FRENCH PROVINCIAL HOME
French Provincial homes have a casually elegant vibe associated with them. The symmetrically balanced proportions, steep roofs and porches with substantial balustrades make them unique. These designs are popular today because they are chic and minimal yet classic. From high pitched roofs and massive doors to clinker brick chimneys, windows are often plain and yet the design is all about simplicity & understatement. We have expertise in designing French provincial homes. We have developed several homes around Melbourne. Take a look at our portfolio to get better insights.View French Provincial Homes Projects >
