Material use – This home was designed by using all local and reclaimed materials. Many of the interior finishes are of reclaimed wood and/or of FSC certified wood products. This home like all the other homes in this series also takes advantage of all-natural resources - Daylighting, Natural Ventilation, Storm Water Control, and Solar Power.
The home’s basic rectangular form is sheared along the east-west axis allowing for a spatial composition with the landscape, as well as creating different volumes of space within the home as well as out.
Project Concept - The intent is to design a series of Contemporary Farm Homes that will meaningfully merge design, science, technology, and construction - to create architecture that will enhance everyday life by taking a holistic approach to the design and construction process.
These Homes redefine the suburban homes by having it artfully engage with the landscape. Mindful of budgetary considerations, theses homes have been designed to be functional and cost-effective, yet aesthetically appealing and environmentally conscious. Simply stated – These series of homes merge the understanding of architecture, engineering, landscape architecture, and the environment.
