A House Designed For Wellness

The exterior of the House Beautiful Whole Home 2018 in Atlanta, Georgia, featuring Marvin Ultimate and Elevate windows and doors.
The House Beautiful Whole Home project challenges the definition of home, taking it from a place to hang your hat to a sanctuary of self-care. 

Could a house really help you live longer? That’s the idea behind the Whole Home project from House Beautiful—a home in Atlanta meticulously designed to inspire healthy living, a happy outlook and a respite from the chaos of life. 

With guidance from a dedicated team of professionals—including a builder, architect and multiple designers—this home was built expressly around people’s needs. Physical, mental and social well-being take a front seat and are realized in creative ways, from a kitchen engineered to inspire healthy eating and a no-excuses fitness space, to a homey living room to inspire more family gatherings and opportunities to take in nature and views from every room. 

Designed for family gatherings and quiet conversations, the living room is flanked by opportunities to take in the view and connect with nature. The lines between indoor and outdoor are luxuriously blurry thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows and an expansive Marvin Ultimate Bi-Fold door

Forget a dark basement home office or an impromptu space carved out of a kitchen or dining room. The office lets light fuel productivity with a unique configuration of floor-to-ceiling Modern Direct Glaze windows. 

Sometimes motivation for wellness is all about easy access. The home gym brings ample natural light and bright, energizing colors for an in-home workout that’s anything but boring. With Ultimate double hung windows that look more like doors, it would be easy to imagine cycling through the French countryside from the comforts of your own home. 

Getting out of bed in the morning might be a little easier with a relaxing routine to start the day. We can imagine soaking in the tub and taking in the fall foliage through the Ultimate double hung windows, or perfecting makeup in the extra flattering sunlight in the bedroom.
