Timothy R. Winters Architect was founded in 1988 to fill a niche that I found lacking in Louisville. It seemed that very few architects were choosing to be involved in residential architecture, even fewer that wanted to create timeless, classic designs. Louisville, as was true of many cities, had seen the creation of many fine homes in earlier periods. There clearly was a need for an architect that desired to establish a practice similar to the classic firms of the early 1900's.
Louisville has a large stock of finely crafted homes, many of which need renovations or additions. Many of these homes have received poor attention with their renovations. I have attempted to design our projects so that the viewer could not tell that we had been involved. We generally have only one chance to leave the appropriate mark on the home. I don't take lightly the responsibility that is given me on each commission.
Many of our projects each year are new homes. Each home owner brings a new challenge with each project. Never do we create the same design twice. Whether the home is a fine English Georgian or a simple white clapboard farmhouse, the home has to fill the dreams of each individual client. A number of fine new homes are created each year with the desire of leaving a long lasting tribute to the talents of the homeowner, architect and contractor.
The firm is headed by Tim Winters, who designs all of the projects. Project managers Chris Winters and Chip North oversee the production of documents. From the conceptual designs, we create the myriad construction details required to build approximately 100-150 projects each year. We are indebted to a number of very fine contractors that produce our projects; a fine design is nothing without the talented hands of many fine craftsmen. I hope that we can bring the same joy and craftmanship to your home.
