Turkel Design was selected to design the first home for the Ridges at Paris Mountain, an 18 lot mountain retreat with fantastic views of the Park Mountain State Park. Read about The Ridges at Paris Mountain.
In Sweet Repose, Bill Malloy and Joel Turkel combined to create a space designed in harmony with large stands of old growth hardwoods that have occupied the terrain for hundreds of years. Every facet of the home has been designed with purpose and attention to detail, resulting in an unprecedented mountain community that can be enjoyed for generations to come.

It is in those uniquely Southern features, the blend of indoor and outdoor lifestyle, contrasted with the natural Blue Ridge Mountain light, that Bill Malloy wanted the space to reflect. Sweet Repose beckons you to spread out, to look out. South Carolina’s openness lends itself to what you see in the design. Perhaps most obvious, is a proclivity toward new things, the lack of strong tradition allows for the introduction of bold new ideas.
Joel and the team at Turkel Designs, approached the landscape design as an integral part of Sweet Repose, blending the home and site into an expression of Bill Malloy’s singular vision. The result was a landscape design that not only complements the home but also strengthens the overall design concept.
The organic and modern approach to the landscape design at Sweet Repose is signature minimalist in style, complete with well-edited plants, and blocks of color and textures. Whenever possible, Bill Malloy pushed the team to incorporate native plants and varieties into the projects. The result fills the home with with the light and ambiance of the surrounding world, blurring the boundaries between indoor and outdoor areas.

Bill Malloy and team created a home that incorporates quintessential South Carolina design that is both aesthetically pleasing and environmentally honest. A palette of FSC sustainably harvested American walnut, cork, plaster, and stone were used in the production to give the interior a warm tactile feel. The humid subtropical climate of Greenville allowed Bill Malloy to incorporate the natural cross ventilation year round, through high operable windows in the stairwell, front, and rear of the building. Every opportunity was afforded to utilize honest products that pay homage to the land.
