Hello Modern People,
Happy Thanksgiving to y'all. We hope you enjoy the beginning of this holiday season with your loved ones. We have much to be grateful for. We are thankful for all the opportunities this year has offered and for all the amazing clients and friends that have helped us grow.
The last couple of months have been fun. With many projects in the queue, we cannot wait to see what 2022 has in store for us.
We are hiring.
We are accepting applications for a part-time Junior Designer. If you or someone you know is looking to work for a different kind of architecture studio around the Triangle Area, look no further. Please send us your resume and portfolio here.
On the Boards: TR126 Residence
This 7,500 SF home is located in Merida, Mexico. The tropical climate allows blurring lines between the outside and inside spaces, making the whole composition seamless and abundant in natural light and natural ventilation. The private areas will be located on the second floor while all public areas will be found on the first floor opening towards the northeast or "the friar corner," which is where the best breeze is channeled as well as the best natural light. The funnel-like shape of the property leads to some serious challenges in order to array privacy and offer an even distribution to the structure and the architectural program. The result of this mass is an angular second-floor prism that faces northeast and the bottom prism remains parallel to the entry and service courtyard. The master suite is separated by a "bridge." This area is where the entrance and the stairs are located. Our project in Mexico is in collaboration with Architect Marisa Rios.
On the Boards: Twin Stream Residence
We are currently working on this beautiful design in Chapel Hill, NC. This renovation and addition features two volumes that will be liked by a plane (deck area). The angled volumes are in an angle to provide dynamism to the composition allowing lots of natural light and multiple ways to circulate through the space. See a video of the project here.
On the Boards: Wendell Barn
We are thrilled to be working on this reconstruction project for a Barn located in Wendell, NC. It’s too early to say where the design will lead but the essence of this agrarian structure is evident and we are extracting every single possible pattern and piece to bring it up to the 21st century with all honors. Stay tuned to learn more.
On the Boards: Ashburton Residence
Habanero architecture is working with Something Constructive to revive this precious ranch-style house and welcome it to the 21st century. Our aim is to create a better interior flow and give the exterior a more contemporary look without losing the mid-century essence that this home was born to display. We are very excited to work with people whose vision aligns with Habanero's philosophy.
Your support is greatly appreciated. Without you, Habanero could not be what we are today. THANK YOU! We have a very important announcement coming up soon. Stay tuned for our December two-year anniversary where we will be delivering this message.
Please consider sharing this newsletter with someone you think might want to know about us. Do not hesitate in contacting us. It is never too early to start a conversation. Let us know if we can be of any help. Make sure to follow us on Instagram, LinkedIn and Facebook to keep up with our latest news.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
