Gelotte Hommas Design Vision

Some of the design principles that we practice here at Gelotte Hommas hinge under the use of Beauty and Form, Use of Light, Placement, and Local Materials.

Here at Gelotte Hommas Architecture, we have developed a national reputation for our creative and well-thought out residential architecture as well as our commercial design. Our architecture firm was established in 1983 by Curtis Gelotte, Scott Hommas and Eric Drivdahl. As a medium-sized architecture firm, we are not only able to oversee a number assignments of all sizes, but we are also able to ensure the quality of design and customer service due to the fact that at least two of our principals will oversee each project. The following are a few of our design principals that we have put into place and that help to define our Gelotte Hommas vision:

  • Beauty and Form – Although we focus on function, we strive to enhance the function of a design in order to compose a unique and artistic beauty by paying careful attention to proportion, scale and alignment.
  • Light – The way a place is lit, both by indoor lighting and by natural light, helps create the atmosphere of the space. We ensure that the ligh
  • Place – The relationship between the architecture and its surroundings is often overlooked. We keep the site of the place in mind when designing both the interior and exterior.
  • Materials – We understand that the materials that are used help to express beauty, form, rhythm and light, which means we strive to use rich materials that are artistically joined as well as honestly expressed.

As you can see, we focus on every element of architectural design, from the location to the materials to the rhythm.
