Baboolal Residence, one of the newest modern, Net Zero houses designed by Collge of Design alumnus Arielle Condoret Schechter, AIA, is featured in the current print and digital editions of RESIDENTIAL DESIGN magazine.

The Baboolal Residence in Chapel Hill is a modestly sized single-family home for a family of four. "...At every turn on this project, [Arielle] prioritized the qualities of light, views, and building performance over superficial, budget-busting bling," observes the magazine's renowned editor, Claire Conroy.

The nine-page spread includes Arielle's site and floor plans along with architectural photography by Tzu Chen of Raleigh.

Arielle's project is one of three houses highlighted in the magazine's "Design Lab" section, described in this edition as "Modesty Becomes Them: Three modern dwellings find expression in understatement."

Residential Design is a relatively new, but already award-winning, publication "for architects and builders of distinctive homes." The print edition is published six times a year.

The Baboolal Residence has also been featured recently in  and Inhabitat.com, the latter with the headline, "No waste, no carbon, no wonder this net-zero home breaks the mold." "

Project: Picnic

Student: Kirsten Ostrea 

Art + Design

This project explores the use of color and light through additive and subtractive means. 

By shining blue and red lights respectively on the compositions, the artwork is divided into two layers of fruit and insects. When the cool colors of the bugs overlap with the red filter, they produce a much darker color through the subtractive process, and vice versa for the fruits. 

Interestingly enough, a wide range of soft yellows to intense reds can reveal themselves in the blue light. As provided contrast, a limited variety of greens and blue can appear on the red light.

Nature's Lessons for Adapting to Extremes | Link in bio
Wednesday, April 21, 12-1 pm

North Carolina State University Professor of Architecture, Dr. George Elvin, explores the world's hottest, windiest, wettest and driest places to understand how plants and animals adapt to extreme environments.

He applies nature's lessons by designing and constructing dwellings capable of withstanding hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes and wildfires.

In his talk, he will share insights from his travels from the Atacama Desert in Chile to the rainforests of Hawaii, describing how plants and animals adapt to the world's most extreme environments. He will also share how studying nature can help us design for a rapidly changing planet, illustrating his work at NC State creating disaster-proof dwellings.
