This mountain modern zen house was designed by Living Stone Design + Build, perched on top of Elk Mountain with breathtaking views of the skyline of Asheville, North Carolina. For this project, the homeowners had a vision, “Hollywood Hills of Western NC.” Complimenting the natural views, the contemporary architecture opens over the city in the distance, evoking a wooded version of the LA neighborhood.
The homeowners’ wish list for their dwelling included a connection to the outdoors with copious amounts of natural light and a focus on biophilic design. Over a backdrop of clean lines and a minimalistic approach, the project team integrated several natural elements. Continue below to see the rest of this incredible respite…
The architects are the premier luxury green design firm in Asheville and were very focused on making this home as green as possible.

Natural design elements can be found throughout this residence. This entails wooden finishes, such as built-in beds, and nightstands, that appear to be floating in the bedrooms, the cedar closet, and natural finishes on the case goods.
This organic theme helps to create a harmonious flow throughout, to produce a home that is minimalistic and modern, but still warm and inviting.
