Low cost, low energy house for New Orleans

from ArchDaily

Hosted by Design By Many, the Passive House for New Orleans competition challenged designers to design a single-family dwelling that is sustainable in the broadest sense of the term: affordable to build and purchase, long-lasting, with minimal impact on the local environment, and affordable to heat and cool throughout the life of the building. The winning proposal, designed by sustainable.TO, is based on the vernacular shotgun typology. Organized linearly along a circulation corridor, the long axis of the house runs east/west. This organization addresses strategies of natural ventilation, daylighting, shading and solar heat gain. more
