DAYTONIA // Susan Appleton Architect
This new home is oriented along the north-south axis with the public portion of the home offset slightly from the private half, providing separate garden spaces for public and private use. The public garden on the south provides a “view” through a covered porch from the living space, while the private garden on the north provides “outdoor rooms” for the bedrooms. The hand-built steel doors and windows further add to the refined level of detail.
Design of this home was driven by the desire to create a building that was one wide room so public spaces would have natural light from three sides. This strategy resulted in plenty of wall space for art and long interior vistas—which make a relatively small square footage feel spacious.
