Project Description

2000 RADA
On The Boards/Merit

Ferguson Shamamian & Rattner's graceful concept for McAllister Point Model Homes, a master planned community on the grounds of an 18th century plantation, befits the project's historical setting. The parcel of land designated for the project offers unobstructed views of a protected rice basin and bird nesting sanctuary and of the Ogeechee River. "The plan was generated by the location," says principal-in-charge Don Rattner. "Rather than just let one or two houses have that view, we decided to create a more 'urban' envelope."

FS&R followed the model of the traditional Savannah square, a landscaped square bordered by houses. They coupled it with plans designed in the Charleston side-yard tradition--each home is turned perpendicular to the street and contains a two-story side porch. The strategy honors the project's Southern roots, and it succeeds in granting all of McAllister Point's residents hard-to-beat views. "Having the houses frame the commons is just a great idea," said one judge.
