Passive solar principles were used to create this nearly completed three-level home inspired by the vernacular potato barns of Long Island’s East End.
This unique, energy-efficient home, built with Structural Insulated Panels (SIPS) will receive six third-party ratings — including LEED for Homes and National Green Building Standard.
Large open spaces create dramatic views and large folding doors allow the house to be opened to the outdoors. As the sun sets, the structure lights up as the Kalwall gable ends and ridge skylights shed soft light to the outside and the pilaster lanterns begin to glow.
Drama can be found in every direction, and light and structure is exposed and infused into every space. At night, soft light is reflected and mirrored; a magical translucent calm prevails.
