Architect's Home Asks $445K, Defines Sleek Minimalism

New, 1 comment


Step through the Japanese-inspired courtyard into the personal home of reputed Atlanta architect Staffan Svenson, listed for $445,000. This energy-efficient, modernist collision of rectangles offers 2,643 square feet and three bedrooms, tucked in pleasant Ormewood Park. Those who find the concrete-block aesthetic appalling need mosey on the down the road, but you can't deny the artful sleekness of this place, accented by reclaimed wood and what looks like a futuristic version of your grandmother's wood paneling. Behind it all spreads a larger-than-expected backyard. The grounds have been "professionally xeriscaped", which is a fancy way of saying they're less reliant on fresh water. Zen lives here. · 935 Berne St. SE [Estately]
