March 2019

Greetings from in situ studio! Spring has sprung in our fair city, and we are very excited about several projects that will be breaking ground in the warmer months. Check out what else we've been up to below!

 

SE Regional Park


We are thrilled to be working with Surface 678 on an exciting Wake County Parks & Recreation project! Master planning is underway, and we are looking forward to designing a park center and other park structures that respond to the mostly wooded and partially agricultural site located along Highway 42 in southeast Wake County. Stay tuned for more design details over the next few months!

 

Our State Tour

The Stimmel House was recently featured on a tour jointly sponsored by North Carolina Modernist Houses and Our State Magazine. Over one-hundred people came to the house on a gorgeous day, heard a brief presentation, and then explored the house inside and out. Thanks to our wonderful clients, Justin and Elena, for opening their home and to NCMH and the magazine for their support of modern architecture. We have two houses featured on the upcoming  April 13th NCMH Modapalooza Tour and plan to photograph Stimmel and four other houses later this spring with Keith Isaacs. Stay tuned!

 

Washington Elementary

Earlier this month, the office visited Washington GT Magnet Elementary to work with their first graders as they learn about architecture and 3D shapes.  After reading "Iggy Peck, Architect”, we helped student teams design and build structures using 3D Shapes. Popular designs included the PNC Tower, castles, and houses! Matt and Zach also made a quick pit stop to help Washington 3rd graders with their NC Science Olympiad pasta tower competition, designing the most structurally efficient towers using only pasta and glue. Special thanks to Mrs. Hoffman and the first grade team for opening their classrooms to us. We love sharing about what we do!

Rose Bell

Progress continues on our four story residential project in Charlotte, NC. Sited on a hill facing uptown, this home takes advantage of some of the best views in the city of the entire skyline. A fourth level roof deck offers the most privileged views, but a pool and hot tub at the patio level provide a perfect place to relax and take in the pink and orange hues of the sun setting against the city. Thanks to Kingswood Homes - we’re excited to see this one move toward completion!

  

Walters Residence

We are nearly dried in at the Walters Addition! Located in a tight-knit neighborhood near NCSU, this addition is a quiet and simple response to an eclectic neighborhood context. The back of the property abuts future park land, and the front of the property slopes toward Downtown Raleigh, which is just visible through the trees from the second floor porch. Original Space has done a great job on this one so far, and we’re excited to see David Wehrenberg begin work begin on the interior stair.

 

Book of the Month

Our book of the month is the newly released EL croquis 198, featuring the work of the American firm, Johnston Marklee. Founded in 1998 in Los Angeles by Sharon Johnston and Mark Lee, the firm has blazed a trail of inventive work across a range of building types. Their architecture is distinguished by a simplicity of form, beautifully contoured interior spaces, masterful play of light, and a very direct approach to problem solving. The recently completed Menil Drawing Institute is an office favorite, as is The View House. We’re happy to have added this book to our growing library!

Please contact us if there is any way we can help you. 

Best.
