Designed by our Architects in Atlanta:

Atlanta Architect, Daniel Martins House

It’s every Atlanta architect’s dream to design his own home. I finally got my chance in 1996 after many years of searching for the right lot at the right price. We started with a south facing sloped lot in a wooded suburban site. The lot was passed over due to the challenge of building on a steep slope.

We decided to carve a driveway and entry court into the slope and make use of the lower level for kid’s bedrooms and play space. The architectural style of the house is basically a modern wood bungalow with steep pitched roofs and a center chimney. The interior design includes a large cherry cabinet piece to keep the space open but separate the living and dining spaces. The cabinet houses the fireplace and tv on the living room side and works as a china cabinet on the dining room side. Because octagons create panoramic views, the shape was used as a motif throughout the design process, including the living room, stairway and breakfast room. There is an abundance of south facing glass which provides light and a protected view of the woods. A cozy deck is pushed to the side to avoid blocking views of the woods.

The house design includes a studio in the upper roof area for me and my wife. It also has a crow’s nest porch off the back that has built-in planters for the railing, taking advantage of an area that offers full sun for growing plants.

We’ve enjoyed the house for over 20 years and have completed many recent home renovations. See the work of our interior designer in the portfolio for the latest additions.
