American Residences Designs

This page contains a selection of major American residential building designs, with links to individual project pages. We’ve selected what we feel are the key American Houses, but building additions are always welcome.

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of American Residences. We aim to include projects that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.

We cover completed US residential buildings, new property designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across the USA. The focus is on contemporary US properties but information on traditional houses is also welcome.

We have 5 pages of American Residential Architecture selections with links to many individual project pages.
