A speculative real estate development, the residence at 965 S. Race Street is a departure from the typical, market-driven, square-feet-for-dollars development project. Conceived on the simple premise that good design moves real estate, 965 combines exceptional craftsmanship with authentic materials to produce one-of-a-kind value in a saturated real estate market. Design is desirable. Design sells.
The juxtaposition of raw and natural materials against refined, manufactured products and polished finishes creates a tension that engages 965’s inhabitants with a smart and self-aware, but warm and livable environment. The final design is a compelling, dynamic composition of traditional forms that pays homage to historic neighborhood architecture while still achieving a singular, contemporary identity.
