Consideration of the environment and understanding how the goals of a project relate to its surrounding; solar orientation, prevailing winds, views and other elements, renders the most successful design for your home.
Our goal at Jeannette Architects is to design homes that maximize functionality for you and your family while aesthetically fitting your style and connecting with the neighboring environment.
Considering passive and active solar design, cutting edge heating / cooling & electrical technologies, specification of recycled and recyclable green products and designing with the intent to maximize light and ventilation into every possible space are some of the basic design considerations for which we strive.
We enjoy the design challenges of historic Craftsman and Spanish styles; architecture found in the well established southern California beach communities around our studio. As you may have seen in our portfolio section, we are well versed in many design styles including Mid-Century Modern, Beach Cottage, Spanish, Craftsman, Victorian, Cape Cod, Mediterranean, Tuscan and today's more Hi-Tech modern style homes of concrete, glass and steel. Our vast experience with the design constraints of small lots as well as an understanding of how to delicately place homes on larger lots makes us an excellent candidate for your architectural needs.
Jeff Jeannette is the Architect Adviser to The Reuse People; a non-profit organization whose goal is to reduce the solid waste in our landfills by deconstructing homes and donating the materials to Habitat for Humanity and other organizations for reuse. You feel good about your contribution to the environment and may receive a tax deduction for the donation. Considering Remodels, there are many pieces of your home you may wish to consider donating while with new homes, we can direct nearly every part of your home to reuse rather than the dumpster.
