The great Colonial Revival homes built around Atlanta in the early 20th century by Neel Reid and James Means inspired this residence for a young family. Staying true to this style, we incorporated white brick walls, a pedimented entry, stone trimwork and bold cornices. Traditional elements were adapted to California’s climate—French doors replaced windows at terraces and loggias. Typical of Colonial homes, the main hall acts as a focal point and provides access to the public and private rooms flanking either side.
