From the architect. Completed in 2010, this home stands on the site of a previous house which burned down, minimizing site disturbance. Nestled between woods and a tree-smattered meadow, the horizontal forms of the house reconnect residents with the site physically.

Sustainable features and innovative construction systems ensure that the house is in tune with natural systems. A central clerestory creates a connection to nature even in the innermost portions of the house, and gives the structure an iconic presence in the landscape.

Both passive and active strategies were used to maximize the performance of this home in regards to both energy and materials. A combination of extensive daylighting and large overhangs maximize natural light while minimizing heating and cooling costs.

A geo-thermal heating and cooling system utilizes the natural temperature of the Earth to augment the passive features. A modular system of precast insulated panels reduced construction waste while contributing significantly to the overall strategy for natural heating and cooling.

The windows in this house are SeriousWindows fiberglass residential line - great to see it being used in all different climates. In the Northwest, they have become the standard for passive heating and cooling design. Up there, high R-value and high solar heat gain works together for southwest facing side of the building, the more windows in SW side the better, to max heating. We're big fans of SeriousWindows in the northwest!
