Robert Green House Paired with Burns Century Interiors

Continuing the philosophy that “Every project was a very special work of art,” this 2-acre private estate home in Atlanta designed in 1980 by the late architect Robert Green, an apprentice to Frank Lloyd Wright and organic modernist, has undergone a complete professional interior transformation. While maintaining the significant architectural elements of stone, glass and planked wood ceilings, interior designer and artist Burns Century, known for her holistically modern interiors, has continued the dialogue of the organic experience creating a harmonious and balanced sanctuary. Each space was composed artistically and planned to function effortlessly.

“Surroundings truly make a difference, and I design spaces to inspire so people can go into the world and do what they do best. When I walked through the doors of this home before the renovation, I knew it was special. The organic details were there - stone, slate, wood ceilings & glass. So were the 80’s though - laminate, mirrors, conflicting woods, gold and did I mention mirrors! I envisioned a balance of materials of stone, concrete, metal, woods and light with abstractions and symbolism of colors, materials and forms to ground the interior while enhancing the significant architectural details and still being true to modern living in the sense of today.”

Not your typical Atlanta home. This is a place to live life elevated. Organic design isn’t just about using natural products or inspiration from nature. So to continue the organic process, dubbed by FLW, the design continues the relationship of the exterior with the architecture into the interior and the human experience through a unifying composition of color, pattern, form and materials. One inspiration in this house comes from the observance of abstract shapes created by nature’s sun traveling through the architectural triangle windows to form playful geometric shapes and shadows on the walls and floors of the interior. The design takes that as inspiration to use 3-dimensional materials such as abstract tiles and fixtures that create angular play of light on walls. Benches and cabinetry float off the concrete floors and boundaries of walls and planes are broken by extending materials from one side to another just as the stone and wood extend from inside out. A color palette of complimentary opposites balances the spaces. Textured concrete floors, gilded cork, ebonized wood, teak, leather, eco-lacquer grey, dimensional tiles, leathered granite, authentic designer fixtures, integral bathroom sink tops and custom designer cabinetry are some of the top quality finishes used throughout the spaces. Everything curated has a meaning or purpose for being there.

The home is formed by three wings, unique shapes,and luxurious but non-ostentatious materials including a spa bathroom with 2-person steam/aromatherapy shower and vibracoustic/chromotherapy bathing, a custom wine gallery, coffee bar, chef’s kitchen with two of everything composed as a mixed media collage overlooking the beautiful floor level outdoor living area with fire table exotic wood platform and salt water pool. All the current media, WAPS, security and home automation apps are in place as needed but not seen.
