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.

The floor plan is discussed in greater detail in Sheri Koones book, Prefabulous and Almost Off The Grid. In general, it was designed to be open plan and take advantage of clear views to the North and passive heating from the southern exposure on the back of the home. Ceilings are 10' high, in order to add a spacious feel to the deceptively small footprint.

I used Mythic Non-Toxic paint in Bell Song for the exterior color. It is a lovely rich white that has a bit of warmth without looking yellow. Another suggestion - Chantilly lace

Porch style would fit house. Porch with sloped edges would fit on front with a few rockers on porch we could later move to our porch

Second floor balcony/railing is interesting, especially if you can change the door to a full double (casement?) window and have two, to bring a lot of fresh air into the second floor.

This whole house screams of my taste. It is contemporary yet vintage at the same time. It is crisp and clean and very neutral. Absolutely timeless! I want this house!
