Founded in 2007, MA! has evolved into Design is Human, Atlanta, a design event that promotes modern international design and culture. MA! has created a platform for cutting edge architects, interior designers and builders to showcase their work.
Nestled in old affluent neighborhood of Atlanta, a modern home has risen from the ashes. Ansley Park, dating back to 1904, was the first Atlanta suburban neighborhood designed for automobiles with its wide, winding roads rather than the grid pattern of normal streetcar suburbs of the time. Diverse in style and scale, the houses in the district represent a full range of eclectic and contemporary architecture.
Designed by principle Jordan Williams of Plexus R+D and the combined interior design endeavors of DKM Interiors & Plexus R+D, the Terrell-Bonafiglia home in Ansley Park was a breath of fresh air.
Interesting elements surfaced around every corner upon passing through the pivoting glass door. The central feature of the home could not be avoided as all eyes immediately skimmed the best point of view to begin the MA! Design is Human tour. The floor to ceiling windows granted a constant view of the inviting pool and surrounding woods from every angle in each room. An open tunnel fireplace created a unique structural connection between the living room and the dining room. The fabulous artwork amplified a point of convergence for each location. The entire home was a work of art in geometric patterns and open spaces.
While only the ninth MA! Design is Human event, I have seen the modern movement steadily advance. The MA! is bridging Atlanta with the future in the recognition of clean lines and minimalist interiors. We look forward to the continued advancement of this dynamic design.
