THE SUTTON BUCKHEAD: A New Lease on Luxury in Atlanta

 

A High End Modern Light Filled Kitchen Family and Dining Room

 

Tasked with creating a landmark new apartment building in Atlanta’s Buckhead Village, the master architects at Reese Vanderbilt & Associates faced a very high bar for excellence. As the crowning jewel in the undeniably tony retail area, elegance, refinement, and luxury would be requisite to The Sutton aesthetic. The Reese Vanderbilt team drew inspiration from the classic elements of Buckhead’s architecture to ensure the building’s contextual appropriation. In pairing the area’s timeless style with the firm’s approach to modernity, the now-complete 21-story residential tower celebrates urban living at its finest. At Buckhead’s most stylish new address, gorgeous was built from the ground up.

Dazzling Apartments By Design

Set within one of Atlanta’s most-walkable neighborhoods, The Sutton makes a bold statement to anybody strolling past. The building’s “jewel box” design and the light neutrals of the exterior color palate stand out beautifully against the city’s skyline. Great, sweeping windows reflect the bright blues and occasional passing clouds in the Georgian sky and dark bronze window frames hint at the elegant finishes and refined touches to be found in abundance within.

A classic porte-cochère welcomes residents and guests at street level. An element rarely found in contemporary apartment buildings, the porte-cochère exemplifies the classic take on luxury that defines The Sutton.

Once inside, an open, two-story lobby introduces the airy ambiance found throughout the building. Distinguished by stately tiling, the lobby features a fireplace and serves as a warm space for gathering with friends before embarking on a night of adventure in the city.
With its commitment to bringing condo-style amenities to each of its residents, The Sutton enlisted Barrett Design to develop the buildings offerings. Experience in creating multifamily residential, retail, wellness, nightclubs and entertainment venues bolster the firm’s reputation for high-end interiors. A 2,500 square foot fitness center boasting Peloton bikes and a Smith machine establishes The Sutton’s dedication to health and wellness for residents. While a bounty of local gyms can be found within walking distance of the high-rise, the ease of the well- equipped, onsite facility proves irresistible to fitness devotees.
