The T-House designed by Frederick + Frederick Architects and built by T.D. Builders is featured in the latest issue of Residential Design Magazine. Editor Claire Conroy wrote, “Although much new building in the area evokes the “Lowcountry” look without a thoughtful understanding of its practical aspects and pleasing proportions, several local firms are mining these antecedents in fresh, appealing ways. Frederick + Frederick is one of the best examples. Jane and Michael have a deep knowledge of the climate, sensibilities, and sensitivities of the place they call home and headquarters for the firm. They understand the traditions of the Lowcountry, and the subtle ways to honor and elevate them at the same time.”

The issue focuses on small houses. Conroy commented “A small house is like a poem. Each design choice must fit the rhythm perfectly. It’s often as much about editing out what’s not essential as it is about choosing what to include.”

Principal Jane Frederick said, “Our clients desired a retirement retreat that is modest in size yet feels gracious. We accomplished this by an open floor plan that is one room wide. The house spills outside with large doors and north facing windows. The house was slightly rotated on the pie shaped lot to take advantage of the long view to the NNE and a tidal view to the NW.”
