Happy summer from in situ studio!

New Project Announcement

We are very excited to be working with DHIC, Inc. as Design Architect for a ten-unit contemporary row house project on an urban site just southeast of downtown Raleigh! We are also looking forward to our collaboration with Perry Cox, AIA, who will be the Architect of Record. Thanks to Gregg Warren and Drew Robinson at DHIC for this incredible opportunity!

Bida Manda to open soon!

The opening of Bida Manda Laotian Restaurant and Bar is just around the corner! Installation of 6,000 pounds of natural sticks harvested from the NC mountains, woven together to form surfaces for walls and ceilings, began last week. Along with dozens of other friends of Restaurateurs Vansana and Vanvisa Nolintha, we enjoyed lending a hand to help create a one of a kind space in Raleigh. Thanks to contractor John Cooper and his team at Southeastern Properties, electrical engineer Greg Rice of Diversified Consulting Group, graphic designer Jaime Van Wart, and the many people at the City of Raleigh who helped make this project a reality!

To learn more about Bida Manda, visit their website or follow their Facebook page.

Book of the Month

Cube by David Morrow Guthrie is a documentation of students’ material investigations in the form of cubes. David’s goal when teaching students at Rice University’s School of Architecture is to “close the gap between conceptual speculation and material reality”. Lessons learned in exploration of forms with real materials are invaluable to architecture students as they grow into a profession centered around form as experienced through the senses and expressed through physical assembly. The “Cube” project is stated as follows:
 
2x4 Frame: Using mechanical connections, construct a wooden frame with outside dimensions of 16”x16”x16”. Materials List: 2x4s; mechanical fasteners; chemical fasteners are not permitted
 
2x4 Frame + Skin: Using only mechanical connections, construct a box with outside dimensions of 16”x16”x16”. Materials List: 2x4s; 5/8” gypsum board; ½” or ¾” plywood; tape; drywall mud; corner bead; mechanical fasteners; chemical fasteners are not permitted

Synthetic Solid: Using only two materials, construct a solid cube with outside dimensions of 16”x16”x16”. Materials List: anything but food
 
Have a look at some of the student work and feel free to try this at home!

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

Best.
