Mid-Century Architecture Tour | Warren Wilson Chapel

Built in 1964 | Design by J. Bertram King and Charles M. Sapenfield

front2

The construction of the Warren Wilson Presbyterian Church and College Chapel was made possible by a matching gift from an anonymous donation and contributions from friends of the college, church members and alumni.  Local materials were used as much as possible.  Stone was hauled from nearby Bee Tree Valley by student work crews and the walnut wood for the cross in the chancel came from the college forest.  The cross was designed and made by Hardy Davidson, a neighbor and Farm School alumnus.  The design of the structure points upward and the many triangles are used to represent the trinity.  In 1968 the North Carolina Institute of Architects gave J. Bertram King Architects an honorary award for the design.

Mid-Century Drive By | Bert King’s Poston House

IMG_0716I happened to be showing a property to one of our clients yesterday when I found myself in front of this beauty in the Grovewood Park neighborhood of Asheville. It is one of our team’s favorites, but I don’t often get to drive by it. NC Modernist Homes confirms it is a Bert King designed home. It is a few blocks away from Bert’s own 1950’s home on Country Club drive. Tax records show this one was built in 1954 for Ray and Francella Poston. The home is approximately 1958 sqft with 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths with a rare flat roof. The home’s original landscape was designed by Doan Ogden. Cheers! IMG_0715

Mid-Century Remodel in Sunset Mountain

Screen Shot 2015-03-20 at 5.13.40 AMPrior to having dinner last night at a Bert King designed residence on Town Mountain Rd, I drove by to see the remodeling progress of the former Lerner House built in 1969 and designed by local architect Larry Traber. The home’s exterior walls, designed in the style of a mansard roof, have been removed and the center section has a second level added to take advantage of the dramatic views of Asheville beyond.  Screen Shot 2015-03-20 at 5.25.22 AM

The home is located in Sunset Mountain, one of Asheville’s premiere mid-century neighborhoods located off of Town Mountain Rd where there are currently two mid-century homes for sale.
