Working with Builder Magazine, "world-class" architect Andres Duany, and production builder, Beazer Homes, MJP, Inc. designed and specified kitchen and bathrooms for three show houses. Each unit had a different challenge with a different client profile, a different size and shape of space, and a different target price point. Following are photos and details of these very unique urban infill Atlanta homes.
The loft, designed for a young single urbanite on a tight budget of space and money. His home is also his work space. Notice the use of architectural materials - concrete floor, brick wall.
Suspended cabinetry and curvilinear design make the most of a tight space in the loft masterbath.
Warmth exudes from the "live above" kitchen in the woods used, the bronze cast tiles, and other craftsman style details.
The live above is designed on three floors for a family with children that lives on the upper two floors and uses the main floor as retail space that could also become a rental flat with kitchenette and full accessible bath and separate entrance. For this small family the budget is a little more generous in terms of money and much more so in space.
The Lifespan is designed on two floors for a well-traveled affluent empty-nester couple with retail/office space on the street side and living space on the back portion with a guest space on the second floor. For this couple, the budget of space and cost is more generous.
The master bath in the Lifespan home features a luxury shower, claw foot tub, and his and her vanity areas.
