Ludwig Design Group works closely with all clients, establishing the needs and desires of each. We then take these dreams and mold
them into a Living Environment. Our designs stress the functionality of a home as well as the aesthetics. We balance imagination and
high concept against feasibility and economics. This allows you to have a unique yet livable home at a reasonable cost. It is this
process that David Ludwig has developed for designing for all his clients, whether Homeowner or Homebuilder.
David worked for several years with production homebuilding companies in the Denver area, rising from Draftsman to Vice-President of
the Design Department – working as Principal Designer and overseeing the work of multiple draftsmen and illustrators within the
department. It was during this career that David honed his skills at designing extremely livable homes that could be built in a cost
effective manner. Here he also developed the comprehensive set of Construction Drawings provided for each Ludwig Design Group
It is these years of experience, this concept of design, and this excellence of construction drawings that have made Ludwig Design
Group a sought-after firm for many of the Production Homebuilders in the Valley.
