Denver, CO, February 14, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Many prospective homebuyers walk into a Toll Brothers model home and immediately know it’s the design for them - they feel at home. But, how did this floorplan originate?
Don Davis, AIA, senior architectural project manager for Toll Brothers in the Southwest Region, stresses that it’s a collaborative process.
“We are continually watching market trends, monitoring input from our sales people and construction staff as well as getting ideas from our prospective buyers and past homeowners,” Davis says. “Some of the most popular trends right now are expansive glass doors that connect the inside of the home to the outdoors, and flex spaces that can have multiple uses throughout the life of a home.
“We start with the basics of what we want in the floorplan for a specific community and then schedule a design charrette--an intensive, multi-day meeting involving architects, interior decorators, sales people and construction staff to talk about details,” he explains.
“Once we have a floorplan and start building, the design process doesn’t end,” Davis explains. “The first time we build a new floorplan, we monitor the construction process carefully to see if we can improve the design. There is nothing better than walking the home at framing to get a sense of how it feels. Does the room have enough light, is the ceiling high enough, or is it too high? We look at how the home will live and function, and then we adjust to make it better for our customers.”
“For example, we recently revamped an existing floorplan at Anthem Ranch in Broomfield,” explains Mark Bailey, Colorado Division President. “The floorplan lived fine and was fairly popular, but we identified ways to make it live better by opening the living space, and modifying the laundry room, owner’s entry and a few closets. The end result is a more open and flexible design in roughly the same square footage.”
A big plus for homebuyers who purchase from Toll Brothers is that in addition to outstanding floorplans, the company offers hundreds of options that can be added to personalize your dream home. Toll Brothers offers luxury, single-family homes in seven spectacular communities along Colorado’s Front Range, from Fort Collins to Parker.
