network includes residential builders, interior designers, residential product manufacturers or representatives, and trade service provision companies. All this knowledge, product resources and experience can be brought to benefit an identified project. The goal is to identify an opportunity where a parcel of land is between 2ac up to 15ac, or more, wherein the ARA Community Team can design a new inspiring residential neighborhood community that creates awareness and promotes new lifestyle and environmental initiatives incorporating best practices, including recognized platforms for sustainability, such as LEED, and/or Green building practices. The ideal opportunity would allow all 15 members of the ARA to design homes for this model community.
Contact Dale Gardon at (480) 948-9666 to make an appointment to meet with the ARA Community Design Team to discuss your potential opportunity.

Ron Brissette was an English Literature major at the University of Connecticut who spent most of his time in the scene shop at the school theater. After college he spent a few years in the professional theater as a technical director, scene and lighting designer. It was a great experience where a passion for design and technical excellence were born, but there had to be something else of permanence where culture, function, and physical environment could come together in an artful way. It had to be Architecture. At 27 he entered the Frank Lloyd Wright School. There he met Jeff, who later after some 15 years of separate career paths, would become his partner. Jeff came from a family construction background starting at a young age working during school breaks and summers. He developed a passion for art and drawing and a desire to study architecture. At 18 entered the Frank Lloyd Wright School. The rest is history with a portfolio of great clients and signature projects realized in many styles and places. A distinguishing feature is their commitment to remaining small and giving principal attention to all aspects of a project. This gives their clients the highest level of personal service and professionalism with the goal of providing unique and practical results for them at every turn of the process.

From concept to reality, Dale takes the vision each client has for their home and makes it a reality. Located directly off Market Street in DC Ranch, the award winning studio office looks more like a residence than a commercial building. Warm rich earth tones greet you at the door, and there is comfortable atmosphere that embraces you. Dale has designed homes ranging from 1,800 s.f to over 15,000 s.f. with budgets that span from $45 to over $1,200 p.s.f.

They blend those unique characteristics into a cohesive design composition in the architectural style desired by the client. Careful consideration is given to the site and orientation of the home, integrating the site topography, solar orientation, and views to the best advantage to create the finest living experience. From traditional to contemporary styles, each residence design that is created by the firm embraces a sense of comfort, and has the uniquely individual design elements that make it truly a custom home.

9834 E. Kalil Drive Scottsdale, Arizona 85260 firstname.lastname@example.org www.jameshanndesign.com 480.661.0517 480.510.1450 James Hann is an artist. Although Architecture is a technical discipline, to him, it is still an art form on a human scale. Licensed in several states, with over 35 years of experience, he strives to create design work as both sculpture and a functional living environment. Every commission is unique and must meet certain criteria to satisfy a client. The process of design involves effective communication and being a good listener. "Understanding and meeting our clients' needs is probably the single most important factor in achieving success with a project. Architectural design is a very personal process ... from concept to completion." While many Architects' design work occurs within a fairly narrow design range, Hann prefers to be known for his creative solutions involving a fairly wide range of design styles. His strength is in the diversity of his work and his ability to interpret his clients' needs without stylistic parameters. James Hann Design, AIA is "Art as Architecture where the greatest satisfaction is realizing his clients' dreams."

Following the design phases and completion of final construction documents Lee assists the client in building a team designed to guide the project from the perfectly matched builder and building budget to the interior designer.

What can you expect? Last time I wrote about “what is architecture” and published detail oriented photographs representing experience.This time the topic is expectation and what it looks like. For Jones Studio, it never looks the same. We tend not to repeat ourselves. Why? It’s obvious. The people who choose to collaborate with our studio are all different... different budgets, different behaviors, different sites... an unlimited range of constraints and opportunities. The following photo collection includes diverse examples reflecting an ongoing exploration of architectural response to climate, topography, culture, material, size, form, family values and individual expression. The appararent avoidance of “style” results from our ability to identify and develop the unique qualities of each new residential adventure. Therefore, NONE of these examples are similar to the home you can expect. “Probing even more deepliy into different possibilities one finds many different shapes are equally logical - some ugly, some exciting, some earthbound, some soaring.” - Eero Saarinen

To Kendle Design Collaborative, Modern Architecture is a direct response to the environment, the homeownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lifestyle, and the pursuit of timeless inspiration. Modern is a way of thinking about living that is a direct reflection of the environment and the natural elements surrounding it. Therefore, modern architecture is constantly evolving because as the environment changes, so does the design.
SAGUARO SOGNO RESIDENCE
MODERN VS. CONTEMPORARY Modern and contemporary architecture are different ideologies that are often confused. Any house can become contemporary if designed so the lines and finishes are clean and simplified. Modern Architecture is not a style. It is a mindset. Not about finishes nor minimal details but how to approach a design. It is the process of how to arrive at the solution, and what factors drive that solution.

The Union of Dwelling and Land Clint Miller’s childhood home was nestled in the hills of Southern California, where large expanses of living room windows framed landscaping, where honest, load-bearing wood beams both supported the home’s structure and adorned its interior. As a youngster, Clint felt a kinship with these simple structures and their textures and proportions, and to the views that revealed the surrounding environment. These early experiences helped shape Clint’s architectural quest to understand the intricate balance required to create a home that forges a natural relationship of dwelling and environment. For more than two decades now, Architect Clint Miller has striven to design homes that form a union with their site ... whether integrating into lush urban communities or growing organically from the surrounding desert ﬂora. Miller’s body of work balances delicate detail and bold composition, melding traditional techniques and materials with sensitive design and application. Each home expresses an organic relationship between site and design; each home respects and embraces its site. Clint’s residential projects have been featured in AIA Home Tours, honored in an AIA Homes of the Year competition, and recognized in an AIA Historical Preservation Exhibit. In March of 2010 he was honored as a Master of the Southwest by Phoenix Home and Garden magazine and has been featured several times on that publication’s cover.

Subject to property type, a minimum credit score of 680 and a minimum of 18-24 months of reserves, depending on loan size. (i.e. you must have at least enough money in reserve in your bank account to make 18-24 monthly mortgage payments [principal, interest, taxes and insurance] after your loan closes.)

Christine Wareing AIA Principal Architect
PO Box 25486 Scottsdale, Arizona 85255 email@example.com www.christyandco.com 480.483.0713 Christy & Company Architecture specializes in high-end custom residential projects, and have had the pleasure of working with great clients and sites for many years. We are team players, and enjoy working through the process with the design team, usually consisting of the interior designer, builder, engineers, landscape architect, lighting designer, automation (a/v) specialist, custom craftsmen and trades, and of course, the client. Christy & Company is dedicated to providing our clients with not just talented design, but with enjoying the best experience possible throughout the process of any project. We have embraced the mantra ‘Where Sanctuary is Sculpture’ which explains the company’s direction and focus, all of which is the culmination of Christy’s southwest upbringing and education, coupled with her innate sensibilities of design, that compliment clients’ diverse cultures and lifestyles with their high-end southwest properties. We believe our surroundings give us an experience that has a powerful effect on our quality of life. This concept is a notion that Christy became aware of at an early age and it has carried through in her work ever since. She founded the boutique firm over 10 years ago, even though her residential experience working on prestigious properties began several years earlier. Christy holds a Bachelor of Science in Design from Arizona State University and a Masters of Architecture from the University of New Mexico. She has been a registered Architect in Arizona since 1999.

CRAIG WICKERSHAM ARCHITECT Craig Wickersham, AIA 15863 N. Greenway-Hayden Loop #118 Scottsdale, Arizona 85260
firstname.lastname@example.org 480.609.6766 I designed my first home when I was 13 years old. This was not on a napkin. It was a full set of drawings for a construction company. Watching that home emerge from the ground the following year was nothing short of miraculous to me. This was the beginning of my love affair with architecture. Working with you to create your home so you can have that miraculous feeling is my life’s calling and greatest joy. I listen to your desires, respect your budget, and help you keep control from start to finish. I’ve had the privilege of training at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin. For more than 30 years, I’ve helped people bring their dreams to life through remodels, new-builds, and consulting. Your needs are distinct. One client, Michelle, had lived in Minnesota for years with her husband, three sons, and many close friends. When her husband asked her to move to Scottsdale to get out of the snow, she said yes, and engaged me to create a home. After several meetings, I knew something was holding her back. She finally shared how difficult it would be to leave her friends. I asked, “Would you consider allowing me to design a home for you and your friends? A mini resort, if you will?” With tears in her eyes, she said, “That’s what I want! A place where my friends and family can come and visit, just like a resort!” So that’s what we did. When her home was finished, she invited 20 of her friends to stay for a week so we could meet. She told me, “Craig, you really listened to me. You cared about my goals.” My team and I care about your vision, your dream, and your goals. We listen as much for what’s not being said, as what is. We would be proud to help you experience that miraculous feeling of living in the home of your dreams.
