Perdue Place, built in an urban forest.

Perdue Place

Architecture: Rusafova Markulis Architects

Located in a West Asheville neighborhood, Purdue Place takes full advantage of the beautiful site while maintaining the home's privacy.

Sq Ft: 1450

All the design decision we made along the way were a direct response to site constraints - the home's footprint is restrained by the site's set backs and the windows are carefully placed to frame views of the beautiful city forest.

Perdue Place is elevated to protect the sites trees.

Inside, the home feels like a tree house as the trees around it are just a foot away and the large windows create a powerful connection between exterior and interior. Outside, the rich patina of the corten steel veneer panels blends the house into the lush green of the trees.
