Minimally designed home with a warm aesthetic in North Carolina

Clark Court-In Situ Studio-01-1 Kindesign

Clark Court is a modern and Japanese style home for a young couple with a newborn, completed in 2013 by In Situ Studio, located in Raleigh, North Carolina. The residence is nestled hillside, under three mature oaks trees and oriented towards a pond. The architects were challenged to design an open house that would still allow privacy yet create intimate connections between the indoors and out. The clients work in the creative profession, so they had a sophisticated palette that helped to lead the design process, creating a successful collaboration. The main volume is comprised of three levels: a basement, ground level entry with kitchen and offices and upper level bedrooms and playroom. Large expanses of glass and skylights helps to capture views of the pond and tree canopy, emitting plenty of natural light into the interior spaces. A single level pavilion protrudes southwest from the main volume and out to the most secluded area of the property, under the three mature oaks. This space encompasses the living and dining area, sheltered by a wide, thin roof structure, which is supported by four narrow columns and the fireplace hearth. Sliding glass paneled walls opens this space up to the site. The finished result is a house form that is slender with thin edges that contradicts its considerable size.

We love all the glass in this home and clerestory windows that fills the home with light. Another beautiful feature is the living/dining pavilion…and the balcony off the master bedroom is not to hard to take, nothing like enjoy a coffee with a view first thing in the morning! What do you think of this space? Which is your favorite space?
