The Modern Atlanta Home Tour is a two day self-guided tour of homes in Atlanta. The architecture tour is mostly private residences, but occasionally a few commercial buildings are featured. It is usually held on a weekend in mid June – MA was founded in 2007. The tour is the finale of “Design is Human Week” – a week of speakers and events focusing on design, sustainability, and innovation.
Project: Olympic Residence
Location: 238 Olympic Place Decatur, GA 30080
Architect: Lightroom Inc.
General Contractor: Cablik Enterprises
Interior Design: Suzanne Seymour
Landscape: Core Landscape Group
Square Footage: 5,108 sq ft.
– Basement: Living room, bedroom, bathroom, laundry, bedroom with attached bathroom, detached two-story garage
– living room, kitchen, office, half bathroom, dining room, play room
– master bedroom, master bathroom, 2 bedrooms with Jack & Jill bathroom
– enclosed stairwell up to a roof deck with covered & uncovered spaces
Roughly, the house is an “L” shape. The office (1st floor), children’s bedrooms (2nd floor), and roof deck occupy the front wing of the house. the “back corner” is the living room/kitchen/stairwell… and the dining room (1st floor) & master suite (2nd floor) are on the right wing.
Another home where the stairs are located behind the kitchen wall! Possibly a pantry (or, in this case, used as a child’s playroom) is located off to the side. Also, notice the walnut waterfall edge, kitchen island.
A very different home that maximizes exterior surfaces. I wonder if the designers wanted to emphasize the hallways and the walk from space to space. As far as finishings, the siding looks like it is weathering unevenly unfortunately. It was nice to see a home that had a office or flex space integrated into the design. Since we work from home, its nice to see an office that just isn’t a converted bedroom.
