Given the simple directive to design a contemporary house with elements of Lowcountry vernacular, architect Chris Schmitt has created a fascinating compound consisting of a main residence, a guest house, woodworking shop/ photography dark room and a separate office. The Guest house was completed in 1998, the other buildings followed, culminating with construction of the main residence in 2004.
The award winning main residence is extraordinary not only for its innovative design, but also for the quality of materials and craftsmanship. Perfectly proportioned details, balance and scale all create a home with enormous visual appeal.
The home's great room features high ceilings, exposed trusses and tall windows which flood the room with light. The kitchen, dining room and den / office all have views of Rice Gate Pond. Most of the rooms have direct access to exterior decks and an additional 1,000 square feet of outdoor living space. A spacious ground floor master bedroom has access to a private outdoor spa and two beautifully appointed bedrooms are located on the second floor.
The guest house with its distinctive inverted roof has floor to ceiling glass in the living room and wonderful views of the surrounding forest. A small kitchen and dining area and two bedrooms and baths make this a private yet inviting place for visitors.
Not to be overlooked is an exceptional landscape plan created by the highly regarded landscape architect Thomas Angel who artfully combines formal landscaping with the natural beauty of Spring Island.
