Ocotea house renovation by In Situ Studio. Photography is by Keith Isaacs
In Situ Studio, an American firm established in 2010 has overhauled a mid-century modern dwelling in Raleigh, North Carolina, that had been "haphazardly chopped up" over the years.
The Ocotea House is located within a suburban neighborhood dotted with large trees. The ranch-style brick house was built in 1959 by an architect whose name is not currently known. With 323.76 m², it had been significantly altered over the years. After the renovation, the house shows us a new look, the red brick was painted blue, and now it sits comfortably in its mid-twentieth-century neighborhood.
"What was originally a clean image of midcentury residential architecture had fallen into disarray," said In Situ Studio, the local team that has renovated the house.
