Durham Does Modern | Alicia Hylton-Daniel

In today’s episode, we will be speaking with Alicia Hylton-Daniel who is the founder of Hylton Daniel, a design and construction company in Durham, North Carolina. She is both an interior designer and a general contractor, featuring in the Durham Magazine and the HGTV show Love it or List It, where she shares her portfolio of modernist renovation and new construction projects in greater Durham. Today we will be speaking with her about Modernist 4, a new single-family home project currently in development. We will also touch on how COVID-19 has impacted the real estate market in Durham, including how this tumultuous period has spotlighted social justice and safety amid a backdrop of economic uncertainty. 

Now, more than ever, buildings are integral for reshaping our social, work, and lifestyle environments. Modernist 4 is one such example, capturing the urban setting whilst emphasizing a sense of privacy and modernity for the homeowner. Alicia’s intentionality on this project has allowed her to increase the overall connectivity between people and their environments in the greater Durham area. Join us on this week’s episode as we speak to Alicia about her personal journey as well as her plans for her upcoming project, Modernist 4.
