DESIGN LAB The Lay Low Chattanooga, Tenn. ARCHITECT/BUILDER/INTERIOR DESIGNER: Heidi Hefferlin, AIA, LEED AP, and Craig Kronenberg, AIA, Hefferlin + Kronenberg Architects, Chattanooga, Tenn. CONTRACTOR: David Smith, David Smith Construction, Chattanooga PROJECT SIZE: 1,680 square feet SITE SIZE: .14 acre CONSTRUCTION COST: $77.30 a square foot PHOTOGRAPHY: Harlan Hambright KEY PRODUCTS WINDOWS AND DOORS: Kawneer TUBULAR SKYLIGHTS: Solatube CABINETRY: IKEA KITCHEN APPLIANCES: Whirlpool, Ikea FAUCETS: IKEA, American Standard LIGHTING/LIGHTING CONTROL: Cree, Lutron PAINTS AND STAINS: Sikkens, Sherwin-Williams Set back from the street about 50 feet and wrapped in the aged wood, the recessed porch is lively and inviting—especially when the string lights are aglow at night—but still private. "People use the porch constantly," says Heidi. "It's not very visible, which makes it feel comfortable. It faces the side of our townhouse across the street, our detached garage, and the garden between." The long-term plan is for the site to also accommodate another build- ing at the front and a pool in between. "We got that idea from Morocco and Spain." Even if the elders are not yet occupying the dwelling, the Lay Low is a fully functioning family affair. Heidi and Craig's son handles the online bookings, and they take turns stocking it with coffee, fruit, and oatmeal for paying or invited guests. Everyone is happy to see the Lay Low rise to new heights. And the firm, which does both traditional and modern work, is delight- ed to have another contemporary building to add to its portfolio. These are the good things that can happen when you write your own check. 44 RESIDENTIALDESIGNMAGA ZINE.COM VOL. 2, 2017
