From the architect. The Chasen Residence is in a hip and growing, yet historic, neighborhood several blocks east of downtown Raleigh. Representing a new house type in Raleigh, this house is affordable, small, modern and urban. The efficient plan confines the entries, stairs, hallway, kitchen, and half bath to one side of the house, opening up the rest of the space for living.

The house has an efficient envelope and uses several sustainable strategies to collect and preserve energy. The upper floor is pushed towards the back of the lot to create a double-height living space at the street and a screened porch fronting the back yard. Total construction cost was $117 per square foot.
