Another amazing example of the design flexibility of the unparalleled energy efficient building standard, Passive House!
Green building at it’s most charming, this modern farmhouse, lightly French inspired, is a study in whimsy, drama, and eclecticism. Designed for a family of three, lots of entertaining of guests, and plenty of space for private time, hobbies and storage, this 2000 sf home, boasts an interior living tree that defines the entry from the great space, and ample floor to ceiling glass with views to a beautiful prairie field. A cooks kitchen, grand dining area, double main floor offices, and screened porch are all just excellent examples of this homes unique and flexible approach to living.
The exterior is richly detailed, but modern in its material choice, making this transitional design accessible but still edgy. Designed to have the living spaces face the South, viewed initially from the drive on the South, the drive swings around and then is finally approached from the North, this design is a great example that a high performance Passive House can be designed for any site, and in any style.
