#Luiis_3x ] B9 Architects’ Family Share Residence Maximizes Space & Light in Seattle: ... [ #Luispokel ]

A green theme permeates the entire house thanks to the use of energy-efficient design and sustainable materials. A high-performance building envelope minimizes energy loss, while a reclaimed fir rainscreen, sourced from a deconstructed warehouse in Tacoma and provided by Windfall Lumber , protects the building from weather. High-performance glazing provides daylight without overheating, a solar preheat helps minimize energy use for domestic hot water, and in-floor radiant heating and a green roof further increase efficiency. The home features sustainable materials like reclaimed wood, formaldehyde-free cabinetry, Ecotop counters and Paperstone. The Family Share Residence was completed in 2012 and was selected as part of the AIA Seattle Explore Home Tour in 2013 and is a selection in the AIA Seattle Future Shack 2012 Exhibit at 4Culture.
