Architects Design Their Own Passive Houses

Given access to all the great evironmental elements we have here in Asheville many people and design practitioners utilize passive principles in home design and constructions. Doing this provides a greater connection to the outside while minimizing utilities. Kelly and I both have southern facing hillside homes that benefit from both sun and wind. Check out this nice article from Becky Harris for Houzz for more ideas. Cheers!

8 Mid-Century Photogaphers

The mid-century modern period of architecture and design, which ran roughly from the 1930s to the 1960s, gave us such iconic architects as Eero Saarinen and Mies van der Rohe. However, our understanding of these buildings is informed through the photographers who chronicled their designs — adding perspective, context and sometimes a little drama. Although we can still visit many of these buildings today, the following photographers allowed us to see the work of acclaimed architects as they saw it themselves.  See the rest of this article by Daisy Alioto here. Enjoy!

SOLD | Five Points Original

Yeah! Our sellers just closed on their charming Five Points home allowing them to move to their beautiful contemporary farmhouse outside of town.

Kelly and Troy
