Red Diamond Achiever Award profile: Lake Arrowhead Residence by Bryan Jones of Jones Pierce ArchitectureBy Berit Griffin
Bryan Jones of Jones Pierce Architecture (Atlanta, Ga.) was named a winner in the 2014 Red Diamond Achiever Award program for Lake Arrowhead Residence, a gorgeous modern home set among Georgia’s charming natural beauty. Integrity windows were used throughout the project to let in the neighboring views while dark exterior colors were used to make the home blend amidst its breathtaking surroundings.
According to Jones’ contest entry,
This home in Waleska, Georgia feels like a tree house with building projections hanging in space high over the steep lot below. The use of large fixed windows makes the interior spaces feel as if they are part of the outside, and puts the focus on the view. We used a language of materials on the exterior with different finishes on the foundation, house body, and the room projections, and wanted the windows to stand out while fitting into the natural setting. The warm, dark bronze clad color chosen fit into the surrounding wooded setting, while at the same time provided a clean modern look similar to metal windows without looking excessively commercial.
