Minimalist House Design by Johnston Architects

October 01, 2013 By: archinhome Category: minimalist house design

The house, designed by Johnston Architects PLLC and built by Tall Tree Construction, accommodates both professional and practical demands, but it also fulfills a deep desire to do what is right. The Schell Wheeler house will soon receive a LEED Silver certification. Blow-down trees from storms provided the logs that were milled into siding, fascias and trim. A ground source heat pump, supplemented by solar water preheating supplies energy to the house. Other strategies are implemented throughout the house, but the overall character of the two buildings complete the goal of sustainability: the complex is extremely livable within its environment. Even on a grey and rainy day this forest retreat is filled with light. For further detail visit Johnston Architects site. Minimalist House Design.

L-shaped House with Beach View by Nathan Good Architect

June 30, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Architecture, Home Design

This L-shaped House with Beach View is designed by by Nathan Good Architect, located in Oregon beach.
Cannon Beach Residence is designed by Nathan Good Architect with sustainability in mind. It provides more energy that it consumes. That is possible because of 5kWh rooftop photovoltaic system and 12-inch-thick concrete walls. There are also solar-thermal tubes that provide hot water and a ground-source heat pump that warms and cools the air. The house is L-shaped and wrapped around Sitka spruce that’s 38 inches in diameter. Recycled materials were used during construction and the house is designed to last multiply generations. It perfectly blends into the forested hillside thanks to its sedum-sprouting green roof. One side of the house has views of Haystack Rock while the other – views of the beach. A lot of windows provide the house with plenty of the natural light.
