Scott was inspired by stone bridges on campus and some of the Craftsman details on nearby student cottages. He was charged
with designing a home that will eventually be transformed into Furman’s Center for Sustainability. Mark’s challenge was to
incorporate a more casual house in to the formal garden spaces on campus; he used a natural slope to step the house down into
a garden filled with native plants.
With plans taking shape, Linda McDougald and Adrienne Fulmer of Postcard from Paris began pulling together the interiors. With Green as the focus, evaluating which products were applicable made the interiors as challenging as getting the architecture correct. But, again, learning was part of the process. Furman enlisted Triangle Construction, with William Trammell and Fred Lusk leading the charge, to meet the approaching deadline. The Cliffs Cottage is intended to be the ultimate in Green design. We tried to use every product that filled the bill. Our goal is to give you tools to make your home more Green and sustainable. It all starts with education.
