Sir Walter Raleigh Awards
This month, we received Sir Walter Raleigh Awards for two projects, Church on Morgan and The Ten at South Person, a collaboration with our friends at DHIC. The Sir Walter Raleigh Awards recognize significant contributions to the character, environment, and appearance of the City of Raleigh. This year, over 200 attendees celebrated the event at CAM Raleigh, honoring projects and service in the categories of Residential, Commercial, Historic Preservation/Rehabilitation, Public Facilities and Spaces, Landscape Design, Public Service, Community Impact, and Innovation. We are so full of thanks to our inspiring clients, collaborators, and community for making Raleigh a great place to work and live. Check out more details about the awards and see photos from the event here.
Early every September, Raleigh is abuzz with activity as the Hopscotch Music and Design festival takes over clubs, venues, and museums throughout downtown. This year, Matt attended Design Hopscotch, hearing illuminating talks by Tina Roth Eisenberg of Swiss Miss, Artist Ekene Ijoema, Larry Scarpa of Brooks + Scarpa, and Erin White of Community Food Lab. On the music side, highlights included The Powder Room, Quilt, Lambchop, Beach House, and a mind-blowing main stage show by Sylvan Esso. New to music venues this year was Church on Morgan, which hosted a slate of artists requiring a smaller, more reverent venue. The space supported the shows incredibly well, as reported here by Raleigh Agenda. Playing host to Hopscotch was a nice complement to other recent events held there like TEDx Raleigh, Innovate Raleigh, and City Camp NC. Props to the church for crafting a desirable atmosphere for community events beyond Sunday morning worship.
Four Square Renovation
We recently starting working with a family interested in expanding their early 20th century foursquare house near downtown Durham. The design respects the existing neighborhood by being quiet and using traditional materials in a concise, modern manner. A new glass wall between indoors and outdoors slides away, opening the house to the rear yard. We can't wait to see this project come to life - stay tuned!
