The elements of the natural context of North Carolina blend perfectly with this gable shaped home. Basiq Blaq is a beautiful black and tan house located in Raleigh.
The project’s goal is to introduce more affordable contemporary homes for Triangle Area housing. This modern ranch-style residence takes its shape from the archetypal gable form and helps to integrate itself into the neighborhood. Although the house presents a modern intervention, the project’s scale and proportional parameters integrate into its context.
Natural light and ventilation are passive goals for the project. A strong indoor-outdoor connection was sought by establishing views toward the wooded landscape and having a deck structure weave into the public area. North Carolina’s natural textures are represented in the simple black and tan palette of the facade.
