114 Glendale: A Modern Masterpiece in Chapel Hill

The phrase ‘modern residential architecture’ brings to mind names like Frank Lloyd Wright and Philip Johnson. These attention-catching residences are often constructed from steel or concrete with large panes of glass which fully utilize natural light and maximize views of the surroundings.

Modern style residences typically limit ornamentation, especially on the exterior, allowing nature to take center stage in many homes. Some common elements of modern architecture are open floor plans with elevation changes, flat roofs and other flat planes, rigorous geometric lines and large windows.

114 Glendale is a modern, custom home designed by award-winning architect Philip Szostak and is being built by Bold Construction. With a total of 4,853 heated square feet, the Chapel Hill home will have 5 bedrooms, 4 full baths and 1 half bath. The residence is expected to be completed in the 3rd Quarter of 2017.

Situated on a wooded slope, the three-level design makes full use of the terrain, tucking each level neatly into the hillside. Straight lines and clean design proclaim the modern style of this custom home. When completed, the floor-to-ceiling windows will provide unimpeded views, inviting the natural surroundings indoors.

Jason Dell of Bold Construction says, “This home is a great example of new modern home design, combining classic style, extreme engineering and synergy with the land it’s built on.”

As one of the premier custom home builders in the Triangle, Bold Construction is passionate about each project.

“It’s a pleasure to build something this unique,” Dell continues. “The lay person doesn’t understand how difficult it is to achieve the simplicity, crispness and clean lines of the modern style. This is part of the beauty of this project from a construction standpoint. It’s our little secret.”

Philip Szostak, the award-winning architect of this home, is best known for his work on the Durham Performing Arts Center (DPAC), one of the jewels of the Triangle.
