Residential Architecture: Residential buildings have come to be seemingly identical after the standardization that followed the industrial revolution in the past century. However, some neighborhoods still enjoy the merits of beautifully customized residences and this where Residential Architects work. They deal with clients who would like to have their own customized houses designed. They take note of their spatial and functional requirements; then they start to design the plans, layouts, and elevations. They estimate the costs of materials and services, as well as the time needed to complete the construction and finishing.

Interior Design: Designing and styling the interior of an home requires artistic sense and technical knowledge. Interior Designers have a deep knowledge of materials, fabrics, colors, and basics of furniture design. Some architects prefer to work on the large scale and not to get involved with such details, while others prefer to do the interior design for their own projects.

Green Design Architect:The role of Green Design Architects has become essential. Green Design Architects are responsible for making eco-friendly and energy efficient architectural designs. They continuously work on innovating effective green design methods that leave a minimal impact on the environment. These architects should be knowledgeable in fields like aerodynamics, sun, and shading, as well as properties of materials.

Landscape Design Architecture: Landscape architecture is concerned with outdoor spaces like parks, gardens, neighborhoods, campuses, and public spaces. Landscape architects design these spaces to be efficient, engaging, and harmonious with the environment. They decide the locations for buildings, walkways, greenery, and other hardscape elements accordingly. Landscape architects also choose the materials for the walkways and the types of trees and shrubs for the green areas, and so they need to have a background in the science of urban horticulture. They should be aware of the suitable materials and plants for different climates and uses.

Urban Design Architecture: Urban Design is a broad subject that employs other specializations like building architecture, landscape design, and green design. It deals with the scales of neighborhoods, districts, and cities. Urban designers are in charge of grouping buildings, designing nodes, paths, and street networks. So, they give the city its shape and sense of order. They can design cities from scratch or develop existing ones. Urban designers additionally face a wider range of issues that have to do with the economy, politics, and culture. They, also, have to be in touch with the communities they serve who are their actual clients.

"We Loved the addition that AACO Home designed for us... We already are thinking about our basement."
Chris Zaros - Annapolis MD 

"2 WEEKS! We called them and had someone out the same day to look at our kitchen extension/addition.   Jeff was there within 3 hours AND HAD A CONCEPT DONE by the time I woke up the next morning, we were super impressed!  The price was not the lowest out of the 4 companies we spoke too but wasnt the highest either and knew we wanted to work with AACO Home.  They scheduled later that week and had their 4 man crew out there the following monday and it WAS COMPLETE IN 2 WEEKS!"
Jennifer Myers - Arnold MD 

"We cringed at making our project/vision become a reality because we live on the water and if you know Anne Arundel County you know doing anything while living in the "Critical Area Zone" truly makes it hard to get anything done, but the AACO team did it.  Jeff & Talon made our vision become a reality, they even CLEANED MY HOUSE!"
