Designed for an middle-aged couple with adult children, this 5-bedroom house is located on a private, beautifully wooded site in North Atlanta. The property gently slopes up from the street to a plateau before dropping down more that 50 feet at the rear of the site. Utilizing this drop in terrain, the design places all primary interior and exterior entertainment spaces on a level below the entry plateau, and lifts the four guest rooms one level above. The plateau level serves as the house entry and forms the upper space of the 2-story living and dining rooms below. Floor to ceiling glass wraps the intermediate level, allowing views through the house to the wooded site beyond.
