That's very impressive, plinko. I'm going to sticky this thread in the hopes that others will be encouraged to share their work.

I'll post one more for now. This is a soon to be under construction contemporary home in Ventura, CA. The house sits on a very narrow lot that cascades down a canyon. The most interesting part about this house is that it is essentially designed upsidedown in terms of program. While most of the house faces the canyon, the topmost floor (the Entry Floor) has views back down towards the ocean and the Ventura pier.

The lowest level (the Deck Level) has a home theater, a game room, a covered outdoor bar and eating area, and an infinity edge pool.

Cool pool idea, but there doesn't appear to be any basement windows, unless the bottom habitable floor is at the pool level.

Your stuff is interesting, proportional, and contextually sensitive. You should be proud of it.

I love the first house Plinko! When I'm ready for a new house, I should contact you about designing it. (It would have to be half this size though) I love the windows in the first house. Those are amazing. I'm always attracted to the windows first. The Victorian design reminds me of Biltmore Village, which I love! The kitchen, those doors, the flooring choices, I don't know where to start in telling you how beautiful it is.

This is a really cool thread! You guys are all very talented!

I hope its ok I post something of mine, because it is nothing that has or ever will be built, but is instead merely something I did for fun. (I start college next year)

This is meant to be an alternative to the many faux historic homes springing up all around Chicago. I wanted to design something very modern looking but at the same time could fit in well with Chicago's historic neighborhoods. I tried doing this by stressing the horizontal and using dark brick as the main material in the front. Anything that is not brick is prefab concrete (I think - i'm not sure what exactly its called).









The only reason the living room is so small is because I ran out of paper space. And yes, it did take nearly forever to draw the bricks.

The economy is kind of in the tank, the only recent project I've had any creative input in is this courtyard renovation in Harlem...

I was generally pleased with the end product of this design. There are a few things I might have done differently.

































the stucco looks great.
