Custom Home Design

Design Architects Long Beach, CA

The October 5 team knows how to execute the vision of your new home, from the early design phase to the final material orders. The process of home design traditionally involves initial discussions with the design build team, collecting information and existing plans (“as builts”), followed by schematic/conceptual design, design documents, and finally construction documents. Here at October 5, you will be part of each of these steps, thereby ensuring the smooth execution of your vision.

One of October 5's main goals is the early integration of finish materials into the design documents. Selection of finish materials may persuade us to move, just slightly, a wall, a window or a door. We call this, “letting the house breathe.” The design team will produce elevations for every wall of every room. For example, there will be no confusion on finish tile patterns or layout. We have great design teams who have a passion for the art of residential design while at the same time understanding the intricacies of the construction process.

October 5 offers a variety of residential design services throughout Southern California, from custom family homes, pools and landscapes to remote vacation homes.
