Greetings from in situ studio!

DHIC Person Street TownhousesWe are moving forward with the schematic design of the DHIC Person Street Townhouses! Our collaboration as design architects with DHIC, Inc. and Perry Cox Architect, the architect of record, has been very productive, and we are excited to be proposing a new housing model for downtown Raleigh - affordable, contemporary, multi-family housing. The current scheme maximizes square footage at a low cost, responds to defining characteristics of the historic overlay district, and creates a street presence balanced with repetition and variety. See more images of the design on our website.

Beyond the Office

We have been keeping busy and having fun in and out of work. Erin has spent the last several months working alongside nine fellow Raleigh Planning Commissioners and the City of Raleigh Planning staff to review and make recommendations for Raleigh's new draft Unified Development Ordinance (UDO). The recommendations will be presented to City Council on September 4th. Upon City Council approval, the UDO will replace the current Devlopment Code, with the goal of creating "Right Rules, Right Places" for our fast growing city. In her free time, Erin has enjoyed putting miles on her bike, cycling through the rural parts of southern Wake and other surrounding counties.

Matt's teaching semester has started at the College of Design. This semester's studio focuses on the five lenses of architectural design - orientation, program, enclosure, structure, and circulation. The studio is a Junior year lottery, so the topics of study and projects are original. The hard work has already begun!

Nicole leaves this weekend for the Venice Biennale! She is accompanying Matt Tomasulo to represent Walk Raleigh at the US Pavilion: Spontaneous Interventions. She also recently launched a blog, Intentionally Small, where she explores her interest in small spaces and simple living. She will research the subject by studying small accommodations near and far. 

Jeremy was a great addition to our office this summer! He will continue to work with us part-time as he returns to NCSU for his final, 5th year of architecture school. This weekend, his studio is taking a trip to see Frank Lloyd Wright's Falling Water! Jeremy is also a DJ for the NCSU radio station WKNC 88.1FMTune in Wednesdays 9-11am to hear Jeremy (AKA Spaceman Spiff) play some sweet jams.

Book of the MonthCarlo Scarpa Architect: Intervening with History focuses on the drawings and work of the Architect as related to his obsessive archaeological renovations of existing buildings in his home country, Italy. If you are unfamiliar with Scarpa's work, please take the time to study him. His career offers a profound commentary on the relationship between modernism and the greater historical continuum of architectural design.

Thanks for your continuing support! Please contact us if there is any way we can help you.
