Ciel Lot 10
This custom home is located in CIEL, atop Elk Mountain on the North side of Asheville, NC with views of downtown and the mountains beyond. The developer and architect collaborated to create a modern home envisioned as a series of boxes stacked atop one another and cantilevered off the mountain side. It was so successful that the window and door company still use the photography of this home on their site to this day! The walls of glass let in all the natural light possible, and allow homeowners to enjoy the change of seasons from any room.
Our design team collaborated on the developer’s behalf for selections of all fixtures and finishes throughout the house. We designed the Kitchen and Baths, including a custom concrete sink in the Powder Bath and a custom stone tile clad fireplace detail. We also collaborated with the builder and subcontractors on the design/build execution. The A+R team made regular site visits throughout construction to ensure the design concept was implemented as intended. Upon completion, we sourced furniture, area rugs and artwork through local showrooms and galleries. The end result is a modern mountain home that reflects its location and becomes a gallery full of local artwork, while simultaneously making the most of its setting and views.
“Retro+Fit Design has worked with Allard + Roberts several times over the last few years. We consider them integral to the overall design of the home. They are very easy to work with and have wonderful design “eyes”. Allard + Roberts understand how light, color, and texture are integral in the designed space. They are able to come up with quick solutions when design conundrums arise. I would highly recommend Allard + Roberts.”—Retro+Fit Design L.L.C.
