Custom Residential Home Design
Custom home design, from contemporary to mountain living.
The custom home design team at Kelly & Stone Architects is committed to creating inspired and innovative residential architecture design solutions that meet client specified wants and needs. Residential Architecture is exciting to the KSA team. There is no design challenge we will not embrace. Rather, we see those design challenges as opportunities for innovation and creativity. The joy of residential design stems from the personal relationships that form between the architect and the client. This unique relationship allows the design team to meet client specific desires. Kelly & Stone Architects has an extensive and diverse residential portfolio, from rustic western architecture to mountain modern designs. We use the opportunity to work with varied landscapes and personal styles as a way to explore many avenues of custom home design.

LEED Accredited, Green Building, and Sustainable Design
Sustainable, green design principles are a part of every project.
Our goal in every project is to construct buildings that are less wasteful and more environmentally sound. Our staff architects are LEED accredited professionals who support national and regional green building initiatives in order to achieve energy efficient and eco-friendly buildings.
Sustainable design requires energy efficiency, resource conservation, and good indoor air quality. Kelly & Stone Architects uses an initial site analysis to understand the environmental implications of the location, so that the orientation and geometry of the building can take advantage of solar energy while protecting itself from undesirable sun, wind, and weather.
KSA works closely with energy consultants and contractors so that details critical to the building envelope are designed correctly, ensuring the building will be efficient in its use of energy and resources. The design of the mechanical system and the selection of finishes and materials are important considerations for providing healthy indoor air quality. The ultimate goal is to achieve a green home that has less impact on the environment and is healthy for the occupants. As a Gold Certified Member of the Steamboat Springs Chamber Sustainable Business Council, KSA supports local sustainability practices, including the environmental impact of our own business operations. KSA is a proponent of the adoption of a local green building code and endorses using established programs like Energy Star and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED). As a member of the United States Green Building Council, KSA understands the global impact the building industry has on the environment and hopes to instill in its clients a better understanding of energy- and resource-efficient design.
