5.7.3. Façade Articulation Articulation involves the horizontal and vertical variation of the façade so that walls are subdivided into bays or sections that are vertically proportioned. The following provisions for façade articulation shall apply to any façade visible from a public street or civic space. For buildings set back more than 200 feet from the street, the standards in this subsection apply only to the primary façade facing the street.


Articulation 1. The frontage of buildings shall be divided into architecturally distinct sections or bays with each section taller than it is wide. 2. Sections or bays shall be visually established by architectural features such as columns, ribs, pilasters or piers, recesses, projections, windows, awnings, arcades, or an equivalent element that visually subdivides the wall with a roof or cap feature that provides a rational terminus and integrates with the overall design of the façade. 3. The width of required dividing elements shall be a minimum 12” with a minimum 1:4 project to width ratio.

5.7.4. Utilities A.

Rooftop Equipment: All rooftop equipment shall be screened from view to the extent practical given the varied topography of Wake Forest. The preferred screening would be achieved with a parapet wall. If not feasible with a parapet, another screening device of similar color and material that is compatible with the principal building may be used. If, due to the topography of the site, a physical screen would not suffice, alternative methods to minimize the negative aesthetics of the otherwise utilitarian equipment (e.g., painting the equipment to match the building) may be approved by the Administrator. Rooftop solar systems are not subject to screening requirements B. Wall Mounted Equipment: Wall mounted equipment and downspouts shall be painted to match the building, unless integral to the façade design. No wall mounted building utility service equipment (e.g., electrical house panel boxes) shall be placed on the public street right-of-way side of the building.

5.8. Manufactured Homes

5.8.1. Applicability All manufactured homes permitted shall comply with the requirements of Section 5.3 above (unless the standards below conflict and shall therefore take precedence) and must comply with the standards established by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development under the National Manufactured Housing Construction and Safety Act of 1974, 42 U.S.C. § 5401, et seq and that satisfies each of the following additional criteria:
