“A modern home nestled in the middle of Charleston, the creation of this sanctuary was based on a desire to bring multi-generational living back to the urban core. While many historic properties in the area might have a carriage house, this home took the opposite approach. The existing small “freeman’s cottage” was restored and updated into a cozy guest cottage, while the more modern main home rises behind its historic neighbors. Nestled in the trees, this tall home creates an urban refuge to enjoy. The home’s two-story screened porch and rooftop deck connect it to the seasonally tuned weather of the south. Catching breezes and connecting the interior to nature, a large movable glass wall helps bring the outdoors into this modern urban home. Wrapped in shou sugi ban siding, tall windows, and minimalist modern fixtures, this home is still able to blend in the background and create a hidden urban utopia for the owners.”
