Architecture reflects the character and culture of the people who build it. Through the 18th century, America’s character was in the process of being formed.It wasn’t until the mid-19th century when domestic architecture would come into maturation and add something to our homes that was, at its core, American: the front porch.
Great design is always at the intersection of form and function. When it comes to homebuilding, this means we design your homes to be as useful for your family as they are pleasing to the eye. The mudroom is perhaps the best example of design that brings utility to the family while contributing to the overall elegance and beauty of the home.
Despite being one of our most popular floorplans, the Asheville is a surprisingly versatile floorplan. After living in Stapleton for a while, Kristin and Casey decided they needed more space for their growing family. Take a look at how they made the Asheville floorplan unique to them!
Customer loyalty and the word-of-mouth effect are crucial factors in Parkwood's 20+ years of success. Currently, about 3 out of 4 Parkwood homebuyers either come to us because of a direct referral of a friend or family member, or are moving up to a Parkwood from within the community in which we're building. So we work very hard to build and maintain our reputation.

Dustin and Monica were among the first to see the promise of Stapleton when they bought a home in an early Stapleton neighborhood in 2004. After living in that house for 10 years, they decided it was time for an upgrade. They considered an extensive remodel of their original home, but ultimately decided to take a chance and buy a new home in Stapleton’s first neighborhood north of I-70, Conservatory Green. While Dustin and Monica loved the new neighborhood, they were kind of disappointed with their second home in Stapleton.
Since our earliest homes, Daniel Morales has been the creative mind behind Parkwood’s iconic neo-traditional style. From large commercial projects to residential homes, his goal has always been to design buildings with harmony. Daniel's long career in architecture started with the Kentlands community working under Andres Duany and Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, where he met developer Joseph Alfandre and his executive VP, Steve Wilcox, who would go on to found Parkwood. I had the opportunity to talk to Daniel about everything from his experience working on the Kentlands community to current trends in architecture and what makes a building beautiful.
