Architectural Tour | Smokey Park Supper Club

IMG_6354As a member of our local chapter of American Institute of Architects we were invited on a tour today of the developing Smokey Park Supper Club. It was a great opportunity to get another sneak peek. Lead architect Myles Alexander of Form and Function led the tour for his fellow architects in the community.IMG_6351

The project is one of the largest assemblages of shipping containers in the United States. The overall goal is to leave as much of the containers as raw as possible. Exterior walls are required to be built out with insulation on the interior. These walls will ultimately be finished out with equally rustic materials. The interior walls dividing rooms will remain in their natural state. The wood floors will simply be coated and polished as they are. Externally, the corten steel is coated to retain the natural rust surface.Supper Club Comp

The rustic nature of the project shrouds an underlying sophistication. Much like the work of a set designer, the siting of the building creates a theatrical experience with perfectly framed views of the river along with elements of the building’s industrial context. The decking naturally follows the flood plane on one side marrying the structure to the river and then around to the road. The layered experience from Riverview Road through the interior to the deck and beyond to the river again should provide a stimulating backdrop for endless entertaining. I know Kelly and I can’t wait to hang out and toast to it’s opening. Cheers! IMG_6332

Parade of Homes | Peregrine 05 by Roost

21 St Charles Pl Asheville NC-small-001-Front-666x445-72dpiPeregrine 05, as David Way of Roost refers to it, is the latest in a developing series of Roost homes that evolved over the past decade. Having seen Peregrine 04 at the Parade of Homes a couple of years back, David’s clients sought him out to design a version on their lot in the Lakeview Park neighborhood. What evolved was an expanded and highly customized 2000sqft version adding in an equal amount of outdoor living space.Peregrine Comp

The Peregrine line of homes originated from the need to cleverly pack a lot of home in an efficient, one-level living space. Peregrine 01 in Montford was a 3 bedroom and 2 bath home constructed in 1400 sqft of indoor living space. Two outdoor living spaces were carved out of both ends of what is basically a box. Typically, the outdoor spaces are sheltered by a strong horizontal canopy.

21 St Charles Pl Asheville NC-small-005-Front-666x443-72dpiToday’s Peregrine 05 is approximately 2000 sqft with a luxurious owner’s suite on one end and extended canopies to shelter the outdoor living spaces. As with all Peregrine homes they are built with quality from core to finish. The framework begins with 2×6 construction, and engineered floor joists and subflooring. Walls are further tightened packed with formaldehyde free insulation.21 St Charles Pl Asheville NC-small-027-Kitchen-666x443-72dpi

For finish details Roost’s own cabinetry shop provided all the cabinetry throughout the home including Roost’s exclusive closet system. The home features extensive hidden storage in both the living space and owner’s suite. They even crafted the built-in master bed with hidden storage. Many of the cabinets are finished off with their own line of cabinet pulls.21 St Charles Pl Asheville NC-small-032-Closet-666x443-72dpi

Curious to see more? You can view the online tour or, better yet, come get the skinny on this cool home during the upcoming Asheville Home Builder’s Association’s Parade of Homes. You’ll be able to see all the finished details no shown here. David and the owner, Joy, will be there to answer any questions. Kelly and I will be there to assist them. You can stop by on either Oct. 11, 12, 18 or 19 from Noon until 5pm. To find out more on the complete tour click here. We all hope to see you there. Cheers!
