This custom home was designed with a semi-detached carriage house for three cars and a guest suite on the first floor, with a home office on the second. An expansive wrap-around porch provides the connection between the main house and the carriage house.
Susan Rochelle is a Residential Architect in New Jersey and other states. She is the designer of fine new single family and vacation homes throughout the area. To design the best home possible for her clients, Susan first gets to know the family (Are there children living in the home? How many? What is a typical morning in the household?). She also learns about the family lifestyle, (Is high-end luxury the goal or is understated elegance more important?) Susan also takes the surrounding community into account (What is the context of the neighborhood? What are the zoning laws?). With this information at hand, Susan works with the client to design a home that is uniquely theirs.
