Nahmias Residence

Designed by Eric Rawlings, AIA, LEED AP and built by Arlene Dean. The use of the Prairie style generated forms that optimize passive solar, passive ventilation, and natural daylighting. Located in a neighborhood with Craftsman Bungalows from 1910-20, the design used elements and forms familiar to houses in the area and just arranged in a more modern way. This house is a modern example of an extended family dwelling. The grandmother lives in the walk out basement with elevator, separate exterior entry, and interior stair making it like a separate living unit, yet still attached.
