The Windsor house is located on a steep site in a developed neighborhood in North Asheville, just below Reynolds Mountain. The shed roof contrasts the site topography forming a modest entry that opens up to the expansive mountain views at the rear of the home. The living, dining, and outdoor areas are placed to capture these views of the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains. The interior is wrapped in cypress and European beach and is accented with darkened steel elements to fashion a warm modern interior design. Energy modeling during the design phase, along with LoE windows, foam insulation and a geothermal heat pump create a very efficient home.
