Our Process

“Wish List” – Every project starts with an initial consultation to discuss your “wish list”. This list usually includes your ideas, concerns, schedule and budget.

Initial Site Visit – Together, the client and the architect determine how the “wish list” fits onto the site. Walking the site helps establish the best placement, how to achieve the best views, and how the sun and shadows affect the design.

Bubble Diagram – The bubble diagram is based on the “wish list”. We prepare some rough design sketches that ban be used for further discussions that help the client to clarify what is most important on their “wish list”.

Site and Floor Plan Development – This phase reviews the initial design development, discuss the pro’s and con’s, and answers questions that may arise. The design will undergo a series of revisions until the client is satisfied with it.

Elevation Development – Initial sketches of the exterior design.

Interior Development – Initial study of the space relationship of the interior spaces.

Exterior Rendering – The final representation of the exterior design; including color and materials.

Detailed Construction Documents – These documents are the basis for the clients relationship with the contractor.  They are detailed and high quality, providing all of the information needed for building permitting and  construction.

David Langley

Owner, Lead Architect, Licensed in Colorado

David has cultivated 36 years of experience in the humble pursuit of inspired architecture. Upon graduating from Ball State University College of Architecture and Planning in 1976, David moved to Colorado and began David A. Langley Architects in 1981. I offer clients the art and inspiration of hand-drawn sketches and renderings at the concept, then develop the design in AutoCAD and computer aided modeling and visualization. That process results in a buildable design respectful of the budget but with features completely unique to the project.

I currently employ one Architect, associate with two more Architects, one Designer and an Office Manager that utilize AutoCAD for all production of Design Documents and Construction. The combination of innate design created by hand and precision of AutoCAD assist in providing programming decisions, appropriate schematics, and clear construction documents ready to be utilized in accurately constructing the dream by designing innovative architecture, transforming visions into reality.

Testimonials

Niel B

When our youngest son graduated from college, my wife, Barbara, and I decided to downsize from our home in Colorado Springs and move to Woodland Park. Because we were looking for a smaller but newer home we settled for a spec home that was under construction. Although we were able to select some of the finishes we did not have as much input as we would have liked. Over the next five years we made numerous upgrades in the home but also continued to look at other properties in the area. We made several offers to purchase others homes but were unsuccessful. During this time we became familiar with homes and buildings David Langley had designed. We subsequently began looking at lots and considered building a new home. We purchased a half acre lot with an unobscured view of Pikes Peak.

At this juncture we decided to consult with David. We had no experience in designing or constructing a home. David asked what we were looking for in terms of the design. Although we thought we liked adobe style architecture, we realized it was not practical living at 8500 feet above sea level in the Colorado mountains. Yet we wanted to retain some of the character and features of a southwestern design which my wife later described as “Santa Fe Mountain”.

David was instrumental in helping us reach our goal. He listened to our ideas and began to bring them to life in his drawings. We met with David on several occasions to review the concept drawings. Sometimes it took a couple of attempts by us to communicate what we wanted but David came up with the home the we wanted. It was somewhat more difficult because we did not want a large home but wanted the convenience and modern features sometimes reserved for larger custom homes.

In addition to listening to our ideas for the design, David undertook fitting the design on the lot.  He had the lot surveyed and determined the optimum view point and sight lines for the house. Likewise, we asked David for recommendations of builders. We interviewed the builders he recommended, all of whom were very competent, and selected the one with whom we were most comfortable. Our builder and David then worked closely to bring the design to fruition.

We have been very pleased with our home and its design. It has the feel of a mountain lodge or bed and breakfast but with some interior southwest features. After watching a fox playing in our yard, my wife named our house “Dancing Fox Lodge” and we were proud to display our home in the local Christmastime charitable benefit known as the Holiday Home Tour. We continue to comment to each other that it is hard to believe we live in the home that we do because it truly is what we wanted. David deserves a great deal of credit for the enjoyment we experience daily.

We wanted to take the time to let others know of our process with Langley Architects. We were recommended to Langley Architects by Steve Copp with Above Tree line construction. We started the process with David and we were extremely pleased with the start of the process as David listened to us and wanted our input from the start. We were very involved in the process and David listened and implemented our taste with his design throughout. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the process or the cost. We achieved a unique one of a kind Colorado Cabin with our taste and the touches of a professional that made it all come together.
