It is a nod to southern hospitality as it welcomes visitors and serves as a spot where the homeowners can sit and interact with the neighborhood.

The house takes advantage of a vertical structure and features a spiraling staircase that gracefully links all the floors and merges the spaces in a very elegant manner. On the ground floor, there’s an open living area that opens to the courtyard through sliding glass doors, overlooking the riverbed and the distant landscape. On one side of the floor plan you can see the kitchen, concealed inside this white shell. It’s both open and closed, making the most of the curved wall that surrounds it.
