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.

Hi Summer. Good question. Not sure of that one. My guess is that is approximately 3.5-4".

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Owner and interior designer Lisa Kauffman Tharp searched for the perfect piece of property for more than a year. She finally found this one nestled into a neighborhood of existing older homes. The design evolved from two iconic Massachusetts vernacular precedents: the farmhouse and the iconic Cape Cod and Islands style. The overall form is taken from the former, while the latter provided inspiration for details like the clean white trim. Both precedents also inspired "rough luxe" meets coastal interiors as well. "A metal roof is the right place to invest, not only for its durability, but also for its aesthetic," Horowitz says. Those little details you see at the edge of the roof are snow guards, which keep the snow from sliding off the roof into huge piles on the ground. Some of the eco-friendly elements include extra insulation, high-performance windows, radiant heating, daylighting and passive cooling.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Architect's Toolbox: Solar-Powered Design
Another home on the cutting edge of sustainability and green design also has very traditional architecture. This home includes features such as a passive cooling system (proper shading and the ability to take advantage of natural air movement) and Energy Star compliance (third-party-certified to use 15 percent less energy than allowed by the building and energy code).

This home is a walkable distance from the center of town. Among its design priorities: 1. To be a healthy home with excellent air quality. 2. To use Not So Big House principals to maximize space. 3. To be energy efficient. 4. To anticipate future uses and needs as owners change. Let's take a look at how the homeowner, interior designer Lisa Kauffman Tharp, and architect Stephanie Horowitz of Zero Energy Design met these goals while creating a beautiful home that fits in with the neighborhood. Owner and interior designer Lisa Kauffman Tharp searched for the perfect piece of property for more than a year. She finally found this one nestled into a neighborhood of existing older homes. The design evolved from two iconic Massachusetts vernacular precedents: the farmhouse and the iconic Cape Cod and Islands style. The overall form is taken from the former, while the latter provided inspiration for details like cedar shingles and clean white trim.
