Modern Monday | the Farmhouse

At Modern Asheville we love all sorts of modern home hybrids. One of our favorite blends is combining the modern house with the farmhouse. Cool, clean lines meet warm and rustic vernacular shapes and textures. The 2015 Parade of Homes here in Asheville recently showcased a special example of this designed by Scott Huebner of Brickstack Architects and constructed by Longview Builders. Screen Shot 2015-12-06 at 6.26.42 AM

The 3800 sqft home brings together special features such as steel beams and fireplace surround, rough sawn white oak plank walls, 22ft high dining/living room with exposed beams and great indoor/outdoor living in the new Beaucatcher Heights subdivision above Kenilworth.

Brickstack Architects | On the Boards

10353038_10205656165458588_6378752917551751663_nLast weekend we visited with architect Scott Huebner, a fellow AIA member, at his completed residential project on Evelyn Place for the Modern Atlanta sponsored home tour here in Asheville. This was following an office visit where we were able to sit down with him and see several of the projects he was working on. Below are some samples of some of his current projects on the drawing boards and the various design challenges. Enjoy! Kelly and Troy

Designed for a newly relocated couple from Maryland, the 2600 sf home is perched on a steep, wooded site, overlooking the beautiful Appalachian Mountains.  Large windows, a clean metal roof and steel structure allow the house to float lightly over the landscape.  Approached from the uphill side, the house and 2 car garage is accessed from a timber and steel bridge, allowing easy access to all main floor living spaces, master suite and office.  The lower floor includes two bedroom, bathroom, and a large shop space.

Located along a beautiful, winding stretch of mountain road, the new 3500 sf house is sited on a steep wooded site with expansive views to Mt. Pisgah, downtown Asheville, and the rolling Blue Ridge Mountains beyond.  Designed with exposed timbers, steel and glass, the house displays a careful marriage of modern architecture with traditional and robust materials.

A new 2400 sf, contemporary home with a modest budget on a small and impossibly steep site in West Asheville.  The homeowner, newly relocated from Charlotte, wanted a home that expressed her adventuresome and vibrant personality.  The small footprint is configured in a 3 story tower, with attached garage, that cantilevers over the steep landscape with expressive steel structure.  The front courtyard provides a friendly face to the street while multiple rear terraces take advantage of the eastward views of distant mountain ranges and immediate views to the River Art District and French Broad River below.

An extensive, contemporary renovation to a neglected, modernist home from the late 60’s.  Large expanses of glass replace the dated, battered walls with small punched openings. A clean, standing seam metal roof replaces the failing, flat roof membrane.  In addition to a complete demolition (and opening up) of main level, the garage gets a 3rd bay, the lower level adds a bunk room and home theatre, and a dynamic third story addition takes full advantage of the jaw dropping and expansive views to the west.
