Lakkas Residence

Raleigh, NC

Built on an infill lot in an established Raleigh neighborhood, the house fits the diverse, unpretentious character of the neighborhood while comfortably accommodating a multigenerational family. Private rooms are organized around an open, light-filled central space with kitchen, dining area, and living room. A generous screened porch and balconies connect the house to the surroundings and provide outdoor living spaces. A one-bedroom apartment on the ground level, provides independent living for grandparents.
