Reggie’s Home will be the first client house that Rural Studio has built since Rose Lee’s in 2009. The project will explore alternative rural house typologies, use local materials, utilize passive design strategies, and expand beyond typical construction methods.
The site, located in Newbern, holds the remnants of Reggie’s family home, which he helped to build while in high school. The team aims to reuse materials from the family home after its demolition. Reggie would like to live, cook, and spend as much time outdoors as he can, making this a central focus for the project.
