Project Title: Cope Passive Solar Home II

Project Type: Passive Solar House

Project Size: 3,600 ft²

Completion: TBD


Planned for the same wooded lot in Watertown Connecticut as the Solar House I, this design took on an evolution of its predecessor. The house was designed to provide more-of-a street facing façade, with a large portion of the main level living spaces at the rear, hinged and turning towards the direction of the south sun. The majority of the open-concept living spaces are facing due south with ample solar gain and the upper story bedrooms back onto the same southwest facing facade. The style of the house is a marriage of traditional cape-style elements and modern clean lines. An abstraction on the front façade provides covered porch entry with built-in benches suspended from its support columns. The material palette is a combination of stained cedar shingles, painted wood trims and a standing-seam metal roof.
