Crabill by Tonic Design

View all 6 Photos

Crabill, designed by Tonic Design, is a cost-effective and simple residence with a COR-TEN® cladding that allows rust naturally to take to the exterior, giving a weathered look that matches the aged bark on the North Carolinian trees. A bit of chartreuse yellow gives the house the punch of creativity that extends to the interiors. The music studio in the house takes up one-third of the footprint, while a communal space is created by an open plan for the kitchen, living, and dining room. A perforated, white metal grating is used as a screen between rooms and as railing for the stairs, echoing the kind of metal mesh that covers microphones and audio equipment. Upstairs, private bedrooms are an escape with a peaceful view overlooking the site.
