Located in the Inman Park / Old Fourth Ward neighborhood of Atlanta, adjacent to the Beltline and in walking distance from Krog Street Market, Haus Gables is a newly built 2,220-square-foot home designed by Atlanta and Boston-based designer Jennifer Bonner, director of MALL.
This contemporary masterpiece features soaring ceilings, an open plan interior, spacious rooms and connected views to the surrounding landscape. The spacious 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom home is one of only two residences in the country made of cross-laminated timber (CLT), an exceptionally strong wood material produced by gluing together layers of lumber that alternate in direction.
The house itself takes its form from a cluster of six gable roofs, in which rooms, catwalks and double height spaces in the interior are aligned to ridges and valleys in the roof above, such that the floorplan is a result of the roof. Designated exterior spaces, including a 130 square-foot terrace is integrated into the volume of the house and a deck extending to the backyard connect the interior with the surrounding landscape.
The house also features a series of faux-finishes that clad the exterior and parts of the interior in opposition to expectations. Black terrazzo is not poured-in-place and polished, but applied as a thin tile, while oriented strand board (OSB) is replaced by ceramic tiles in the image of OSB. The marble finishes in the bedroom and adjacent bathroom are made of unlikely materials, including vinyl and cartoonish drawings, rather than the oft-desired, real, Italian marble. On the exterior, two sides of the house are covered in faux-bricks made of stucco.
The house is outfitted with Bosch and Wolf appliances; and Moen, Kohler and American Standard fixtures throughout the three-story residence. A curated selection of iconic designs populate the interior and include furniture and sculptures designed by George Nelson, Ettore Sottsass, Charles and Ray Eames, Annie Hieronimus, Patricia Urquiola, Aino Aalto, Laurel Consuelo Broughton, Hella Jongerius, among others.
Neighborhood Description: Inman Park
Today, the fashionable Inman Park is one of the most popular intown neighborhoods. Suffering much devastation as the site of the notorious Civil War Battle of Atlanta, Inman Park as we know it dates back to the late 1800s as Atlanta’s first planned suburb, where the wealthy could enjoy more green space and easy connectivity to the city via Atlanta’s first electric streetcar. After slipping into a decline with more modern times, Inman Park has enjoyed a revitalization and resurgence beginning in the later half of the 20th century. Listed on the National Registry of Historic places, Inman Park is known for stately homes and broad quiet streets. Much of the area’s uniquely Victorian architecture has been beautifully restored, giving Inman Park an austere, somber feel. While the serenity and quietude prevails throughout much of the neighborhood, Inman Park is also home to a bustling shopping, dining and entertainment district, with local favorites such as Bar Taco, Hampton + Hudson, and The Vortex. Culturally diverse, the eclectic Little Five Points offers a wide variety of night-life, while many family friendly restaurants surround the park itself, where you will find a gorgeous neighborhood pool. Additionally, a repurposed warehouse is home to Krog Street Market featuring local stores and a central food hall with everything from vegan sandwiches to organic steaks. Easily one of the most walkable neighborhoods in the city, Inman Park offers easy access to the BeltLine, Atlanta’s greenway, planned to connect all the intown neighborhoods via an abandoned railway; here you will find urban art and a network of paths and trails. More local street art adorns every surface of Krog Street Tunnel, adding bright colors and murals to the quaint Victorian neighborhood. A meld of modern and historic, art and culture, Inman Park has a unique flair that can be captured within the Parade of Homes and Art Festival, an annual event to see and experience everything the neighborhood has to offer—or at least as much as you can fit in a weekend!
