Goethe has called architecture “frozen music”. The creativity, timelessness and combination of lyrics and melody in a great piece of music are similar to the harmony of form and function found in well-executed residential architecture.
Owners, of course, remain able to choose any architect that they wish as the choices included in this list are offered only as vetted, desirable options. To achieve that goal, three eminent architectural firms have been selected to provide both diversity and a range of options to owners. Each has an impressive portfolio featuring both traditional and contemporary residences, a commitment to sustainability / preservation practices, a history of designing homes compatible with this special environment and an impeccable professional reputation. Each have visited the Preserve and demonstrated their commitment by preparing the submissions that follow. The Spectacular homesites on the Preserve offer a blank canvas for an exciting collaboration between these talented architects and discerning owners. These architects not only know how to achieve harmony between nature and structure but understand the difference between designing a home rather than a house.
Contact information is included to foster discussions between any interested owners and the architects that they may wish to consider.

ARCHER & BUCHANAN ARCHITECTURE knows that when clients build, they are making an enormous commitment of time and money to what is expected to be a valuable and productive investment. We believe our prime responsibility is to be good stewards of the resources entrusted to us. This task includes adherence to budget, respect for time and schedule, and the prudent use of land, labor, natural resources and materials. Our design should enhance its environment and grow in value over time.
