Energy Efficient Small Home in Maryland by Robert Gurney Architect
Hampden Lane House was designed by Robert Gurney Architect and is located in Bethesda, Maryland, USA. According to the architects, the client for this project was a forward thinking entrepreneur who wanted his home to be energy efficient and to occupy a small part of the property. The new building was designed as a cube, having 2,200 square feet and with spaces fully utilized. There is also a flat roof providing an additional 1,100 square feet of outdoor living space with views of treetops and the downtown Bethesda skyline. Here is more from the project developers: “This house represents a deliberate departure in both the thought process and the realisation of current building trends in the neighbourhood. Instead of building a large house with pretentious ties to the rural past, this new house is smaller with a stronger relationship to the modern, urban area that Bethesda has become. The house is intended to be more site sensitive, environmentally conscious, and to provide comfortable, efficient living spaces“. We salute this approach and looking forward to see more similar projects. How do you find this home’s design?
