The Grant Park House by ARCHITECTUREFIRM began with a classic Atlanta craftsman style bungalow in the historic Grant Park neighborhood that was in need of significant repair. The extensive renovation to the roof that was required allowed for a complete reconceiving of the home in plan and section, creating a new sky-lit single volume and wide open living spaces with a lofted floor above the more intimate bed and bath rooms.

The dark exterior conceals a glowing, bright white interior that reflects the light of the day and seasons and, in tandem with the skylights, gives a sense of the shifting color, angle, and physical presence of the daylight. The honest material palette exposes moments of new wood framing within large expanses of soft white and plaster walls, creating a quiet backdrop for the life lived in this home and the visual dynamics of the southern sun.
