Passive House Retreat farmhouse dining room
 

Passive House Retreat

This vacation residence located in a beautiful ocean community on the New England coast features high performance and creative use of space in a small package. ZED designed the simple, gable-roofed structure and proposed the Passive House standard. The resulting home consumes only one-tenth of the energy for heating compared to a similar new home built only to code requirements.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

"The dining room table from their former family home is the one piece my clients wanted me to design around," says Horowitz. She tucked a built-in banquette in a small bay, providing an ample dining space that doesn't encroach upon the main living room. The traditional trestle table, contemporary chairs and gooseneck barn sconce give the room a touch of modern farmhouse style.Chairs: Family Chairs, Addo Novo and Swag Leg Chair, Herman Miller; sconce: Barn Light Electric

Lovely space. Narrow table, long enough for 4 and don't sit people on ends at all.. would have sliding doors behind, though. Need to think through what it would look like. Could some doors just be half glass.. Would save money right?
