February 2012

Greetings from in situ studio!

This month we have updates on a few of our projects that are under construction and exciting news about our involvement in the community.

Thanks for your continuing support!

Project Updates

The Goodman Residence is now framed, giving form to the house and its spaces. We are really impressed with the work of Anchorage Building Corporation.

The Chasen Residence, built by Axiom Green Build, is progressing quickly. Windows, doors, siding, and spray foam insulation are installed, with sheetrock currently in progress. 

The Cox Sood Residence is complete! Thanks to Redfoot and Weber for a wonderful collaboration.

The Graham Pobiner Residence is also complete. Thanks to Ballard Construction for tackling this challenging renovation!

See other images of these projects on our website.

Where We Live

Last month we looked at Matt's house in East Raleigh. This month we look at Erin's house in the historic Mordecai neighborhood, only 2 miles from our studio. With a vegetable garden, fruit trees, a chicken coop, and bee hive, Erin's yard is just as interesting as her 1923 bungalow. Learn more about Erin's house on our website

Book of the Month

John Pawson: Plain Space by Alison Morris explores the work, processes, and inspirations of John Pawson, a contemporary minimalist architect. The book's large photographs portray his compositional use of mass, void, light, and material. You can stop by our office to flip through an autographed copy, signed by Mr. Pawson at hisNCSU School of Architecture lecture last year.

Detail of the Month

Last year we visited the Triangle YMCA's Camp Seafarer to prepare for a shortlist interview. While there, we discovered the bunk houses designed by Leif Valand. The walls of the houses were designed to open along their entire length to allow ventilation. Note also the use of local cypress and 4'-0" eave overhangs that have enabled the buildings to survive more than fifty years in a harsh environment!

Working in Our Community

NC State University's School of Architecture is bustling with activity. Matt and Don Kranbuehl of PBC+L are co-teaching a graduate studio titled "Architecture Design: Form." This week, their students had a final review of a short and intensive project where students investigated form and a basic program through formal relationships and transformative operations. Dennis Stallings, also of PBC+L, and Vinny Petrarca of Tonic were the jurors. Also, the school, its work, and the faculty were recently reviewed for reaccreditation, a process which occurs every 5-6 years. Visit the school's main gallery through 03 10 12 to see a show of faculty work mounted as part of the accreditation exhibit.

With the Raleigh Planning CommissionErin visited Charlotte to learn how the state's largest city approaches city planning. Also this month, Erin was a distinguished guest, alongside Kenneth Hobgood and Brian Shawcroft, at the Triangle Modernist Houses (TMH) event Appetite for Architecture, where people can reserve a seat at a table with local architects. The next TMH event is the Modernist House Tour in Durham. And, starting this year, Matt has taken Erin's place on the TMA Advisory Council.

Last month, Nicole helped Matt Tomasulo of CityFabric with Walk Raleigh, a guerilla way-finding project around downtown Raleigh. This month the project has grown to over 700 Facebook supporters, with local, national and international attention from WRALThe Atlantic: Cities, and The BBC, among many others. Support the project and walkability in Raleigh here!

Please contact us if there is anyway we can help you.
