We are thrilled to be on Architectural Digest online with a web exclusive home tour of the home of Jim and Susan Roland’s beautiful home in St. Francisville, Louisiana.

“The house needed to be a glass box—it had views all around. I wanted it to be almost like a louvered, modern riverboat sitting there on the water,” says Bobby McAlpine of the design he created with McALPINE Atlanta Head of Architecture, Lida Sease. 

A huge thank you to Amy Astley, AD Global Editorial Director and Editor in Chief; David Foxley, writer; and Simon Upton, photographer.  And of course, all the Rolands.

We hope you enjoy this web exclusive home tour!

    Stunning! So impressed. I often find that the industry does not quite appreciate the gargantuan effort that putting a beautiful, well appointed, and detailed house together is. I find it to be the hardest challenge in design. And I am so proud of all of you.
    Love to Greg and Bobby. Xoxo
