"Huge Sense of Style"
"Arielle designed a house for us to age-in-place that accommodated my mobility issues.
She is a seasoned professional with an eye for detail second to none. She never left our side throughout the building process and was always quick to provide alternative suggestions along the way."
"I am amazed at how efficient [the plan] was! You literally put in everything we asked for, with no wasted space at all. I loved it, and still do."
"Added to her artistic and technical skills, Arielle was very easy to work with. We were impressed with her ability to clearly explain her recommendations while also listening carefully to our needs and wishes. She understood our hopes and then improved on them. We would be delighted to work with Arielle on any future project."
"Style with Substance"
TecHome Builder Magazine
"Arielle is a delight and was a pleasure to work with. Her knowledge, skills and expertise makes her a top-notch modern home designer."
Open, uncluttered spaces filled with natural light, panoramic views, and easy access to the outdoors... Clean lines, clear volumes, and sensual materials in their natural form... The knowledge that you’re conserving energy and natural resources and reducing costs...
That’s the kind of environment that just makes you feel good about life.
We place so much emphasis on how our homes and work spaces look, but how they make us feel is just as important, don’t you think? Our living environment should be warm and comfortable and nourish who we are. It should be our sanctuary that shields us from stress. And it should provide us with space for socializing with family and friends when we want to or retreating to privacy when we need to. Similarly, our workspaces should inspire us, energize us, and give us something restful to consider or contemplate (a beautiful view, perhaps) when we need to pause and think.
Everyone deserves good spaces derived from good ideas. Modern, energy-efficient design provides all the good ideas you can imagine, whether you’re building from the ground up or renovating an existing structure.
That’s why Arielle Condoret Schechter, Architect, PLLC, AIA, designs Modern, energy-efficient homes -- from her tiny, 400 to 1500-square-foot Micropolis® houses to luxurious 6000-square-foot family homes and compounds -- as well as other buildings of all types and sizes in the "Triangle" region (Chapel Hill, Durham, Raleigh, Cary, Carrboro and Pittsboro) and throughout North Carolina from the mountains to the coast. Prominent among her residential designs are are Net Zero/Net Positive Passive houses with data and certifications that prove their success at providing as much or more energy than the houses require, large or small.
Now that’s a good idea!
