Mid-Century Masters

Two Masters | They were not exactly contemporary – but two architects delivered, within the space of less than a decade, two world architectural jewels that made history for the last seven decades. The French-Swiss Le Corbusier and the Brazilian Oscar Niemeyer have a point of intersection in their careers that make them unique. They both designed, each in their own way, an entire city from a drawing table. Corbusier bequeathed to humanity, in 1951, the Indian Chandigarh, and Niemeyer, raised, alongside Lúcio Costa, the capital of Brazil, Brasília, in 1960. See the full article here. Cheers!

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

Modern Monday

SNOW DAY! If you are living in Asheville you already know it is a snow day here. While our typical winters see light snows that last around 24 hours we were treated to a beautiful winter wonderland worthy of a Bing Crosby tune. 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!

Sunday Morning Modern

Kelly and I had the privilege of touring this home twice during construction right up until completion, along with, Elihu and Michael of Siegman Associates. As always, their ability to design with the site in mind stood out. The house flowed with the contours of the site both taking advantage of views and creating private garden spaces to maximize the indoor/outdoor living that we treasure here in WNC.

Carolina Home and Garden Magazine speaks to this in their article here. Pour some coffee and wander through this morning. And don’t forget the Beaverdam Art Tour later today. Cheers!

The Cabin

This past Labor Day got us thinking about escaping into nature. What is more natural given the beautiful environment we live here in Asheville? Today’s modern cabin has lost its Lincoln Log look and has evolved in every direction under the tree filtered sun. We’ve long been collecting architectural inspiration at Modern Asheville on our Pinterest page. So, relax and go here and slip quietly into cabin dreamland. Happy Hump Day!
