Robert M. Cain, Architect
Interior modifications for an artist and attorney to their 3-story 1993 Post Modern style home. The existing home was designed for them by another architect, is in a very vibrant intown Atlanta neighborhood and has been the couple’s primary residence for 24 years.
The owners’ goals were specific:
While respecting the dynamism of the original design, achieve greater functionality and spatial cohesiveness by selectively decluttering the original design of hyperactive view-blocking fin walls, soffits and seemingly gratuitous horizontal planes.
Complete redesign of the poorly functioning claustrophobic kitchen including addition of a large view-facing kitchen window, a new kitchen pantry, useful storage, and the removal of walls, appliances and cabinetry visually separating the kitchen from the living area.
Selection and design of new finishes, materials, furniture, fixtures, custom millwork and LED lighting throughout.
Redesign of the existing master bath, guest bath, half bath, media room, dining room, 2nd floor stair landing, fireplace, office/gym and loft.
Provision of more opportunities for the exhibition of the couple’s extensive art collection.
Aesthetically the modifications, while respecting and retaining much of the original design, achieve a sophisticated clarity more emblematic of the owners’ evolved lifestyle.
