516 Euclid Street

Construction is underway on a new house that will be the home of Louis Cherry and Marsha Gordon as well as the studio for Louis Cherry Architecture. The design was approved by the Raleigh Historic Development Commission in September. The project was controversial because it will be the first modern home built in the historic district of Oakwood, Raleigh’s oldest neighborhood. The house was designed in accordance with the guidelines that have been established for construction within a historic district in Raleigh and carefully relates to the historic context in scale, shape and relation to the street.
