5 Ways an Architect Can Help With Your Home Design:
An architect will visit your site and listen to your ideas and wishes for your project. With good communication, an architect will help bring your dream home into reality.
Architects have an understanding of sound construction, design layout, natural lighting, and other natural conditions that will impact the design of your home – both inside and outside.
An architect’s knowledge and expertise in understanding and maintaining building codes required during construction is another area where they will greatly assist the homeowner.
Hiring a professional architect means you are getting an expert in their field which will save you money in the long run to help avoid unexpected costs in the area of design.
An architect is one part of a team of experts that you will choose for your home design and construction. Making a good decision on hiring an architect can help you remain in budget while being able to see your dream home being built.
Let our architects transform your vision and wish list into a design concept that can become reality!

Here is a little information regarding our company name and how it is pronounced - just in case you were curious.

Entasis Inc was contracted in early spring of 2015 to make plans for a new addition to my home. They helped design and had some great suggestions. Turn around on the plans was great, they gave dates as to what to expect and they were prompt as to delivering final plans. Everything was to code as they did the research making things move along smoothly. I would definitely with out a doubt not hesitate to recommend or use these professionals again.
Review from client - June 2015
Entasis developed a complete custom home plan for me and the results were excellent. Made a site visit to evaluate the lot and worked patiently with us to accommodate our wishes and requirements. Offered numerous helpful suggestions as we worked at solving problems, and overall exceeded our expectations.

FUNCTION means taking into account the needs and desires of a client so that the final design works properly. We consider the intended use of a space, movement of people through it, furniture placement and lighting. When function has been correctly established, an architect’s attention turns to form, and then the shape of a project can develop. Just as a potter needing to make a vessel to hold soup sculpts a bowl and not a dish, architects size and position spaces to fit the needs and requirements of a client. Interaction with the client during the design of a project is vital. That communication makes design of a particular space a very personal and special process to them and to us.
FORM of a structure is determined by the function of that space. When considering a client’s ideas, we take into account the setting, structural requirements, the budget, and local codes in order to have the best possible outcome.
AESTHETICS are the special finishing touches that an architect builds into a design that make that pleasing difference to the eye. Whether specifying a particular exterior finish or the addition of pilasters to scale down a large building façade or just adding the correct size of window in the right location, we have the understanding of design concepts that allows us to make your final building functional and beautiful at the same time. After a design has been finalized, an architect’s role continues as one who will work with the client to insure that the intent of the design is met.
Each year building codes are updated. Architects are trained to interpret and apply them to a project through notes on design documents or during site visits saving the client time and the cost of rework. Whether a project is commercial or dwelling oriented, an architect is the owner’s best asset for having a beautiful space to work or live in.
