The Durham Home

The exterior visualization of the home uses regional vernacular blended with an open and modern interior to provide a stunning flow and aesthetic on both the interior and the exterior. The materiality for the exterior façade is based on natural materials and colors so as to integrate the home into the surrounding nature of the site. Through its form and materiality, the home integrates itself into the neighborhood with an in depth thoughtfulness as to its impact.

The functional design concept was developed using a public/private wings that intersect at a centralized circulation point. The layout also promotes the functional open flow of the interior as well as maximizes the solar energy access and efficiency while creating an aesthetic that is contemporary and complimentary of the surrounding neighborhood. Within the open floor layout that allows for free flow between individual spaces; universal design elements that are employed enhance the spatial environment to its maximum potential. Combined, these interior design qualities provide a comfortable living environment regardless of age or ability. The use of tall windows and floor materials that are visually similar on the interior and exterior provide the visual of an extensive living environment.

Using both LEED and Passive Haus design strategies, the home would achieve a LEED Platinum rating. PassiveHaus design standards create an impressive level of energy efficiency. In addition to the design’s energy efficiencies and sustainable material choices, the employment of a small photovoltaic solar energy system can make this home design Zero Net Energy. The design also seeks to create a holistically sustainable development by addressing social sustainability, ecological sustainability and economic sustainability. Our holistic approach to sustainability is an integral driver in this design and becomes an inherent element of the home’s aesthetic.
