  • River Valley is a modern home that transitions seamlessly into a mature, traditional Atlanta neighbourhood.

    This home sits on a one-acre, heavily wooded lot. Floor to ceiling windows frame sweeping views of the surrounding gardens and woodlands. A special key feature is an expansive window in the family room with a view of the zen-inspired garden.

    The project’s builder fulfilled several different objectives with this modern floor plan, including creating a dedicated office space that includes a large conference room for client meetings.

    This loft-style office space evokes the impression of a tree house, with windows on three sides, nestled in the canopy of the woods beyond.

    The stylish blend of industrial elements blend seamlessly with the modern design aesthetics of the entire house.

    The main dwelling area reflects a more streamlined modern style with simplified custom trim and natural-oiled matte hardwood floors. A three-story open railed staircase was designed to be sleek and modern, yet remain family-friendly. The expansive windows and open floor-plan provide a surprising amount of gallery wall space to showcase the owners' growing art collection.

    Sustainable features minimize operating costs, limit environmental impact and reduce maintenance. The house has earned a certified 49 Home Energy Efficiency Rating (HERS) score, which means that the energy efficiency features will save homeowners 51% off the projected utility bills for a similarly sized home built to standard housing codes.
