RECIPIENT OF THE INTEGRATED DESIGN AWARD
The Seville Residence in Atlanta, Georgia has been chosen for an integrated design award for extensive commitment to resource efficiency. Rather than starting fresh the home was expanded, updated and made more efficient for another 100 years at an even lower impact. The historic home was converted into an executive style residence that appeals to the local market while maintaining a traditional design and many of the original materials.
This 1918 home is located in Druid Hills, an Atlanta registered historic district designed by Frederick Law Olmstead. The house was renovated using resource efficient principles while being expanded from the original 2300 square foot to a total of 4700 square foot. The existing building had an expansive attic space that led the project program. The living area of the house was doubled with only a small addition on the first floor and the addition of three dormers to the attic. The renovation incorporated energy and water efficiency improvements, sustainable products, best indoor air quality and waste management practices. The Seville Residence also served as the EarthCraft Renovation Showcase project featured at the Southern Building Show.
