Residential design is more than creating an attractive home. It requires in-depth knowledge of every home-building detail, from soils to fine interior finishes. It also takes a special understanding of how a new home functions for each family’s lifestyle and day-to-day needs.

For DSDA, residential home design means that we listen and relate to each client, paying special attention to the project's bottom line and providing green and cost-effective construction.

Our Portfolio pages tell the story best.

With 31 years of experience in designing custom homes, we understand the importance of combining out-of-the-box creativity with attention to detail. DSDA knows the ins and outs of building in Colorado, from the Denver bulk plane restrictions to Steamboat Springs snow loads.

Whether you are a family building a home for the first time or an experienced builder, DSDA believes the process of creating a home should be enjoyable. At DSDA, you are assured of direct, personalized attention at every phase of your build. As a small design firm, you have direct access to all the key players. We use state-of-the-art CADD technology to assist in the technical aspects of the design process.
