“For us design can’t have a name because it’s really the people who live in it that bring the house to life,” said Michael Gardner, the owner studio g ARCHITECTURE after the Architect & Builder Workshop at Ascaya luxury homesites.
After spending many years in commercial architectural development transitioning back to designing custom homesites replenished Michael Gardner’s love for the aesthetic craft.
“When you are building commercial architecture people come and go, it’s very transient. It’s not a reflection of who the people are and that is what a home is, it’s a reflection of them.”
The process of creating a reflection and providing an exciting and fulfilling accomplishment is what makes architectural house planning a passion for Michael Gardner.
Redefining Desert Contemporary
When it comes to exclusive architecture Gardner refrains from labeling his designs.
“It’s like trying to confine something in a box, “said Gardner.
For Gardner, Desert Contemporary goes back to being regionally responsive with architectural design.
In an area such as Ascaya Nevada luxury homesites, designing around such things like the desert sun, the performance of the home in the winter and the summer is the how the curator explained the essence of desert architecture, a sustainable approach to the climate conditions.
While the desert concept of design is about sustainability the contemporary is in the aesthetics. It is the up to date luxury design concepts such as cleaner lines, larger overhang and minimalist floor plans.
“In our homes we try to have a lot more meaning to it than to just have a label.”
Designing a custom home at Ascaya is about creating an experience through the exciting process of building dream homes. For Michael Gardner this process of is an awarding experience for everyone.
For studio g ARCHITECTURE the pleasure in building custom homes is in the satisfaction that stems from their clients fulfillment.
“The best part is at the end when they have that sense of accomplishment that they have once the house is done.”
