Description by architect: This 4,000-square-foot Durham house is designed to accommodate the Brinegar family’s indoor-outdoor lifestyle and provide them with room to entertain, studio space, and gallery walls to display their art. The design respects the fabric of the Hope Valley neighborhood by matching the scale and façade line of its neighbors, and utilizing a painted brick common to nearby historic homes.

An entry court featuring a fountain flows into a dramatic entry gallery which spans the length of the south facade, displaying the Brinegar’s art collection and providing circulation throughout the house. The office sits adjacent to the entry court and offers views to the fountain as well as the walled side yard on the opposite side. The gallery wraps through the office and leads to two bedrooms and a shared bath.

At the other end of the gallery, a daylight-filled studio enjoys direct access to the terrace and to a mudroom/wash up sink area. The open kitchen, dining and living space offers a panoramic view of the terrace and golf course beyond. A full pantry supports the kitchen and offers flexibility for entertaining.
