Make Your Modern | Story 03

Urban Mountain Home | Jonathan Bryant of Form Design Concept crafted this urban infill home to stand out in its West Asheville neighborhood. Refined and highly livable, this structure reflects modern Scandinavian mountain home designs. On the exterior, large spans of glass combine with rustic siding (reminiscent of Japanese “shou sugi ban”), integrating the home comfortably in its forested locale.

The interior living experience was carefully considered within the constraints of the tight urban lot. The lower entry is convenient to off-street parking and offers easy access for guests. The deck above floats in the trees while providing privacy from the street, and in the back, opens to a private covered patio enclosed by a fenced lawn for pets, play, and further escape from the public world. Window openings and light play to context from all directions to balance natural light with privacy.

Overall, the home provides a sleek luxury escape within a small urban footprint. The home was constructed by Steel Root Builders. Cheers! Troy and Kelly

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday to which turned 10 years old today. On this date in 2009 began capturing modern art, design and real estate in our region. The first post was on the Blue Ridge Parkway Destination Center. That year it was exciting to receive an average of 60 views per day having assumed no more than 3. Ten years later it is 5 times that and growing. Thank you {always} for your patronage, loyalty and appreciation. And some love, too. Cheers!
