Grand Award - Chattanooga Street Duplex

The most dramatic feature of the project is a central stair fabricated from steel plate and acrylic. A party wall, angled from front to back, creates further interest by dividing the building envelope into two trapezoidal spaces, each with one end wide and the other narrow.

The challenge the couple set for themselves was to design an obviously modern building that would still blend in with the Victorian character of the neighborhood. To achieve that goal, they maintained the same scale, massing, and materials as the surrounding homes but repurposed the ingredients in a more contemporary manner.
