2009 Large Residential
Like the winner of the small residential category, this home features sweeping radius walls and complex corners. Designed as an “architectural sculpture,” it also has a large number of custom-curved window openings.
Inside, the feeling is one of openness, voluminous space and ample natural light. The architect states, “The project highlights the unlimited capabilities and flexibility of ICF construction in aesthetics, spatial and functional realms.”
The home also performs on a more practical level, with a five star plus energy rating and a HERS Index of 53.
The owner is reportedly very pleased, and notes that, “The project was completed within the allotted time and budget constraints and exhibits a high level of craftsmanship on the part of the contractor. The overall impact on the community is one of awe.”
Completed in August 2008, the project is slated to be featured by several interior design magazines.
