ARCHIVE March 2016

Riceville Rd Private Residence


The residents of this contemporary home approached us with some very specific objectives. One of the most fun was they were going to be building the home themselves and we were to help them navigate the world of construction. We became not only their architects, but also their teachers, tool lenders and sometimes therapists.

The polished concrete floors run throughout the 1600 sqft home. Each niche and corner designed with specific function. The house has an open floor plan with a private master suite. The master suite contains the master bath, bedroom and closet and is contained in the smaller volume of the two. The larger volume houses the living room, kitchen, guest suite, and mech./laundry room.

The exterior of the home is sheathed in corten panels, cypress siding and an accent wall of bark panels that extends from the interior to the exterior at the entry foyer.

The interior focused on clean lines and large windows to draw your eye out to the view of the blue ridge park way that snakes it way along the mountains on the horizon.
