Not so long ago a pair of houses have popped up in Lawrence, Kansas. They share similar designs and they’re LEED Platinum certified which is a very important aspect of this entire project. The houses were designed and built by Studio 804 and the project was completed in 2019. Everything is defined by sustainability and we’ll go over a few of the most important details right now.
The houses are positioned side by side with slightly different orientationsThe glass facades expose the living areas to the outdoors and let the natural light inWood accents were incorporated into the design as a way to break up the white palette
The houses follow a simple A-frame design aesthetic with clean lines, glazed facades and stylish interiors. The white exteriors and reflective metal panels help to keep the houses cool during the summer. The structures are also well insulated which ensures a pleasant and comfortable atmosphere inside all year round. The architects avoided wasting materials as much as possible and also made sure to choose energy-efficient fixtures and appliances for the interior in order to really turn this into a sustainable project. As far as everything else goes, simplicity was the key and that ultimately turned this into a very inspiring build.
