Design Concepts

These conceptual designs are for affordable, sustainable, net zero, passive solar, geothermal, and disaster resistant buildings of all types.

  • Winery Design: Macdonald Architecture designs wineries including bottling lines, cask storage, fermenting, restaurants and tasting rooms.

  • Community Design: Community design includes educational, religious, medical, social housing & emergency reconstruction design, sustainable landscape design and town planning.

  • Affordable Social Housing: We specialize in affordable home design for individual Do-it-Yourself, DIY owners, as well as for social housing programs, and emergency reconstruction projects.

  • Multi Family: Fire resistant galvanized steel and Ferrocement structures are ideal for multi-family housing because they are non-combustible and super strong. We design using all materials. Our plans conform to Housing and Urban Development HUD standards as well as to international building codes.

  • Fortified Survival Home: You can build your own do it yourself DIY, affordable and disaster resistant fortified home, IBHS fortified survival home, safe room, and EMP resistant emergency shelter.

  • Commercial & Hospitality: Money saving sustainable design is essential to commercial and hospitality projects because profitability depends on low operating costs. These designs exhibit attractive modern style, sometimes with historical overtones suitable for tourist industry projects. Disaster resistant structures save lives and property.
