Designed for a small, vacant infill lot on a busy thoroughfare of downtown Raleigh, the Tarboro Residence makes the most of its footprint with spaces which are simultaneously private and open. The house form is a reaction to the surrounding neighborhood that is mixed with residential and commercial buildings. Interior spaces, efficiently structured around a double-height living room with views to the backyard, flow seamlessly from public to private via simple plan arrangements and sectional changes. These spatial overlaps create intimate spaces without sacrificing their openness, making this compact city house a small haven of space, quiet, and light.
