Cat Mountain Residence contemporary exterior

Cat Mountain Residence

Conceived as a remodel and addition, the final design iteration for this home is uniquely multifaceted. Structural considerations required a more extensive tear down, however the clients wanted the entire remodel design kept intact, essentially recreating much of the existing home. The overall floor plan design centers on maximizing the views, while extensive glazing is carefully placed to frame and enhance them. The residence opens up to the outdoor living and views from multiple spaces and visually connects interior spaces in the inner court. The client, who also specializes in residential interiors, had a vision of ‘transitional’ style for the home, marrying clean and contemporary elements with touches of antique charm. Energy efficient materials along with reclaimed architectural wood details were seamlessly integrated, adding sustainable design elements to this transitional design. The architect and client collaboration strived to achieve modern, clean spaces playfully interjecting rustic elements throughout the home.

Will you come build for me in Georgia - this exact house? - Hi, I'm a fellow houzzer. Turnan Designs. I am in love and I do mean in love with everything about this house. We will be building in the next 3 years and I think I have found the house I want to build in this. Will you build in GA? (probably not:) Are the plans for sale via your design firm with list of vendors and material list? I do look forward to hearing from you.
