LOCATION: MYERS PARK – CHARLOTTE, NC
SIZE: 2,965 sf (total under roof 4,000 sf)
AWARDS: NAMED CHARLOTTE NC’s
2019 HOUSE OF THE YEAR
This 4,000 sf residence, in Myers Park, was completed in May 2019. The home is located on an infill site on one of Charlotte’s commercial boulevards, Providence Road; although the rear portion of the lot falls within the neighboring Hermitage Court Historic District’s boundaries. Design elements, such as the two-story front porch, learn from the site’s historic neighbors. The use of Chicago brick and poured concrete will stand the test of time and lend a stately presence along Providence Road.
The massing was broken into separate volumes with different setbacks, so as to 1) make the building appear smaller in size 2) create a strong sense of vertical expression and 3) bring natural light deep into the space. This also allowed us to incorporate two interiorized courtyards, one featuring a small plunge pool.
