A Modern Home in a South Carolina Marsh

By Dwell @dwell
In our July/August issue we profile a stunning modern home designed by architect James Choate of the Atlanta firm Surber Barber Choate & Hertlein. Located in a 5,000-acre nature preserve in South Carolina, the house is a rare instance of bold contemporary architecture in the region; as Choate puts it, "to put a contemporary house in the Lowcountry is a real shocker."

The house is set in a privately owned nature preserve halfway between Charleston and Savannah, on an isthmus between a marsh and a pond. "It's a cool site, very exotic," says architect James Choate. "It feels like a wildlife sanctuary." The resident, a man who works in commercial real estate, wanted a big space with glass walls to "honor the views."
