The Woung Residence

For the Woungs we provided a home of multi-generational modernism in the suburbs of Charlotte, NC. The main stretch of Lorraine and Clinton Woung’s handi-capable residence is a thread of aluminum, steel, glass, and concrete. The two-story black cube houses the family garage and second floor contemporary loft designed specifically for the Woung’s adult son.

In homage to the courtyard wall of Lorraine’s Jamaican childhood home, the concrete block structure at the entry is sequenced to guide one into and through the residence. The entry itself is treated as an exterior space holding the two structures toghether, with glass all around and exterior siding continuing through and folding away for their respective acceses.
