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.

Door opening is approximately 11'. There are four door panels that all move. I designed the doors to slide/stack back on face of wall to left of opening shown for ultimate flexibility.

I had the doors primed in a diluted mixture of water and Mythic non-toxic paint matched to Benjamin Moore's Edgecomb Gray. I had the concrete island in the kitchen matched to the same color.

I commissioned this table especially for this space. In fact, I joined craftsman Norton DeAmorim at the lumber yard to select the planks for the top. It is finished in a paint wash with varnished base, all with ECOS Organics non-toxic finishes. Thanks for the compliment.

Thank you! I just went to it on their website. I may have to have mine made as I prefer it not to be adjustable. My daughter has similar in her room and the rings get caught.

Yes, I agree. Typically, I source my rods custom to avoid this issue, but the practicalities of the timing on this project had me reach for off-the-shelf stock and customize it on site.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

These doors provide a farmhouse vernacular detail on the bottom, and the glass on top allows the away room to share natural light with the dining room. When necessary, they can close off the away room, but they can be opened to make both spaces feel larger.Kauffman Tharp scored the candle lanterns from Vagabond Vintage and gave them a makeover that began with "a paint wash that looks like zinc," she says. "We tied them with thick, rough manila rope to plumbing pipe that spans between the ceiling beams (I did a bronze paint wash on the pipes to match the curtain rods). Battery-operated pillar candles from Restoration Hardware have built-in timers."Tip: "Hang natural linen draperies high and wide at the windows to add verticality to the space, while blocking none of the natural light," Tharp advises.
Becky Harris added this to Bright Light, Big Lantern
This designer added an aged zinc paint wash to a pair of lanterns found at Vagabond Vintage. She then hung them from pipes with rope, creating a unique and memorable lighting solution.
Rachel Grace added this to Renovation Detail: The Crossbuck Door
Interior designer Lisa Kauffman Tharp commissioned these custom interior crossbuck doors from Circle B Barns in Lancaster, Massachusettes.
