It’s Pig Roast Week!

We’re feeling all the feels over here in Newbern this week. It’s Pig Roast week!!! Come out THIS SATURDAY and help us celebrate 25 YEARS IN HALE!!! We’re incredibly proud and truly honored to still be here working with this extraordinary community. Thanks to Sambo Mockbee and D.K. Ruth for having the vision to make this happen and Andrew Freear for continuing to be our champion. Our Rural Studio family is larger and stronger than ever. #WarEagle 

Week 69

East facing elevation shows 18′ screens that slip past balcony datum line to separate the two elements. We are also working through options for the “porch” on the Southern portion of the site, we are interested in using lights or a dropped ceiling to lower the scale.

We finally modeled our most recent design! This past week we shifted from plans, sections and SketchUp to a physical model, so we could charette through the tree and furniture placement.

Stepping out of the waiting room looking towards the active space and porch.

Part of figuring out the tree layout is understanding how it shapes the north end, as another entrance to the courtyard as well as what it gives back to the street since it is the most public area of the design. 

Stay tuned as we work through the different options for the railing (not featured in model at the moment) and its interaction with the screens!
