Smooth Transition

Claude C. Lapp Architects, LLC, punctuates classic design with modern accents in a traditional abode

Project of the year
Claude C. Lapp Architects, LLC

The aim of this project was to create a forever home for a young family. Taking advantage of a large, private lot, Claude C. Lapp Architects designed the residence with a garage wing set at an angle to emphasize the front façade. A formal layout and an informal vibe make the interiors great for entertaining yet cozy and welcoming.

Built by M&M Builders and Contractors, LLC, the home includes such details as a built-in wine display in the dining room and a barrel-vaulted ceiling in the foyer. Traditional design elements and modern features impart transitional flair. “The owners don’t have to sacrifice comfort for style,” says principal Claude C. Lapp. “The finishes will last for years without losing their appeal.”

Claude C. Lapp Architects, LLC, has been in business since 1992 and has seven employees on staff. The firm completes 50 to 75 projects a year starting at about $300,000.
