This 1960s home has been renovated by Birmingham-based architecture firm Design Initiative, which sought to return the building’s original charm, while modernising its interiors and improving circulation. Mountain Brook Residence was originally designed by Fritz Woehle, the first architect from Alabama to be awarded the title of Fellow by the American Institute of Architects (AIA)
