Eidolon Designs in Raleigh will once again host “Thirst4Architecture,” a networking event sponsored by North Carolina Modernist Houses (NCMH) and Emilie Huin/501 Realty, on Thursday, March 5, from 6-8 p.m. Free and open to the public, Eidolon’s T4A event also includes the company’s annual Oyster Roast.

T4A events are opportunities for architects, artists, building managers, contractors, engineers, furniture dealers, realtors, and anyone else interested in Modernist residential design to connect and create strategic alliances in a casual environment. The hosts provide refreshments and other entertainment while introducing T4A participants to their businesses.

Located at 414 Dupont Circle in Raleigh’s historic Boylan Heights neighborhood, Eidolon Designs handcrafts fine furniture, architectural millwork, doors, kitchen, bath, and office components, media integration pieces, and sculpture. According to owners Ann Cowperthwaite and Mike Parker, who have supported NCMH events for many years, the Eidolon team members “are artists and craftsmen, not manufacturers.” The company is also committed to environmental sustainability, the owners said, making sure their source hardwoods come from certified tree farms, that their sheet woods are formaldehyde-free, and that all finishes are non-toxic.

Those attending the March T4A will get to tour Eidolon’s workshop and speak with the owners and other Eidolon craftsmen while enjoying the oyster roast. For more information on Eidolon Designs visit eidolondesigns.com.
