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

Down the “Mid-Century” Rabbit Hole

Artist Roger Capron | You know how it goes — you are scrolling the internet and one image pops up and suddenly you are off into a new visual world. That is exactly how it worked when I saw the above image and got lost in the rhythm, colors and geometry of this tile piece. Roger Capron had been a prolific French artist born in Vincennes, France on September 4, 1922. Interested in drawing, he studied Applied Arts in Paris from 1939 to 1943 and worked as an art teacher in 1945. He died on November 8, 2006 leaving behind a considerable body of work that is recognized worldwide. I know you’ll want to see more so go HERE. 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!
