Location: Charlotte, North Carolina
Project size: 4,000 square feet
Program: The home, on an infill site on one of Charlotte’s main commercial boulevards, is located within the Hermitage Court Historic District.
Solution: Design elements, such as the two-story front porch, nod to the site’s historic neighbors. To break down the house’s scale, its massing was broken into separate volumes with differing setbacks. This also creates a strong sense of verticality, and allows for natural light to reach deep into the interiors. The building’s form permitted the architects to carve out two inner courtyards, one featuring a small plunge pool.
Construction and materials: The building's structure is wood; brick cladding and poured concrete lend the house a stately presence on its street. Bronze-coated aluminum louvers shield the porches of the front façade.
