Our Approach

While the design+build process can last up to many weeks or months, we begin with establishing a working partnership with each client. Very quickly that partnership becomes a relationship, which we take very seriously. Our team takes the time to listen to the needs and desires of each client. This enables us to fully understand their vision and ultimate objectives.

We welcome our client’s questions, curiosities, sharing of ideas, and the desire for deeper conversations about their goals and expectations for their project. Our client’s interest and collaboration throughout the process, and their understanding of the theories behind the development of the project earns mutual respect and a higher level of trust and comfort for both parties. As a result, clients become increasingly knowledgeable, and obtain a level of ‘ownership’ in the vision for their project.

Currently our expanding service area includes Raleigh, Wake ForestCary, Apex, Holly SpringsWillow Spring, Garner, Clayton and many other communities surrounding Raleigh.

We look forward to successfully delivering a rewarding design+build experience for your next project.

Our Philosophy

Paragon understands that in order to preserve the fabric of our built environment, it begins with good design. Good design is found in every style, size, and period of residential architecture, which creates excitement, interest and character. We attempt to avoid designing “generic” and “mainstream” volume-built boxes for living. The path to achieve good design involves a process of open dialogue, exploration, research, experimentation, as well as an array of trials and ‘what if’’ scenario’s.

A successful design comes from an integration of all elements, which individually contribute to the character of the project. Examples include sighting the home correctly, functionality of plan layouts based on programmatic surveys, proper proportion of space and volume, the quality of light and movement, the composition of form, material and technologies, the comfort provided by various systems, and the juxtaposition of indoor and outdoor spaces… just to name a few.

Where feasible, Paragon strives to include as many sustainable principles and products as possible, attempting to preserve our natural resources, manage energy efficiency, and incorporating other eco-friendly objectives. Local building materials, regional climate, and the surrounding context are fundamental to each project.
