Builder's Choice and Custom Home Awards Finalist
Designing for the specific needs of a client is one of the more rewarding and challenging aspects of custom residential architecture. Each space was designed around particular furniture arrangements and artworks. Every room was tailored to fit the owners' needs, functions and objects. In particular are the display cases integrated into the rooms that hold the geologist owners' extensive mineral collection.
The home was also designed to blend into its surroundings. Orientation and placement on the site provides spectacular views without marring the views from the neighboring mountains. We worked with the owners' space requirements and developed a simple massing for the home and a low-pitched roof form that appears to hug the sloping land.
The home's green building features include solar hot water panels, rainwater cisterns, high efficiency insulation and FSC certified cedar shingles and interior doors. The home is Energy Star and NC HealthyBuilt Homes certified.
