Design is Human
New life for a 120 year-old cigar factory.


Architecture: William Joseph Carpenter, FAIA, PhD, LEED® AP BD+C

Newnan is designed for a devout modernist couple in in a 120 year old Cigar Factory with masonry walls.

The new residence is built within the factory's existing frame and allows for dramatic light filled spaces and frames specific vignettes in the City. A three story light-well imbues the center of the house with a soft ambient light. At night it reverses to allow the water feature to reflect light into the house and connect it to the night sky. The Master terrace view frames the Historic Courthouse and offers panoramic views of the rooftops and trees beyond.
