A traditional home of the 21st century builds upon many precedents from American residential architecture to create a look that is simultaneously classic and contemporary. The residential work of Archer & Buchanan seeks to respect a long history of American architecture, interpreting the design of new homes based on the changing lifestyles and construction technologies of today. This presentation, by founding partner Peter C. Archer, AIA, will highlight the process of designing and building a residence in the Philadelphia area using these principles and the materials, forms, and details inspired by the local traditions of the region. Presented as part of DesignPhiladelphia.
