New Construction in Gretna, VA
The homeowners came to Solex Architecture with ideas of what they wanted for a custom new construction home.

This residence consists of 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, in addition to the master suite. There is also a formal dining room and a breakfast area off of the kitchen. Other areas of note are the large family room, laundry room, entrance foyer, a child’s playroom, and a full unfinished walk-out basement large enough for a billiard’s enthusiast. The two car garage also includes an unfinished bonus room above. Construction of this 3,100 square foot project was completed in 2016.
Renovation in Axton, Virginia
The homeowners of this residence located near the Pittsylvania / Henry County line have a long family history with this property. The home once belonged to a relative who was responsible for building the original home as well as other structures on the property and has since been passed down. The house was in need of some updates to prepare it for when this home can once again become a primary residence. This project called for a complete interior renovation of the 2200 square foot main level which included replacing all of the wood paneling, converting a formal living room into a fourth bedroom, replacing all of the windows, adding a new powder room and laundry rooms and enclosing the former carport into a garage. An additional 584 square foot was added to create a new dining room adjacent to the kitchen as well as a new master bathroom. The existing shingle roof was replaced and a few accents of standing seam metal were added. The residence received a modern renovation while maintaining the character of the original home.
Renovation - Danville, VA
Solex Architecture helped the homeowners with their ideas to renovate their home in the Windsor Heights neighborhood in Danville, Virginia. With exception of the new porch off of the master suite and the framing out of a new music room in the basement, most of the revisions were cosmetic in nature. The entire interior of the home was renovated to create a luxurious oasis retreat after a long day. The interior finishes were updated throughout including new carpet in bedrooms, ceramic tile in the bathrooms and kitchen, lighting fixtures throughout, and new custom cabinetry in the kitchen and bathrooms. Since the homeowners’ primary residence was out of the area, Solex Architecture oversaw much of the construction and sent the homeowners bi-weekly reports to keep them apprised of the progress. Throughout the renovation, steps were taken to ensure the end result would showcase the home’s original charm.
Private Residence Master Plan
Located in Charlottesville, Virginia, Solex Architecture was engaged to develop an exterior master plan and perspective sketches. The concept includes a covered outdoor kitchen with bar seating, an enlarged deck and a slate patio. Natural features were designed to blend with seamlessly with more structured elements. Meandering stone paths direct you to a koi pond water feature, while a geometric outdoor fireplace created a well-defined gathering space.
Private Residence Enclosed Porch
Working with homeowners in Chase City, Virginia, it was determined that their goal was to ultimately convert an underused deck area into an interior space without taking away from the view. Dividing the master plan into two distinct phases was also of importance to the homeowner. During the first phase, a small sunroom was designed that would be accessible directly off of the master bedroom as well from the deck. The second phase would extend the sunroom the full length of the house creating a single space that would be accessible from multiple areas of the home.
