Greetings from in situ studio!
This has been a busy and gratifying month. We have exciting announcements in this newsletter: two new nonresidential projects and two tours where you can see our work in person!
Thanks for your continuing support!
2012 Triangle Design Awards
We are honored that the Cox Sood Residence has been selected for the 2012 AIA Triangle Residential Tour. Mark your calendars for October 6! In the meantime, you can browse through photos of all the houses on this year's tour on the AIAT Tour Facebook Page and see an Architects + Artisans post about the Tour here.
The Goodman Residence, currently under construction by Anchorage Building Corporation, will be on this year's Green Home Tour May 5-6 and 12-13. Learn more about this tour through the Green Home Tour website and Green Home Tour Facebook Page.
We are thrilled to announce that we are designing a new restaurant for downtown Raleigh: Bida Manda Laotion Restaurant and Bar. We are currently in the permitting phase and plan to start construction in a month. Thanks to Vansana Nolintha for this amazing opportunity! It has been a pleasure collaborating with a client who is such a talented designer. We also look forward to coordinating graphics with Jaime Van Wart, who has already created a brilliant brand image for Bida Manda. Follow the progress of Raleigh's hottest new restaurant on the Bida Manda Facebook Page.
We are also ecstatic to be working with Church of the Holy Family on the design of a renovation and addition to their existing Parish Hall and other improvements to their beautiful campus. We first mentioned this project a year ago in a previous newsletter, and we can't wait to get this much anticpated project started!
Modernism at Risk
Triangle Modernist Houses has brought to Raleigh the internationally-known traveling photography exhibit, Modernism at Risk, featuring the photographs of Andrew Moore. The exhibit will be June 1-9 at the AIA Center for Architecture and Design, with special hosts each night. in situ studio will be hosting this event on Wednesday June 6, from 6-8:30pm. We hope to see you there!
Book of the Month
Envisioning Information by Edward R. Tufte examines how to visually and clearly represent complex information. There are no pie charts in this diagram-loaded book! As designers, visual communication is a critical part of what we do. This book has been a powerful tool.
Detail of the Month
This month we elected to focus on a few of the affordable modern details used at the Chasen Residence.
Working In Our Community
For the past month, YAF Triangle has been enjoying our office space for design charrettes for the latest YAF Have a Seat project, a bus shelter. It will be located across the street from the Raleigh City Farm. Thanks to the dedicated work of the entire team!
Last month, Erin and Matt gave a presentation about in situ studio and our work to the AIA Winston-Salem section. Also, Erin was on the jury for the City of Raleigh 2012 Environmental Awards. The awards were presented to this year's winners at the new Nature Research Center wing of the Museum of Natural Sciences.
At the end of April, Matt was featured on Raleigh Obscura, a local blog that features people who, "Make Raleigh an interesting and vibrant place to live." Read the post here.
Last month Nicole shared her 306 sqft studio apartment in our mini-series, "Where We Live." The apartment has since been selected as a contestant in Apartment Therapy's Small Cool Contest! See her submission for the "Teeny-Tiny" category here, and browse through all of this year's small home entries here.
Please contact us if there is anyway we can help you.
