Inspired by historic and modern precedents, and recalling the work of Hugh Newell Jacobsen, the aptly named Three Chimney House designed by TW Ryan Architecture strives for "timeless yet contemporary voice for Southern architecture in America."

It sits along the edge of the woods, with its main programs divided and rotated into separate wings that frame scenic views from each room. The central structure of the house begins from the driveway as a low entry hall clad in a light-colored brick with clear influence from the modernist style. A glass gallery serve to link the library and anchor the entry with the rest of the house. The warmth of the exterior continues toward the interior with the unfolding the circulation of the main hall and occupants begin to interact with the three distinctive chimneys, animating their understanding of the architecture.

'I think the siting is really beautiful—the idea of the historical reference to the chimneys, and how that is a marker for homes in the landscape. The architects worked with the existing vernacular well, but in a modern way.' — Amy Yang
