1972 - The Daisy and J. Miguel Salcines House, 3201 Carmel Road, Charlotte. Designed by Cuban architect Gustavo Moreno of Greenville SC.
According to their daughter Lillian, "the house is Y-shaped. The central hall of the Y is a slate floor with two planters located in the foyer leading into the living room. The hallway leads to a play room (recreation room with large bar area. There is a guest room and full bath behind that room. The left side of the Y as you face the home from the street includes the living spaces and the right hand side of the Y has 4 bedrooms and two full baths. The rear of the house has glass sliders leading out onto covered and uncovered terraces with steps leading down to the yard. A pool had been contemplated but was never built.
The flat roof and white brick were very unusual at the time. The Charlotte Observer ran a color photo story about the house at the time and interviewed my mother Daisy Salcines for the article.
"Our family took many weekend trips to Greenville South Carolina to the home of the Cuban architect Gustavo Moreno to finalize the design. My family left Cuba in August of 1961 right after the Bay of Pigs invasion. The Moreno family and our family always enjoyed a traditional Cuban meal each time before we headed back to Charlotte. Being able to gather with other Cuban families at that time was very meaningful because everyone who had left the Island felt very homesick and there was a lot of nostalgia accompanied by dwindling hopes of ever being able to return. The front door which is a double door was cut from a piece of wood that was used for the doors of the Metropolitan Opera House being crafted that same year. As I mentioned yesterday my mother also had two commercial water fountains installed in the house (Kitchen/play room) to keep the three of us from constantly grabbing glasses and ice and leaving them in the sink. All of these little details came back for me last night and brought me a lot of joy just remembering." Transferred in 2015 to Salcine's Trust.
