River Dwelling is a four bedroom, four bath contemporary modern vacation home in the North Georgia Mountains that sits on a quiet stretch of the Toccoa River, across from the Chattahoochee National Forest and a short drive from Blue Ridge, Georgia. Sitting high on its concrete pedestal, River Dwelling guests are treated to the spectacular surroundings of old growth pines, oaks, and the hypnotic rhythms of the river.
Eschewing the standard 'vernacular' of the 'authentic' log cabin, the design team looked to create a sublime visual dichotomy between the verdant and the man made. With a moveable wall and large expanses of glass, the lines are blurred from that which is outside - wild, and natural, and the inside - clean, and machined.
