Three Raleigh homes were among winners last week of the inaugural George Matsumoto Prize, recognizing excellence in modernist residential design.

A jury of professional architects chaired by Frank Harmon of Raleigh awarded first prize to the Banbury House, designed by John Reese of Weinstein Freidlein Architects and built in Raleigh by Alphin Design Build. The owners sought a minimalist, private home that integrated modest interior spaces with an open-air exterior, including private courtyard, lap pool and cabana/carport. Second place went to a home at 1804 Pictou Road in Raleigh, designed and built by Mike Rantilla; and third place to GREENville House designed by Vinny Petrarca and built in Greenville by Tonic Construction.
