Who is CRAN (custom residential architects network)? If you practice residential architecture for individual homeowners, whether you work on bathroom or kitchen remodeling projects, additions to existing residences, or ground-up new homes, you are doing “custom” work and are part of CRAN. Inclusivity is of the greatest importance to the CRAN leadership and the future growth of CRAN. We are a “style-blind” group which recognizes and accepts all types of residential architecture design idioms and practice models for its members. RSVP for our inaugural NJ Meeting!Mompou Tapas Wine Bar and Lounge

 

Who is CRAN?

If you practice residential architecture for individual homeowners, whether you work on bathroom or kitchen remodeling projects, additions to existing residences, or ground-up new homes, you are doing “custom” work and are part of CRAN. Inclusivity is of the greatest importance to the CRAN leadership and the future growth of CRAN. We are a “style-blind” group which recognizes and accepts all types of residential architecture design idioms and practice models for its members.

What does CRAN do?

Support: It is our mission to support all architects whose practices focus on custom residential work. CRAN addresses the unique issues related to custom residential practice. As a forum, we provide for an exchange of ideas, resources and more that affect the residential practitioner.

Advocate: Through vehicles such as the “Style Blind” position paper and working closely with NARI and NAHB to develop new contract documents, CRAN is finding new avenues to advocate for the residential practitioner.

Educate: Through programs and events, a website at AIA.org, and its very own Wiki-site, CRAN strives to provide continuing educational opportunities for its members, the general public and our allied team members for all aspects of residential architecture practice.
