Carlyle Heights Condominiums is located to the east of Piedmont Park in Atlanta. The project consists of 6 existing 3-story flats buildings and a row of townhomes. These buildings were originally built in 1975 as an apartment complex but were later converted into condominiums. With aesthetic trends and colors taking on sleeker and more pure forms in 2010, the buildings were in need of an updated aesthetic. The goal was to re-image Carlyle Heights and give it a fresh, contemporary look that will age well in the future. TSW worked closely with the HOA board showing multiple iterations during the schematic design phase.
The renovation will include removing large raised roofs over exterior walkways, removing traditional trim work, replacing all railings, updating roof, and replacing windows and doors. The new design features large entry eyebrows and new architectural lighting that provides a more defined entry for each walkup. Furred out walls and composite wood accents give the previously flat façade more dimension and character. Updated doors and windows will assist with transforming the property into a more contemporary look.
