Hillside House on Chesapeake

A corrugated steel facade providing privacy from the street to the north and opens on to the exceptional views of Monticello and the surrounding hills towards the south.

Designed as a net-zero energy house and home office, the house takes advantage of passive solar strategies. A twenty-one KW solar array will make this the first net-zero home in the area.

The street façade offers privacy from the street and is clad in corrugated metal panels. Artfully placed apertures animate the façade where a large glass opening provides entry and a view of the modern wood and steel stair. The garden façade by contrast is glassy and is animated with decks and porches. A sliding glass wall opens the kitchen and dining room to a modern screen porch. A two-sided fireplace is shared by the adjoining living room and porch. Principal-in-Charge: Chris Hays
