Plans Are Just the Beginning
In today’s market, developing the right architectural plans is only half the challenge. We take pride in contributing to every step of the process, creating residential home designs that are consistent with both builders’ and buyers’ expectations. Whether it’s design, drafting, or planning, our approach produces a competitive advantage for builders to create award-winning homes that buyers get excited about.
Just wanted to thank you for another great job! I’ve been building homes in Austin since 1992, and it’s always a pleasure to work from your plans. Your team’s attention to detail and quality make it so much easier on me and my contractors. I am actually able to charge my clients less, because I know I’m not going to have to deal with mistakes and missing dimensions. I’m proud to refer you clients, because you always do what you say you’ll do…on time, without up charges, or any bad surprises. I look forward to building many more of your designs!”

We like to think of ourselves as business partners that happen to provide architectural services. That’s why we work closely with each of our clients to create residential home designs that make a statement and stand apart from the competition. Our background is uniquely production-builder-oriented focusing on the needs of single family residential builders. As problem solvers, we help you address the needs of changing buyer demographics with designs that will meet their needs today and tomorrow. Thinking outside of the box – literally – to design holistically for the site, buyer, builder, price point, and region.
Multi-family residence design is always exciting for us. The size and scope of each project is bigger, which means the stakes are always higher. Our experience in value engineering enables our clients to maximize profits and marketing opportunities on a grand scale. Duplexes, condos, townhomes, retirement communities, and apartment complexes – whatever the scope, our determination to understand and support every step of the process ultimately provides the best possible solutions.
From introductory to luxury, our unique residential home designs appeal to a broad market and are widely known as a subcontractors’ best friend. We understand the importance of efficiency when it comes to building, so we’re meticulous about using standard lengths and avoiding waste at all costs.
Subcontractors recognize the efficient clarity of our construction documents. So many of our referrals come from engineers and framers who have worked from our sets.
Residential planning is essential in shaping the future for families and communities. For more than 30 years, Kipp Flores has not only created thousands of beautifully functional residential designs, we’ve also been students of the housing industry. We’ve watched trends come and go. We’ve seen prices and demand fluctuate all over the map. What have we learned? Experience is key and fastidious planning is everything.
When you’ve been designing homes as long as we have, you inevitably end up with a large inventory of residential designs. Good ones. But rather than letting them collect dust, we make our existing residential plans available to our clients to provide economical solutions that share all of the same passions and skills that go into every one of our projects.
At Kipp Flores Architects, we are excited to help you achieve LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification for you next project. The strategies of LEED design can offer substantial energy, material, and environmental benefits over buildings simply built to code. LEED certified buildings can offer your clients more durable structures with less maintenance along with lower utility costs. Often LEED certified projects enjoy greater marketability as well as higher appraised property values. If you are interested in LEED certification, contact Kipp Flores Architects to begin the process.
Custom Home Design
When it comes to custom home design, details are everything. We spend a great deal of time with each client to get a crystal clear understanding of the vision and personality that will bring each of our custom home designs to life. It’s a matter of blending our extensive design experience with the unique preferences of each residential home builder. This creates beautiful, custom homes that are as individual and personal as their owners.
