Miami-based architectural firm Max Strang Architecture has developed the Lakehouse Residence.
Completed in 2010, this 4,500 square foot eco-friendly contemporary home is positioned in Winter Haven, Florida, USA.
It incorporates both passive and active environmental design and style features.
Lakehouse Residence by Max Strang Architecture:
“Registered with the USGBC, this modern residence is anticipated to be Winter Haven’s very first LEED-certified residence. The interior living areas are conceived as wooden volumes nestled within an outer stucco “shell”. The shell gives generous 8-foot overhangs, which shelter the walls of glass from the Florida sun. A narrow courtyard amplifies the arrival knowledge and creates a privacy barrier for the private realm of the home.
The residence incorporates important passive environmental design and style concepts that result in abundant day-lighting and cross-ventilation potential. Glazing on the south elevation is extremely restricted and a mature oak tree filters afternoon solar heat achieve. Active environmental design and style functions contain a solar photovoltaic technique, solar hot-water heaters, geothermal HVAC and LED lighting.
The one particular-story home, situated on a Central Florida lake, includes 4 bedrooms and a kitchen, dining room, living area and office. A pool and covered terrace are positioned along the lake-side of the property.”
