Located in a wooded site in North Carolina we can find Trull Residence, a mid-century inspired house that became home to a local family.
Trull Residence is the result of extensive work commissioned to architecture firm In Situ Studio. The owners of this amazing home wanted to have a space of their own that was in touch with the outdoors. The result was a low-lying contemporary home that reaches for inspiration in the mid-century architecture style, and you’ll quickly see why. Let’s take a look.
When they first talked to In Situ Studio, the couple who now owns the house was looking for a one-storey residence that was spacious and reached to the outdoors. To achieve that, they found the perfect place to build the house: Cary, a small suburban town located outside North Carolina’s state capital Raleigh. In Cary, they found a wooded property with a small adjacent pound that seemed to tick all the must haves of the owners wish list.
Once they had found the perfect spot, the architecture firm went on to build a single-storey, 3,097-square-foot dwelling that stretches across the sloping site. Using concrete blocks and warm-toned wood, In Situ Studio built an amazing façade that stretches on in the shape of an L.
Inside, there are two wings connected by a single corridor. You would find the bedrooms on the north wing, where the façade is higher and allows for more privacy. On the southern wing, there is a more common area with an open plan kitchen, dining area, as well as living room. The dining room decor was also inspired by the mid-century modern style, with colored chairs that liven up the space.
“The grounded bedroom volume, exposed foundation walls, and site walls are clad or formed with a burnished CMU, making them appear very solid,” the architects told Dezeen.
On the southern wing there are giant glass doors that open onto a grassy yard and a wrap-around terrace, creating the perfect meeting between indoors and outdoors, much like we are used to see in mid-century modern homes.
