Designer Spotlight | TWO Wilson Architects

Kelly and I sat down with Aaron and Calder Wilson this week to catch up on all the projects they are involved with. We see their name pop up frequently around town designing everything from new historic style to modern homes and, also, renovations. Two homes they helped design are currently on the real estate market. One, is our listing at 215 Victoria Way in Waynesville. The other is a one level, modern home in central Asheville.Wilson 02

While we love some of the new built homes they are working on we are particularly drawn to the vision they bring for renovations. They seem gifted a creating more open and functional spaces while both simplifying and enriching the architecture. We hope to tour one of their projects next week. Wilson Comp 01

A Modern Cottage Kitchen by Roost

IMG_7659Kelly and I are big fans of Roost made bathrooms and kitchens. We find each one, no matter the style, to have a refreshingly simple, clean and balanced aesthetic. David seems to know how to get the most out of minimal means. A modern mantra if there ever was one!

IMG_0269In this example, David was asked to redesign a kitchen for a fairly new {built in 2008} contemporary arts and crafts-ish, suburban home — the ones that seem to define new Asheville housing for the past decade. Loving the location, the clients called David to save them from the Home Depot styling they were immersed in.

David selected only three materials to create the palette for the kitchen: White Oak for the closet wall, cabinets, shelves and furniture, white subway tile for backsplash walls and white carerra marble for the counters and tabletop. Nothing new in materials, but it is that simple and sophisticated, Danish modern approach that makes it a home run. The kitchen perfectly blends retro cottage with urban industrial making it as historic and warm as it is clean and cool.Mardell Comp 1

The clients will now be able to walk into their kitchen via a small mudroom with places to lay down their bags, kick off their snow covered shoes and hang their parka. With the open shelving and flowing layout the Snowpocalpyse supplies can be stored in minutes. Gone is the dividing island from kitchen to living space replaced by a centralizing farmhouse table allowing more flow for living, working and gathering. Laundry and extra storage are tucked behind sliding barn doors to be opened or closed as needed.IMG_0266

Last, the ingenious and not readily apparent note about this kitchen is that David and his shop designed and built the kitchen elements so they could be flat packed and shipped. While it looks and sounds Ikea, in this case you receive quality, custom components that are solid wood through and through.IMG_0267

So, if you are looking to swap something sleepy and standard for something more life giving and “locally made” you may want to give Roost a call. I know we would. Cheers! Troy
