This modernist gem nestled in Raleigh’s Village District has quickly become an architectural landmark in the city’s thriving modernist scene.

An ambitious undertaking in its scale and scope, the residence has proven to be one of our most rewarding projects as we adapted our commercial work experience to manage the specific details a build of this type can present. The construction of this home was a natural progression for ACS as the methods for commercial building and modernist home building are quite connected. The primary materials include reinforced concrete, huge plated glass panels and steel framing— mediums in which we work extensively.

Steel columns were anchored into the ground providing a sturdy framework and expansive glass plates were reinforced and installed just as they would be in a commercial build, adding to the durability of the home. Designed with every effort to compliment the lot it is built on, the near floor to ceiling windows lining the back of the home provide stunning views of tree lines and sky. And the cantilever is a distinctive feature and makes a bold statement to those viewing the rear of the home.

Interior fixtures and materials were chosen carefully to seamlessly connect the industrial nature of the base materials with thoughtful finishes that have created a welcoming, inviting home. From the oversized front door to the meticulous landscaping, no detail has been overlooked in this special residence.

The August House was featured in the Triangle’s 2021 Parade of Homes.
