2012 Room of the Year: NCSU Chancellor Residence

This 8,000-sq-ft residence, which is home to North Carolina State University’s Chancellor and his wife is nestled on a private lake with sweeping views. Because of the university’s School of Architecture, the home needed to be both inspirational in design and built with sustainable practices, energy efficiency and in-state sourced Carolina products. At the same time, it
needed the capability of welcoming very large groups but needed dedicated private space for the family. That space is on the upper floor while the lower floor has 5,000 sq ft that can entertain up to 200 people comfortably either inside or outside. A catering preparation area was created for large functions, but the kitchen was also designed to be the heart of the family that lives there. Black marble counters, white cabinets, chrome fixtures and simple forms give the interior a familial feel with a historic touch. The soaring ceiling makes the kitchen airy and open. Stainless steel appliances and inset recessed panel doors complete the professional appeal of the kitchen.
