Brilliant Regent, Inspiring King, Dixon and Pak

This weekend 2 great Atlanta bloggers posted 2 great posts about 2 great Atlanta homes by 2 great Atlanta architects. Bloggers, posts, homes, and architects are way, way above average even by Atlanta standards (where everything is naturally above average).

Blogger "Things That Inspire posted:
"New on the Market: a beautiful Atlanta Home."
That's an understatement. It's a new traditional home by Atlanta Architect D. Stanley Dixon, winner of multiple Shutze Awards.

Things That Inspire went above and beyond call of blogger duty, personally touring the house, taking pictures and getting it down for all to see.

Blogger Brilliant Asylum's posted:
"Sunday Shopping"
is about "...a Regents Park Condo for sale: "The 6,885 square foot home is on sale, currently marked down from $4.1 million to $2.85 million."

Yong Pak of Pak Heydt & Associates LLC. was the architect of this one. Youg is young and already has an amazing portfolio.

Brilliant Asylum's sharp eye for million dollar mark downs and her keen memory provide links to Regents Park as a decorator show house. You just have to go her post and drool for yourself.

Atlanta blogger, Style Court posted about Regents Park last May:
"Carithers and Wearstler in the Same Room."
Sneaking great Atlanta style past Style Court is like trying to sneak the sun past a rooster.

Your humble architecture tourist is grateful to bloggers, architects, and owners.

  4. Thank you for the mention, Terry! We are so fortunate to live in a city with so many amazing homes, I marvel at them everyday as I drive and walk around.

    I have admired the house in my post this week for years. It is highly asymmetrical, which is usually not my personal favorite, but after seeing some of the pictures on the real estate listing I knew that it was a special house.

    I am beginning to realize that the highly symmetrical French or Georgian style homes that I have long admired might be more limiting architecturally (on the inside) than these asymmetrical houses - there is much more freedom of movement inside a home that is not dictated by symmetry.

    Have a great weekend!

  5. I like houses that ramble and seem to be added on over the years. Ramblers can keep the intimidating bulk down and they can get more light into the house. A new bumped out room can have windows on 3 sides.

    I think balance is more challenging to do than symmetry. Both can be great.
