Make Your Modern | Home Story 04

California Sunset | Andrea and Lucy fell immediately in love with this property given the hidden location and context. While the home’s foundation sits on an urban hillside walkable to restaurants and downtown, the elevation allows it to live in up in the natural environment reminiscent of their life in Northern California. Here they get to enjoy both the urban and natural world. Ultimately, the San Francisco couple took what was a fifties ranch home and elevated it on many levels — vertically, functionally and aesthetically.

The main level of the ranch home was maximized by combining functions and offering spaces that could be either offices or entertaining spaces using that Danish style simplicity, lightness and unity. All rooms were opened up inside and outside creating expansiveness and a needed relationship with nature. The upper level addition was key in the requirements to provide both a private guest space and more importantly a writer’s retreat in the clouds for Lucy.

The end result for Andrea and Lucy is an approachable and joyful modern home that marrys the urban and natural context while bringing their own relaxed northern California vibe to our mountains.

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

So, while you are romancing this day, if you are able, enjoy some inspirational mountain escapes both here and here and just a little more here.  Wishing you a safe and cozy day tdaoy. Cheers!
