2016 Residences

Hermitage Residence- exterior

Hermitage ResidenceSzostak Design

A contemporary, 4,700 square foot residence accommodates the needs of a growing family within a reposed, sunlight-filled environment, respectfully attuned to the historic neighborhood in which it is sited. Clad in painted masonry, architectural stucco and zinc exterior paneling, the home is a composition of carefully proportioned volumes, designed with an owner-directed emphasis for graceful accommodation, simplicity and an immediate connection to house’s enveloping natural environment.

Hillcrest House - roof

Hillcrest House Alphin Design Build

This new single-family residence is sited in one of Raleigh’s first street-car ‘suburbs’ established in the mid-1920’s, a time of progressive cultural expansion in the south. The design intentionally avoids mimicking neighboring architecture, identifying instead with the founding spirit of place. The home’s form is an outgrowth of the neighborhood’s cultural roots: responsive to nature, conducive to modern living and individually expressive.

The Ten at South PersonIn Situ Studio

The project, designed for a vacant downtown site, is a new housing format for Raleigh – modern, affordable, and possessing row house DNA. The design maximizes square footage at low cost, builds from defining characteristics of a surrounding historic district, and creates a streetscape via stoops, play of materials and relief on the street facade. Units sold in six days at a price that was the least expensive per-square-foot housing offered in downtown. Despite modern form, the complex is nestled comfortably within the neighborhood.
