Principal Archival Designer, David Loftus used classical styling principles and features in every home plan he created. He quickly garnered a reputation in the home plan design industry as the designer with the best innate sense for classical architecture's proportional harmonies. The growing luxury home building community agreed that the proportions of a Loftus' designed home led to a feeling well-being and serenity evident on crossing the threshold. World-renowned, century-old home planner Garlinghouse Company named David Loftus Best New Designer in 1998, and the Archival Designs reputation for outstanding home plans and luxury home plans still stands today.
The Archival Designs guiding principle is designing classical residences emphasizing symmetry through proportional harmony. Through intensive study of history's great classic homes, David realized that the principles of proportion were critical to outstanding home designs and luxury home plans that stressed uplifting elegance as well as comfort and relaxation. He strongly believed house design proportions should adhere to the principles in Leonardo da Vinci's study of human proportions. Thus, a rectangular room's length should be one and a half times its width, and its ceiling height dimensionally proportional.
Proportional Harmony Works Is An Essential Element of Every Home Plan We Create . . . No Matter its Size. Elegance, spaciousness, functionality and exquisite proportion in luxury home plans is not exclusive to only the largest and most opulent homes. Archival Designs uses the same classical styling principles in all of its house plans, from 1400 square feet up to its 22,000 square foot luxury home plans and castles.
