Small, Appealing and Sustainable: Prefab LEED Porch House

The Lake | Flato Porch House project comes from  Lake | Flato Architects and pays tribute to highly sustainable living spaces. Here is the press release we recently received from the project developers: The Lake | Flato Porch House combines the efficiency of factory built modules connected by custom designed ‘porchesa?? for design-conscious owners who want a Lake|Flato home shaped by its place and climate with a predictable outcome of quality, time, and cost. The prefabricated living and sleeping modules can be configured in many ways – either alone, stacked or side-by-side. The ‘porchesa?? are outdoor elements, such as porches, breezeways, carports and terraces.  These connect the rooms and ensure that each Porch House is custom, suited to the land it sits on and LEED certified. Central to the design of each Porch House is the porch itself. Relatively inexpensive spaces to both build and maintain, porches showcase the structural elements of roof construction and exterior walls, create additional shade, foster cross ventilation, and most importantly, provide pleasant and exciting spaces that maximize the connection with the outdoors.

Innovative Construction Material Displayed On The HI-MACS House

The collaboration between German architectural studios Karl Dreer and BembA© Dellinger Architects gave birth to this amazing residence that borrows its name from the natural acrylic stone used in its construction. The residence located in Bavaria, Germany, very close to the Ammersee Lake and overlooks the green forests of Upper Bavaria displaying a contemporary architecture spread over 395 square meters on a 1,200 square meters property. The geometry borrowed from the Bauhaus style and a contrasting bright facade differentiates this residential building from its neighbors. The shell structure of the two cubic volumes is made from cross laminated timber, with clear white mineral plaster finishes. HI-MACS, an innovative mineral material made from a high-tech mixture of 75% natural minerals and pigments and 25% acrylates is widely used in the construction due to its fantastic properties. An over-sized entrance with filigreed details welcomes inhabitants in their new home, opening up opportunities for entertainment and relaxation. The photos below will guide you through the interiors of this spectacular, unique residence. Enjoy!
