This architectural style often features a courtyard with water features to extend the living space outdoors.

Southwest house plans are conducive to arid and semi-arid climates where homeowners look to stay cool and comfortable year-round, especially during the heat of the day. This style of home typically features all of the living quarters on one level with an airy great room located at the front of the house and the remaining rooms in wings off to each side.

Outdoor living space is a central element of this design with the floor plan wrapping around a private courtyard for relaxing and entertaining. Southwest house plans also typically feature numerous entrances leading to additional outdoor spaces around the home such as landscaped gardens and swimming pools. Southwest style homes are perfect for entertaining year-round with their large, airy rooms and melding of indoor and outdoor living spaces in a casual, welcoming atmosphere.
