Trott Residence

Located in the Quarton Lake neighborhood of Birmingham, this renovation and Pool House addition expands on a proud Georgian-style home. The elegant symmetry of the existing home, its brick and stone façades, and dramatic wood entablature associated with Palladio’s villas were the starting points for the home’s additions.

The family room was expanded and organized to engage the new pool area. Its cathedral ceiling creates a charming and comfortable interior space. The kitchen was reconfigured to correspond to the new family room space.

The new pool house is designed to anchor the entire composition of the residence. It creates a counterpoint to the main home with its continuous pergola and chimney.
