Modern House by Tonic Design in Raleigh is Modern Richmond’s April Tour

Cedeno, MR
The private Cedeno residence will be open for public touring on April 9th.

April 7, 2014 (Raleigh, NC) — The Alex Cedeno residence in Richmond, Virginia, by Tonic Design + Tonic Construction, an award-winning design-build firm in Raleigh, NC, will be the featured property during Modern Richmond’s April Exchange Tour on April 9 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Modern Richmond Tours highlight examples of both residential and commercial properties in Richmond that employ Modernist techniques. Modern Richmond events are free and open to the public, but a $5 donation is appreciated.

Completed in 2011, the Cedeno home’s design integrates modern construction materials and sensibilities with high function. Key priorities were to ensure aesthetic integration with the surrounding terrain, to maximize views of the James River from the master bedroom and office, and to create an integrated, open space on the main floor and outdoor patio conducive for entertaining.

The house features a spacious finished basement that includes a wine cellar, an artist’s studio, a gym, and a large music/media room designed by Rives Audio, an acoustical engineering firm in Iowa. The second floor houses the master suite and two additional bedrooms and baths.
Sherman Associates PLC built the house in close collaboration with Tonic Construction.
Homeowner Alex Cedeno will speak during the tour at 6:15. Participants are free to tour the house before and after his brief talk.

The Cedeno house is located at 9151 James Riverwatch Drive, Richmond, VA 23235. For more information on the tour, go
