The house as a home ....good concept, but its much more complicated, as the process can be - encompassing issues of architecture, psychology, program, and memory, and in effect calling into question everything that a notion of a house as a home can be.

Designing a house for one's parents might be way for some architects to begin their careers or showcase experimental ideas. Your study should include understanding more about the designers' ideas on form, space, style, and place, the client-architect relationship, and expression to ideas about home, family, and childhood memories.

You can also research these architects: Natalye Appel, Peter Bohlin, Walter Chatham, Charles Gwathmey, Steven Izenour, Donna Kacmar, Robert Kahn, Mark and Jean Larson, Joanna Lombard and Denis Hector, Robert Luchetti, Suzanne Martinson, Richard Meier, Charles Menefee, Mark Simon, Laurinda Spear and Bernardo Fort-Brescia, Paul Westlake, Mark Anderson, and Peter Anderson. They have all desiged homes for Mom or family members.
