September 19, 2012 (Raleigh, NC) An award-winning modern house designed and built by Tonic Design + Tonic Construction of Raleigh will be featured on the 2012 AIA Triangle Residential Architecture Tour on October 6, and Tonic principals Vinny Petrarca and Katherine Hogan will participate in an associated panel discussion in Chapel Hill on September 25.
Tonics Crabill Modern house is one of only six residences selected for the Triangle Tour of Residential Architecture, featuring award-winning, architect-designed homes throughout the Triangle. Each residence received an AIA Triangle honor award for design excellence. An independent jury, chaired by Roberto De Leon of the Louisville-based firm De Leon and Primmer Architecture Workshop, selected the six houses from all others submitted for inclusion.
Crabill Modern is a simple, modern home on a wooded, five-acre property in Hillsborough, NC. It was designed to be a unique live/work house that inspire creativity and provides interesting spatial overlaps, said Vinny Petrarca.Our clients also wanted it to be constructed in a simple and cost-effective way.
To reflect the rural setting, Petrarca specified simple, inexpensive materials and references to regional agricultural structures rendered in a modern architecture composition. Recalling old farm sheds, the houses skewed cubic form is clad in solid and perforated COR-TEN®, a steel alloy developed to eliminate the need for painting. The steel forms a stable rust-like appearance when exposed to the weather.
Before the tour, on Tuesday, September 25, Petraca and Hogan will participate in an AIA Triangle-sponsored panel discussion about the houses on the tour. Moderated by Anna Wu, FAIA, the discussion will be held from 7-8:30 p.m. in Flyleaf Books in Chapel Hill (752 Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard).
