What is needed to make Architecture Successful?

An exquisite piece of architecture is more than just a beautifully designed home. While a homeowner may admire the floor to ceiling windows of a home featured in a magazine, it may be completely impractical for their climate or family life. A successful piece of architecture is ultimately a reflection of the homeowner and is very accommodating to the life they lead. Homeowners seeking a successful Kansas City home project should take the points below into account.

Individualization. Architecture is an extension of oneself like music is an extension of a musician. The stereotypical architect that designs architecture based on his or her own whims and eccentricities will not be successful. One client may prefer a stainless steel fireplace, while an avid outdoorsman may prefer a more natural material like stone. Whatever the specific piece, architecture should contain the specific input of the homeowner.

No universal solution. There is no one way to design any aspect of a home. The correct solution for any architectural matter is a reflection of the context of the project. Factors such as the local climate, the client’s lifestyle and site conditions will ultimately determine the right solution.

Reflects the client. The unique quirks, humor and preferences of the individuals living in the home will make it their own. Friends, family and loved ones should clearly see the connection between the homeowner and their home.
