Embracing Raleigh’s appointed name as the “City of Oaks,” natural wood elements were thoughtfully incorporated throughout the spaces, adding warmth and texture. These organic touches create a sense of grounding and harmony, providing residents with a soothing and inviting atmosphere.
Additionally, greenery plays a vital role in the interior, bringing nature’s calming influence to the forefront. Lush plantings, strategically placed throughout the communal areas, infuse the spaces with vitality and freshness. The juxtaposition of natural materials and the vibrant greenery creates a harmonious environment, fostering a sense of well-being and connection – hence “peace.”
Drawing inspiration from Raleigh’s past, the integration of design elements honor the legacy of Devereux Meadow, the former minor league baseball stadium that once graced the adjacent site. The game room walls proudly display memorabilia, including a team jersey and historic photographs of the team and stadium, evoking a sense of nostalgia and connection to the city’s porting heritage. Local artists and businesses were intentionally chosen to showcase their craft spanning the two-story amenities.
