Windows & Doors
Generously scaled windows are an important means of interpreting lowcountry architectural precedents. Shutters and shading devices were used to guard against the hot summer sun, inclement weather, and gusting coastal winds. Doors are numerous and serve to lower the barrier between indoor and outdoor spaces.
Exteriors & Shades
Lowcountry siding includes horizontal wood boards, board-and-batten, painted brick, and tabby stucco. Trim is typically flat or exhibits a clean profile.
Foundations & Porches
Porches and balconies are designed as extensions of indoor rooms and provide space for outdoor living. They are truly the heart of the Airlie lifestyle. Foundations, including brick piers and pour-raised slabs, integrate seamlessly into the house and surrounding landscape.
