The architecture of the homes was created by Quirk Designs, a neighborhood firm whose principal lives a block away. The genesis for this project came from a visit to Montgomery Alabama, to visit the site of striking mixed-use project by noted architecture firm, McAlpine. Taking this inspiration, and finding a hilltop setting that was once referred to as Montgomery Hill, we had the foundation upon which our project was conceived.
From here, taking a cue from the tudor and craftsman vernacular of the neighborhood, the buildings lean traditional with all-brick exteriors, romantic wing walls, cedar headers, and dominant masonry chimneys. Yet, the stark window casings, rooftop patios, and vertical structure of the homes relates to the modern, urban setting that has sprung up around the old neighborhood. A well landscaped arrangement of courtyards and a cobblestone-like paved entry complete the aesthetic.
