HomeSmith architecture was established in 2002 with the purpose of helping its clients to realize the full potential of their projects by first discovering the possibilities. This requires approaching every project with an attitude of curiosity, optimism, and joy. We know that to discover those possibilities there must be a deep understanding of the needs, goals and constraints of the project and, perhaps most importantly, the people who will use the building.
Creating beautiful, well designed buildings that rest comfortably in their settings, are extremely functional, energy efficient and long lasting is what HSA is known for. We offer a wide range of architectural services - from planning and program development, through design and construction documents, to on-site inspection and contract administration. Our firm is purposefully small so that each client receives one-on-one attention through the entire process. We maintain a consistently high level of professional care and responsibility on each job
HomeSmith architecture uses the latest BIM (Building Information Modeling) software which allows us to create virtual 3 dimensional computer models of our designs. Each element in the design can be carefully considered in its relationship to the whole and then visually communicated to the client and contractor in ways not previously possible. What will it look like to drive up to the building, walk through the front door, and sit at your desk? How will the building sit on the land? How will the sun come through the windows in the middle of the day? What will the buildings energy consumption look like? All these questions can be explored in great detail before one shovel of dirt is moved on the site. Architectural plans can be difficult for clients to interact with, but walking through a virtual model is an excellent way to explore your building. The confidence this gives to our clients cannot be overstated.
