When searching for a new house plan, functional living spaces and curb appeal are of the utmost importance. Distinctive design elements like Palladian dormers, wraparound porches and angled floor plans ensure that a home will be comfortable while also enhancing the streetscape. Timeless house plan designs should not be dull or uninteresting, but rather should incorporate home design elements that offer lasting appeal.

Redefining functionality for today's homeowner, Donald A. Gardner Architects is continually striving to innovate the field of residential design. We offer floor plan and home design elements that meet the needs of today's families, combining striking appearances and practicality. Keep watching this section as we add to our innovative collection of house plans with unique design elements!

Angled Floor Plans Angled Floor Plans

House plans that utilize angular shapes ensure that a home will stand out from the rest. Floor plans with unique angles add architectural interest and have an elegant feel without sacrificing an open floor plan. These home plans include plans with courtyards for outdoor leisure, house plans with courtyard garages, and many floorplans with angled exteriors which create interesting spaces in the rear of the home. Angled rear exterior spaces create exceptional outdoor living areas, many of which are under roof.

As cookie-cutter homes continue to be built in neighborhoods across the United States, Donald A. Gardner Architects strives to break out of the mold with an innovative portfolio of house plans designed to create streetscapes with unique curb appeal. With a refreshing view of the traditional farm house plan, Donald A. Gardner Architects incorporates natural light into living spaces with home plans incorporating a new dormer concept, featuring shed dormers that flank a large center Palladian window.

A hallmark of elegant country style, the Palladian window flanked by smaller dormer windows gives a sophisticated look to a comfortable style. The large Palladian window creates dramatic curb appeal, allows more natural light into the home and makes smaller spaces feel larger.

Wraparound Porch House Plans House Plans with Wraparound Porches

Nothing emphasizes the country, farmhouse or Victorian house plan with more grace than a wraparound porch. As outdoor living spaces become more important to today's homeowners, a house plan with a timeless wraparound porch increases the value and curb appeal of the home with ease. No country or farmhouse home plan is complete without an expansive porch to relax and welcome guests.

Curved Spaces House Plans House Plans with Curved Spaces

Home plans that literally think outside the box by trading flat, straight walls and ceilings for curved or circular ones generate interest and give a rich feeling to any size or style of home design. Whether the floor plan incorporates a round room – such as a completely circular study – or simply features a wall of curved windows designed to collect expansive views, curved lines add value and a feeling of prestige to your home.
