We were approached by our clients to design a mid-century inspired home, on their property within The Ramble neighborhood in south Asheville. In tandem with their house, the clients also requested a home office for a family-therapy practice. The structures had to relate to each other, while still feeling both distinct and separate to maintain privacy in each.
The main house sits into the topography, and extends into the site to hold the views of the property, where the clients intend to graze small farm animals. The main level plan is highly-rationalized, with one, long, single-loaded hall that connects each room of the house. As one travels down this hall, the rooms transition from public living, dining, and kitchen areas, to private bedrooms, while the topography drops further and further beneath — ultimately, making the primary suite at the end of the hall cantilevered over the landscape. The smaller, lower level holds a three car garage, and mudroom. There is also an integrated carport adjacent to the garage that is large enough to park an RV.
The attention to detail from our clients, and their desire to create a contemporary home while referencing Modern aesthetics, has created a project with a sumptuous, yet refined material palette, and striking profile.
