This modern residence design gets LEED-certified as the first certified in the region. Mainly constructed in square shape, this modern house interior is combined in same taste and supports the passive environtmental design. "Green" design concepts are embeded to this "white" house for supplying the home energy needs.



Location: Winter Haven, Florida, USA
Area: 4,500 sqft
Year: 2010
Hvac Coordinator: Joseph Strickler
Electrical Contractor: Robert Krieger
Structural: Douglas Wood Engineers
Mep Engineer: Jose Martinez, P.E
Solar System: Quick Beam Energy
General Contractor: Alan Ulch Builders

Lakehouse Residence by Max Strang Architecture:

“Registered with the USGBC, this modern home is anticipated to be Winter Haven’s first LEED-certified residence. The interior living areas are conceived as wooden volumes nestled within an outer stucco “shell”. The shell provides generous eight-foot overhangs, which shelter the walls of glass from the Florida sun. A narrow courtyard amplifies the arrival experience and creates a privacy barrier for the private realm of the home.
The home incorporates important passive environmental design concepts that result in abundant day-lighting and cross-ventilation potential. Glazing on the south elevation is extremely limited and a mature oak tree filters afternoon solar heat gain. Active environmental design features include a solar photovoltaic system, solar hot-water heaters, geothermal HVAC and LED lighting.
The one-story home, located on a Central Florida lake, contains four bedrooms and a kitchen, dining room, living room and office. A pool and covered terrace are positioned along the lake-side of the home.”

Casa Sulla Morella, The Modern House
Casa Sulla Morella, The Modern House
Castelnovo Sotto, Reggio Emilia, Italy, a contemporary house featured with sustainable technologies has been designed completely by Andrea Oliva Architetto. 
This house built in 2009 is constructed like modern house shape but there are much differences, the house adapts the environmentaly friendly complement such as passive and active technologies. Natural sun enters and makes accent of exposure into the house interior. Combination color usage of its interior both bright and dark of wall and furniture sharpen deeply its view outside and inside. There are some active energy technologies equiped and supplied for supplying the house energy, especialy exploiting the sun.

Casa Sulla Morella by Andrea Oliva Architetto:

To the borders of the country of Castelnovo Sotto, beetween the stream Morella and a roman road, in a landscape context characterized from channels, ditches, rows, shrubby stains, gardens, villas and agricultural houses it places the House on the Morella.
Inserted between rural landscape and observer to 60 mt from the road, suspended by the ground to protection of the tall stratum of superficial wather and to memory of the installations terramare, the residence is composed of two staggered elements to northeast: the porch or climatic mitigator and the housing space or insulating body.
With an orientation of 18° toward west the house exploits to the best the natural contributions that, because of the geometry of the porch, of the ample surfaces south glass door and of the flowing obscuring, they anticipate the opening to the winter sun and the protection from the afternoon summer sun.The study about the solar axonometries has allowed, therefore, to opportunely appraise the incidence of the sun on the wrap and get into proportion the fixed screenings of the vertical settis and the horizontal shutters and the mobile screenings of the flowing pannels.
The combination of some characters of the agricultural houses they are proposed through a reason euclidea, that in the key form-function, distills elements as the porta morta (passing space in the residence with scope of ventilation), the sporto di gronda (coverage's extension for protection of the vertical masonries) and the portico (integrated coverage or juxtaposed for the protection of open and external spaces of the building).
The residence has a structure in portant walls (smaller presence of thermal bridges), constituted by bricks with pores, of 38 cm, coupled to a layer of coat insulator on the external side of 10 cm, the attics are made of tiles and concrete with riddles in reinforced concrete, coibentate and separated while the coverage had a layer of 22 cm of isolation, that is coupled to a coverage mantle in corrugate iron, draining, connected to a system that pick up the rain water.
The windows are in plywood with low emissive glass and gas argon. The plant design is integrated with domotic and allows a reduction of the consumptions through the control of the temperature of the single rooms, the predisposition for an efficient job of the great electrical appliances, the automatic turning off of the lights in empty places, the checked generation of warm water for sanitaries and the regulation of the use times for each single instruments.
The heat system is constituted by radiant panels feeded by a low condensation boiler while the sanitary warm water is integrated from panels solar, places on the coverage, where an integrated photovoltaic system for 6 Kw is in progress of realization. The residence is endowed with a mechanized system for the rycircle of the air, that bring the scheduled consumption for the heating to 5,19 kWh / mq.year.

Contemporary House From England, White Lodge

Contemporary House From England, White Lodge
A British architect, DyerGrimes Architects has designed a contemporary architectural house named White Lodge that is located in Tandridge, England, UK.
This house stays above about 5 thousand square feet that is equipped with many kind of eco-friendly technologies and has determined the sustainable structure and material using for its long term advantages.


White Lodge by DyerGrimes Architects:

"The site was originally home to a 1960s detached bungalow surrounded by tall trees and hedging with far reaching views to the Surrey Downs beyond. The area is populated by traditional pitched roof architecture typical of its green belt credentials. The proposed designs were unprecedented in the immediate area and subject to Tanbridge Council's strict planning requirements.

The site sloped sharply away to one side which would greatly limit the overall footprint of the building and the desired surrounding landscape. Following a rigorous planning process, Dyer Grimes Architects achieved consent to infill and level the site and build a highly contemporary house of 480m2. Modern building technologies were combined with the highest quality materials including hardwood cladding and white render with an abundance of glass throughout.

The glazed ground floor living space is surrounded by beautifully landscaped grounds, while the first floor appears to hover over the kitchen dining area as well as project over the swimming pool. Great emphasis was placed on constructing White Lodge in an environmentally friendly and sustainable way. An impressive sustainability target was set; to generate 20 percent of the energy required by using renewable energy sources.

Energy efficiency has been maximized through the incorporation of Solar hot water collectors on the roof, a highly sustainable drainage system and an air source heat pump which circulates heat around the entire house. The result is a stunning modernist home which has won the admiration of the local community, the Council and the media alike."
