residence-transitional-exterior

 Carlton Edwards designed this striking modern-rustic home that blurs the boundaries between indoors and out, located in AshevilleNorth Carolina. This 4,472 square-foot home (around 6,000 square feet with the garage and covered porch areas) embraces its opportunity to create relaxing spaces both indoors and out. The main interior living spaces, kitchen, dining, and living area are situated under an exposed-frame pavilion roof, as well as the porch and outdoor kitchen. There are four bedrooms are five-and-a-half bathrooms.

There is an almost flawless transition between interior and exterior spaces, bringing the outdoors in and creating a sense of living within a forested landscape. Upon entrance to the residence, you are welcomed by a “warm glow of clear-finished cypress walls and rich walnut-stained flooring.” Great attention to detail was given throughout the home in the relationship of materials as well as the ambient lighting and composition of space.

The home offers a stunning contrast between a traditional style entry and living spaces that showcase more relaxed, contemporary living. In the pavilion area, an elegant transition is provided by merging the interior with the outdoor terrace, all underneath a continuous ceiling. Indoor and outdoor living spaces are divided by a wall of glass, allowing for visual connectivity between the home and nature.
