Raleigh, NC - 2012
Located on East Hargett Street, the Chasen Residence is in a hip and growing, yet historic, neighborhood several blocks east of downtown Raleigh. Representing a new house type in Raleigh, this house is affordable, small, modern and urban. The efficient plan confines the entries, stairs, hallway, kitchen, and half bath to one side of the house, opening up the rest of the space for living. The house has an efficient envelope and uses many sustainable strategies to collect and preserve energy.
