Small House

Street Address: 
310 Lake Boone Trail
Date: 
1951 and 1961

Raleigh architect G. Milton Small designed this house as his own residence. It is a nearly square one-story frame house sited on a steep hillside in a bend on Lake Boone Trail. Small studied under the Modernist master Mies van der Rohe at the Illinois Institute of Technology. The Small House, with its uncluttered cubic shape, flat roof, and emphasis on proportions, was the first structure in Raleigh to evoke the design concepts of Mies. Additions and alterations made by Small after the initial construction continued in this style. Private residence.
