Chiles Residence in Raleigh, NC by Tonic Design + Tonic Construction

Friday, October 19th, 2012

Article source: Tonic Design + Tonic Construction

The modern, 3500-square-foot house was designed and built for art collectors John and Molly Chiles. It was constructed on the bones of an old modern, steel-framed and wood-paneled house overlooking Crabtree Creek in Raleigh, NC, that was abandoned in the 1960s.The original house was in terrible shape: Its wood walls and floors, camouflaged by kudzu and ivy, had rotted. Yet the “bones” were still strong in concept, and the couple saw through the clutter. They were confidant that the neglected remains could form the basis for a dramatic new house that would pay homage to mid-20th century modern design.

Shade Pergolas and an Outdoor Pavilion for performance and community gathering are designed for an urban park in North Carolina. The form and structure reference the heritage of the local textile industry – its patterned fabric and the motion of the textile loom equipment. Purple heart wood, painted steel, copper sheet metal, brick, granite, and silicon bronze donor plaques are assembled with standard details in unique combinations to create a tailored pattern and image bound to its place.
