This residence is designed within a neighborhood of homes situated around a private airstrip. Homeowners have an aircraft hangar as well as a home on a suburban scale lot. Our concept here places the passive house residence over the hangar rather than adjacent to it, utilizing a portion of the hangar roof as the floor of the home and the balance as a habitable roof garden. This optimizes views from the living spaces and removes the hangar from view at the private drive streetscape.
These images are all early conceptual studies, so none of the materials or finishes should be read literally... they will be refined as work progresses over the next few weeks.
