Most amazing architect i have ever seen! Raleigh NC

Lynda Strickland began working with our office in early 2003 to design a house in the trees where she could be with the birds and take advantage of the views across her site towards Crabtree Creek. Our design lifts the house off the ground on a series of sono-tube formed concrete piers and 8x8 wooden braces allowing minimal site disturbance. The house opens out to the north and the view with a storefront glass and steel faƧade stretching from the floor to the ceiling. Contrasting the window wall is the solid thick wall to the south which reaches 7’-0” above the finished floor upstairs wrapping the southwest and southeast corners.
