The Craftsman Style, or the American Arts and Crafts Movement, is an American domestic architectural,interior design, and decorative style popular from the last years of the 19th century through the early years of the 20th century. As a design movement, its popularity remained strong until the 1930s. The Craftsman Style is experiencing a current day revival. This revival has given Scorziell Development, Inc. the opportunity to flex its creative muscles in many of our recent homes.
The structure of a Scorziell house is essential not only to the immense feeling of security that such an overly-supported structure brings, but also accentuates the importance of the Arts & Crafts fundamentals in the Craftsman Style. The visual importance of the aesthetic nature of the joints, pegs, and complex wood-work symbolizes the structure of our houses. The structure of our house is externalized, or exploded, rather than hidden in decoration. Each element of the structure asserts itself. This extravagance of support takes its origins from the decorative bracketing of Japanese structures. We make every piece of the structure absolutely essential to the overall esthetics.
