Project Description:

The Peconic Bay house is a RES4 Prefab that adopts a saddlebag element to accommodate vertical circulation and service items. This RES4 Prefab was conceived as an efficient solution to a tight 3 bedroom 2 bath home. Located on southern edge of the great Peconic Bay on Long Island, the primary house volume is sheathed in warm western cedar while the saddlebag mass is sheathed in a cool slate cement board. The house sits perched on a high point of the site and aims to take advantage of the bay view from it's second floor living spaces. This 2,004 sf house includes a living area and kitchen along with a master bed and bath upstairs. Downstairs are 2 guest bedrooms, a bath as well as a media room/study and entry. Using its roof-top solar panels and its high efficiency geothermal HVAC system, this house is its own power plant, contributing power back to the grid daily.

Green Keys:
Site: This compact prefabricated home features many sustainable assets ranging from site selection to the use of renewable energy. A sustainable site evaluation avoided using an environmentally sensitive site by selecting an edge development lot within 1/2 mile of existing water & sewer along with basic community resources and public transportation.
Sustainable Landscape: A basic landscaping design limits turf, incorporates drought tolerant plants and avoids invasive plant species. The permeable groundcover and carpark limit water run off while permanent erosion controls, such as protective retaining walls, have been designed and installed.
Geothermal HVAC: The HVAC system is an energy star approved forced-air geothermal unit. The open loop geothermal well eliminates exterior condenser units, minimizing ozone depletion and global warming contributions.
Photovoltaic System: A renewable energy generation system is incorporated into the house. A 9,000KwH roof-top solar array has nearly eliminated electric bills.
Prefabricated Construction: This modular house also incorporates advanced framing techniques and minimizes framing waste. The homes manufacturer is an approved planet-friendly home factory and incorporates an extensive waste management and recycling program in their plant operations.
Energy Conservation: The project utilizes efficient windows and low-E glazing that exceed energy star rating for Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) and U-Factor. In addition to incorporating energy star appliances,

This one is low mass. I chose this one because is a good example of low mass.

R: like the dropped ceiling to hide ventilation etc... I also think a drop to the ceiling over the island is the way to go - it really makes a difference in terms of defining the space - aesthetics, practicality and acoustics - J

I like the way they dropped the ceiling over the kitchen / dining area in order to fit in the recessed lighing
