This custom Residence is located in the historic district of Chattanooga, TN. Because of its location, the custom design required special attention to local architectural design requirements.
The owners were looking to design a home with enough space for their family. Additionally, visiting grandparents, family members and friends had to be taken into account. All three levels communicate via a main stairwell at the center of the home. The large ground floor with the open living and kitchen, the spacious dining area, a large guest suite and large office/den feels warm and inviting. The master suite and three additional bedrooms are located on the third floor. Finally, the basement includes a large theater room, large storage room and a gym. The client was very involved in the design of the residence as well as the custom stairwell design.
The existing vacant site varied in elevation more than 25 feet from front to rear. The Primary street facade had to be raised while the rear of the residence was kept level with the was included to take advantage of the sloped site. The detached garage is elevated at the rear of the property due to the rear alley’s elevation above the site.
