503 Oberlin Road

RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA

SUMMARY

The Building at 503 Oberlin Road was designed for its location in the Cameron Village neighborhood and won critical praise for its site sensitivity. Davis Kane designed the building for maximized, allowable building area on a small site by utilizing the space under the building for parking. Large existing oak trees on the site were protected and preserved during construction. Permeable pavers were installed in the parking area around the trees to sustain their continued growth. The building houses the office of Davis Kane Architects on the third floor, providing an open-studio environment and glass-faced offices for personnel interaction. The second floor houses eight leasable office suites with a flexible partition system for future office alterations.
