tonic design: crabill modern residence | Inspired By Design |

american firm tonic design has finished the 'crabill modern,' a residence in the middle of a clearing in the surrounding five-acre lushforest property near hillsborough, north carolina. the family wanted a dwelling sensitive to the natural ecosystem, that encouragedcreativity and provided a comfortable and interesting space to live. taking cues from the barn shed typology, the contemporaryreinterpretation skews the floor plan, with perforated and solid corten panels fulfill the purpose of shading, screening and protectingfrom the natural elements without the need for further maintenance.

the first floor contains the entry, kitchen, living room, music/studio space and two decks. the upper level has the private bedrooms
and a loft. oak flooring adds a warmth to the interior surfaces, filled with natural light from the surrounding woodland. the dwelling
was built for 155$ per square foot due to the design/build process and the availability of local materials. the national wildlife
federation has also certified the house as a natural habitat.
