ABOUT THE SHOWHOUSE
Atlanta magazine and Atlanta Magazine’s HOME are excited to partner with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra to present the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Designer Showhouse, opening to the public in early 2020. Harrison Design’s Modern Studio Director, Robert Tretsch III, has created an architectural masterpiece, inspired by a 1945 Atlanta Youth Symphony performance. The dramatic arc of compositions by Rossini and Schubert were his muse, as the home’s understated exterior belies its striking, light-filled design. ADCO Construction brings this contemporary design to Buckhead, with the use of modern-styled brick, stucco, concrete, and steel. Many of the finest interior designers in Atlanta will come together to create an interior vision to complement the contemporary architecture. The distinguished design team consists of top talent including Matthew Quinn of Design Galleria, Bill Peace of Peace Design, and Barbara Westbrook—to name a few.
