This one is for a professional couple with special requirements. It has to cost much less than most other houses, but they wanted a really nice architecturally designed look. Soellner came up with this solution. He consulted their builder and arrived at a concept that minimized the surface area of the exterior walls and roof, while providing a thrilling entry elevation. “The idea is to prioritize the budget on the things that really matter to the owners, and simplify the things that are not as important to them,” said Soellner. “In that manner, we can create designs that satisfy economic, aesthetic and functional requirements.”
Soellner ought to know, he’s been creating custom residential designs for clients for over 30 years. His first published residential project was in 1976 for a house he designed for a real estate broker on Sanibel Island, Florida. That home was featured in the Miami Herald and a House Beautiful publication. Since then, Soellner’s designs have been created for a variety of clients all over the United States and some clients in the Middle East. “Just last week, we got a call from a company in Shenzhen, Guangdong China, ” said Soellner. “We’re looking forward with interest as to what might happen there.”
Soellner tested several concepts before arriving at the one above, such as this one. The idea was to give the clients a lot of “bang for their buck.” He wanted the owners to get as much house with as many desired features as possible for their budget.
Another couple for whom Soellner is developing a new house design hails from Atlanta, Georgia. Soellner is creating a version of his famous Camp Creek Cottages for them, a 3-story that has a main level, a loft level and a walk-out basement for their sloping lot. Soellner gets a great deal of satisfaction from helping his clients accomplish their goals.
