American Home Designs

This page contains a selection of major American home designs, with links to individual project pages. We’ve selected what we feel are the key American Houses, but building additions are always welcome.

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of American Homes. We aim to include projects that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.

We cover completed US residential buildings, new property designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across the USA. The focus is on contemporary US properties but information on traditional houses is also welcome.

We have 5 pages of American Residential Architecture selections with links to many individual project pages.

Carrillo Residence, Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles, California

Carrillo Residence

Pacific Palisades House
This residence occupies a long narrow site on the rim of Santa Monica Canyon with distant views of the Pacific Ocean. Designed for a young couple with two children, the house addresses the formal and informal needs of the family while taking advantage of the Southern California climate and views. The orientation of the house reinforces the geometry of the site. A series of stone masses define the ground floor program of the home while a pristine floating white box houses the bedroom wings and slides over and past the stone to gesture towards the canyon and the views.

Bigger is Better House, Los Angeles, California

Bigger is Better House
This is a 10,000 sqft residence. The “Bigger is Better House” does not merely scale a typical American house resulting in an inflation of space but rethinks its programmatic composition and infuses it with informal programs. The home has the girth of a sumo wrestler and the ecological footprint of a geisha – proving that bigger is also better in regards to sustainability.
