Mayflower

Asheville, North Carolina
Location
  • Asheville, North Carolina
  • Situated on a mountainside with views overlooking downtown Asheville, the Mayflower residence, originally constructed in the 1970’s was a complete renovation from its original configuration.

    The solid foundation and asymmetrical roofline were kept intact while the interior spaces were revised to fit the client’s lifestyle. With entry on the lower level through a square pivot door, you are directed to an elegant staircase leading to the main living areas. Cantilevered steel beams support the viewing deck’s roof and allow for a view unobstructed by support columns.

    Although the original house was aesthetically dated and structurally inadequate, the interesting roofline and exquisite mountain views made it apparent that this renovation could be something special.

    The existing home had a lot of space but was poorly organized. Carlton Edwards Architects simplified the layout and created an order to the architectural elements. It was important to them to focus on moments of transition so that interior/exterior relationships telegraphed through the space as cleanly as possible.
