Spanish/Mediterranean/Stucco Architectural Style

Influences from Spain, Italy and other Mediterranean countries combine with North American ideas to create a Spanish/Mediterranean style of home. These range from older homes with small windows and large doors topped by arch windows, to new-style Mediterranean homes that have larger windows, use banks of windows and employ much larger arch windows. Grid patterns create an illusion of multiple panes. Use careful attention to design a grid pattern that complements the rest of the home. French swinging or French-style sliding doors are best for patios.
