Gouchoe-Hanas Modern Cabin
"We want a rustic house but with clean lines and modern touches." Sue and Mike
The "modern cabin" was designed for Sue Gouchoe and Mike Hanas, a professional couple and their two grown children. Sue and Mike currently live in San Francisco but are moving back to central NC in the distant future. For now it will be used as a vacation house and also a home base for their kids. They wanted both rustic and modern elements, which fits their lifestyle and also the deeply wooded site in central Orange County.
A variety of spaces are designed to provide for many different moods and types of gathering. A lofty living dining room connects on the second floor to a balcony overlook for the upstairs bedrooms. This provides both visual and social connection when it is desired.
The kitchen is also connected to the main space, but tucked away under the second floor on the north. Bright red tiles give warmth and joyful energy to the kitchen, making it pleasant for both cooking and gathering.
The living, dining, master bedroom and office/study all have south facing light and large windows to capture the view to the woods. South light is greatly treasured by our firm and we always aim to provide ample south light in our spaces.
This house is currently under construction by NewPhire Building.
