NEW HOME DESIGNS BY AFFINITI ARCHITECTS
RANK #1 IN J.D. POWER SURVEY

BOCA RATON, Fla. -- A recent customer satisfaction survey by J.D. Power and Associates ranked Minto Communities number one in new home design in the Palm Beach County area. Boca Raton-based Affiniti Architects created the winning designs for Minto to better meet the needs of today’s changing real estate market. The designs incorporate beloved, circa-1920s-style architecture with floor plans that fit today’s lifestyles.

To make Minto’s products stand out in a slowed real estate market, Affiniti increased the quality of the homes beyond the usual standards for production models. Minto accepted and embraced the concept that investing more in the quality of each home will bring a desirable return. “Our goal was to help Minto achieve a better bottom line through increased customer satisfaction,” says Benjamin Schreier, AIA, a partner in Affiniti. “Quality is always a winning component.”

AFFINITI ARCHITECTS TO DESIGN UPSIDE-DOWN HOME

Ben Schreier of Affiniti Architects commissioned By Mark Timothy, Inc.


Ben Schreier is AIA with Affiniti Architects.

24,000-square-foot multi-generational home among architect’s commissions

BOCA RATON, Fla. — A 24,000-square-foot, country-style home designed to house three generations is among the new commissions recently accepted by Benjamin Schreier, AIA. Schreier is a partner in Affiniti Architects, a full-service architectural firm headquartered n Boca Raton.

The home will have separate wings that allow an extended family to live together during holidays and vacations and still have privacy. Among the features: a children’s study area that evokes the ambience of a 1920s railroad clerk’s office, and a decorative tin ceiling in the family room. The dramatic foyer has a sweeping staircase defined by a unique iron railing with metal dowels attached to the sides of the steps.

Affiniti Architects has offices in Boca Raton, Tampa, and the Bahamas. The firm has earned more than 200 national and regional design awards for residential architecture, including numerous “Best of Show” awards from the South Florida Builder’s Association.

Affiniti Architects was founded on the principal of producing projects through team organization and turnkey construction. Annual construction volume is approximately $500 million.

Affiniti Architects is located at 3835 NW Boca Raton Boulevard, Suite 100C in Boca Raton, Fla. For more information, call 561-750-0445 or visit www.affinitiarchitects.com.


BOCA RATON, Fla.- Ben Schreier, AIA, recently accepted a commission to design a 10,000-square-foot, oceanfront spec home in Delray Beach for luxury builder Mark Timothy, Inc. Schreier is a partner in Affiniti Architects, a full-service architectural firm headquartered in Boca Raton.

The Georgian design is part of a trend Schreier sees toward northern-style architecture in South Florida. “The home will be elegant and understated, with Georgian moldings, bandings and proportions, but with an exterior of Florida stucco instead of traditional brick,” he said. “These more northern-style designs are becoming alternatives to Mediterranean and island-style architecture.”

The home will have three loggias overlooking the ocean featuring a summer kitchen, a dining area, comfortable seating and a fireplace. The two garages will be air-conditioned. “Air-conditioned garages are something that many discerning home buyers are asking for today,” Schreier said. “They expect more comfort, more luxurious finishes, and higher quality in every area.”

Mark Timothy, Inc. has been building homes priced between $15 million and $40 million for 18 years. Just a few months ago, the firm offered a spec home priced at $20 million for sale and almost immediately had four offers on it, including one that was $1 million higher than his asking price.

The Delray Beach home that Schreier is designing will be of a similar genre, and one of three oceanfront spec homes in Palm Beach County that Mark Timothy, Inc. will offer over the next 18 months. “I’m building them because I’m confident that the buyers will be there,” he said.

Affiniti Architects is located at 6100 Broken Sound Parkway NW, Suite 8 in Boca Raton. For more information, call 561-750-0445 or visit www.AffinitiArchitects.com.
