Project Description

McCowan Residence

The McCowan residence, in the Treyburn community just North of Durham, took four years to design and build. This modern, 6000 square foot house sits comfortably beneath a canopy of deciduous trees and incorporates generous outdoor decks which extend the living space into nature. A glass bridge ties the two masses of the house together and sits above a screened-in lap pool. Because of its location between a golf course and a wooded area, the house feels very open without compromising privacy.
