How this award-winning Architect designs homes



Design + sketching tips, shortcuts + an in-depth exploration of the process residential architect – Russ Tyson – uses to design award-winning homes. Using a recently completed project as an example, we deconstruct the steps he takes with every new project from site analysis, to client engagement and budgeting and how he makes those all-important first marks on the blank page.

Russ is an incredibly talented designer, illustrator and principal at Whitten Architects in Portland, Maine. See more of Russ’ work here: https://www.whittenarchitects.com/
