Construction on the North Carolina Chapter of the American Institute of Architects’ Center for Architecture and Design was recently completed in Raleigh. The southern and northern façades of the building are clad in locally sourced cypress, which was chosen by Frank Harmon Architect PA for its sustainability benefits as well as its durability. Cypressene, a preservative oil produced naturally in the wood, makes the material resistant to decay, insects, and other harmful elements.
