This modern residence by In Situ Studio is a 2012 project located in Raleigh, North Carolina, USA.
It is a property that was designed to be both sustainable and inexpensive.
Chasen Residence by In Situ Studio:
“The Chasen Residence is in a hip and growing, yet historic, neighborhood numerous blocks east of downtown Raleigh.
Representing a new house variety in Raleigh, this property is reasonably priced, small, contemporary and urban. The effective program confines the entries, stairs, hallway, kitchen, and half bath to 1 side of the property, opening up the rest of the space for living.
The house has an effective envelope and utilizes many sustainable approaches to gather and preserve energy.
The upper floor is pushed towards the back of the lot to produce a double-height living space at the street and a screened porch fronting the back yard. Total building expense was $117 per square foot.”
