ABSTRACT:

This new house in Oak Park is designed for good living by providing a simple, healthy, and just-big-enough environment; by virtue both of its size and ultra-efficient thermal envelope, fixtures, and appliances, it consumes a small fraction of the energy of a code-built house. The continuous ventilation system and non-toxic, formaldehyde/VOC-free finishes ensure optimal indoor air quality and comfort. The small footprint makes room for the screen porch/outdoor fireplace room and generous garden. We hope to demonstrate that luxury can be found in a smaller house if it is built with quality and attention to indoor-outdoor connections.
