Newtown Square, Pennsylvania
Wyant Architecture was commissioned to design a modern, energy efficient single-family home with views towards the neighboring farm. Structural insulated wall and roof panels (SIPs) and triple glazed windows create an air-tight envelope. Additional sustainable technologies such as solar power generation, geothermal/radiant HVAC and heat-recovery ventilation allow this budget-conscious project to achieve a degree of energy efficiency rivaling that found in Passive House compliant homes. Public spaces open to one another and orient around a light filled, two-story atrium, the play of light and shadow becoming decoration in otherwise spare interiors.
