Museum of Life and Science in Durham, North Carolina by in situ studio

Wednesday, May 16th, 2018

Article source: in situ studio 

The woodland classroom building is located in a forest on the south side of the Museum’s campus. The building is a flexible space for science learning that blends indoor space with the surrounding natural environment. The stand-alone restroom building is located on the north side of the Museum’s campus, within a new outdoor exhibition area called Hideaway Woods, just up the trail from a Patrick Dougherty sculpture. We worked with the Museum of Life and Science to master plan these portions of their expanding campus and locate these small structures to minimize disturbance to the surrounding environs and, in the case of the woodland classroom, maximize connections with the natural environment.

Medlin Residence in Raleigh, North Carolina by in situ studio

Saturday, June 18th, 2016

Article source: in situ studio

Our clients wanted a four-bedroom house with large public spaces that would open onto a constrained suburban site near downtown Raleigh. The existing site was long north to south and sloped down to the street on the north side. A stream bisected the site near the street, and the associated floodplain precluded construction on the front half of the property. A dramatic slope at the rear of the site prevented locating the house far back on the property. Our response to these constraints was a compact, two-story “L” that creates an private outdoor space between the house and the hillside.

The Corbett Residence in Bahama, North Carolina by in situ studio

Friday, June 17th, 2016

Article source: in situ studio

The Corbett Residence is on a wooded site, down a winding drive. The drive is thin and meanders between trees to protect the house from view. The house is a low black box that strikes a line across the slope, mimicking the horizon. The house is at the edge of a hill, above a creek, and is oriented to admit light and views of the forest. At the east end of the house, the master bedroom looks out to a large red oak and fern glade. Our clients, who are restrained, contributed beautiful ideas and challenged us to express necessity.

Pavilion House in Portland, Oregon by Waechter Architecture

Thursday, July 9th, 2015

Article source: Waechter Architecture

Our clients wanted a glass house.  The difficulty was that they wanted this house placed on a visually exposed 50’ x 100’ city lot that they owned in NE Portland.  This posed the challenge of designing a glass house with privacy.  Our solution was to design a pavilion-like structure in which the body of the house is supported by 4 ten-foot tall “legs.”  The legs are placed strategically to block unwanted views and provide privacy.

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.

Levin Residence in Arizona by Ibarra Rosano Design Architects

Saturday, February 16th, 2013

Article source: Ibarra Rosano Design Architects

Three simple volumes hover above the desert, responding to the challenges of a sloping site and to an ethic of building with minimal disruption to the natural environment. The available buildable area was bifurcated by a minor drainage-way, which inspired the architects to leave the cars behind and link the parking area to the main house by a bridge that allows rainwater and wildlife to flow beneath it.

Stoneridge in Chapel Hill, North Carolina by In situ studio

Tuesday, February 12th, 2013

Article source: 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.

Tovin Studios in New York by sebastianquinn (designed with Rhino and PowerCADD)

Article source: sebastianquinn

70 South Franklin Street in Nyack, New York is the studio and gallery space for furniture designer Blake Tovin. Conceived as an intervention, the structure of Tovin Studios is a former warehouse. The project investigates economy of means, materiality, natural lighting and sustainable construction techniques. The facade is clad in weathering steel. Four major “light scoop” sky lights deliver day light and are a passive solar heating system. The project is currently awaiting consulting with energy modeling from NYSERDA.
