CARRBORO HOUSE in North Carolina by CUBE design + research

Saturday, February 1st, 2014

Article source: CUBE design + research

The client asked us to create a home that was modern, green, affordable, and designed for aging. The property is a beautifully wooded half-acre lot in Carrboro. We responded with single-level living that builds in accessibility clearances and easily adapted amenities for aging. To keep the home affordable, we kept the plan compact and simplified the details. The form and planning of the house shift to mediate privacy from neighbors and views of nature at every turn.

United Therapeutics Field House in Raleigh, North Carolina by Frank Harmon Architect PA

Thursday, November 14th, 2013

Article source: Frank Harmon Architect PA

United Therapeutics, a pharmaceutical company in North Carolina’s Research Triangle Park, needed a 5136-square-foot field house for an Olympic-sized soccer field built for employees and their families. The structure needed to provide changing areas, showers, and restrooms for two teams of 10 to 12 people, as well as a gathering area with a fireplace. The structure also had to accommodate necessary support spaces—maintenance/storage room, mechanical/electrical rooms—and each changing room needed a janitor’s closet.

Health & Human Sciences Building in Cullowhee, North Carolina by Clark Nexsen

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013

Article source: Clark Nexsen

WCU’s Health & Human Science Building is the first facility constructed as a part of the University’s Millennial Initiative, setting both aesthetic and planning directions for the new 344-acre campus. The facility provides state-of-the-art learning environments for five departments and nine disciplines within the College. Nested into the mountainside, without immediate built context or relationship to the existing campus, the design is a direct response to both site and program.

Strickland-Ferris Residence in Raleigh, North Carolina by Frank Harmon Architect PA

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

Article source: Frank Harmon Architect PA

The house was designed primarily for one person who had three specific requirements: (1) she wanted “something dramatic;” (2) She wanted to feel “as if I’m living in the trees;” and (3) she wanted the house to be utterly devoid of unnecessary ornamentation to the point that she could see the marks of construction, from exposed bolts to the “unfinished” ceiling structure.

Stoneridge in Chapel Hill, North Carolina by In situ studio

Our clients approached us to substantially renovate and make an addition to an existing Deck House north of Chapel Hill. The original house was a 1986 replica of a sixties-era Deck House. When our clients approached us, they had not yet purchased the property. Our first effort was to help them imagine the potential of improving the house. After a successful feasibility study, they purchased the home in December 2010.

The Chasen Residence is in a hip and growing, yet historic, neighborhood several blocks east of downtown Raleigh. Representing a new house type in Raleigh, this house is affordable, small, modern and urban. The efficient plan confines the entries, stairs, hallway, kitchen, and half bath to one side of the house, opening up the rest of the space for living.

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

Article source: Tonic Design + Tonic Construction

The pavilion is an outdoor classroom and component of the North Carolina Museum of Art’s Sculpture Park. The structure is wrapped in varying widths of horizontal, perforated metal bands, which offer experiences that change with the seasons, the light, and the vantage point of the viewer .The pavilion’s metallic “skin” reflects its natural surroundings by taking on the colors of the grass and sky or, at times, completely disappearing into a moire pattern of light and shadow.
