  • 880 Kings Court has recently been completed and is located in the Virginia Highlands neighbourhood.

    The idea for the house is to create a masonry “frame” that allows the siding to figuratively become more than just a means to enclose the building envelope. Both the house and landscape emphasise pattern of materials. For example, two types of cementitious panels are used to create a collage on both the East and West elevations of the house.

    Details are kept to a minimum: concrete floors on three levels, random-width oak on the top floor, sleek European-style cabinets, and trim that is unobtrusive.

    Because the house is in a dense neighbourhood, windows are placed to capture light and views while maintaining privacy. The rear of the house faces a protected creek and wooded ravine.

    This property is part of the Atlanta Design Festival MA! Architecture Tour 2017™
