Fernwood Terrace

Greenville, SC

The renovation of Fernwood Terrace sought to reinvigorate this circa 1958 brick split-level residence to bring back a consistency of character that celebrates its mid-century modernist heritage.  Five decades of ad hoc alterations had resulted in a commingling of styles where numerous features competed for attention.

In the absence of clear evidence as to home’s original interior configuration, the owner and architect built upon a reductive, yet not minimalist, design palette influenced by the transplanted Northern California owner’s exposure to that region’s mid-century architectural vocabulary.

The home succeeded in its objective of achieving an “everyday modernism” – where clean lines and comfort strike a pleasant livable balance. The home’s internal activity centers were reconfigured from individual isolation into an interwoven series of spaces providing a vibrant setting for living, cooking and entertaining.
