Introduction to Architectural Design[edit | edit source]

Basic house design[edit | edit source]

In Residential home design, listed below are some basic design types. There are many types, from small huts, to large expansive, multi-level mansions and castles.

Some basic types are:

  1. One-story Ranch houses
  2. One and One-half houses
  3. Two story houses
  4. Split-level houses

Each type has strengths, and weaknesses, which must be accounted for, and considered before making a choice. Designs can be "ordered" or classical in nature, or can be very asymetrical and seemingly disordered.
