"Green" Gallery House

Accord, NY

Inspired by local geologic formations, this new single family residence is conceived as super insulated, low maintenance sod roofed home studio and show case for contemporary art, sculpture, and design. Currently under construction with an anticipated completion date in 2019, this striking contemporary house uses the traditional vocabulary of building elements in novel ways. Low maintenance exterior features green roofs, cement panel siding, and zinc-clad exterior windows. This building boasts enhanced insulation envelope performance and a naturally (and mechanically) conditioned living environment.
