Concord Green Home

2011 EcoHome Design Award Winner

Key to the successful design were the homeowner priorities of family health, energy performance, and optimizing the walk-to-town construction site. To maintain health and air quality, the home features a fresh air ventilation system with energy recovery, a whole house HEPA filtration system, radiant & radiator heating distribution, and low/no VOC materials. The home’s energy performance focuses on passive heating/cooling techniques, natural daylighting, an improved building envelope, and efficient mechanical systems, collectively achieving overall energy performance of 50% better than code. To address the site opportunities, the home utilizes a footprint that maximizes southern exposure in the rear while still capturing the park view in the front.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

"We were always looking for moments and opportunities to create space and make the best of everything," Horowitz says. The storage bench and recessed reading shelf create "a nice place to sit down with a book; the windows were placed low to work well on the facade; from the bench they provide a view out to the playground that is at eye level."Also, remember those windows in the downstairs wet room? This is what is on the other side; the bathroom is tucked beneath this staircase and behind the windows.

"I have always dreamed of living on the ocean, and yet we love this town. So, I designed the house to live like a vacation home. Why not get that feeling every day of the year?" Kauffman Tharp says. "The interiors are relaxed, use natural materials and connect with the outdoors — barefoot simplicity meets casual elegance. These are the things that we all love about a vacation home, and I help my design clients build those features into their own homes." We were always looking for moments and opportunities to create space and make the best of everything," Horowitz says. The storage bench and recessed reading shelf create "a nice place to sit down with a book; the windows were placed low to work well on the facade; from the bench they provide a view out to the playground that is at eye level." Also, remember those windows in the downstairs wet room? This is what is on the other side; the bathroom is tucked beneath this staircase and behind the windows.
