Haeccity Studio Architecture embraces the contrast of tradition within a streamlined modern space.
When a pair of scholars decided it was time to leave their Richmond home of 40-plus years for a space where they could comfortably enjoy their retirement, they didnt have to look much further than a lot down the block. For them, the project was about finding something that would allow them to age in place and create a home base for their children and grandchildren to come back to, says Haeccity Studio Architecture principal Travis Hanks. It was also going to be a house that integrated ideas from classical Chinese architecture, as that was relevant to their cultural background. The office sums the design concept up perfectly: the sleek, modern built-in cabinetry and work space provide an elegant backdrop for a collection of Chinese art and antiques.
