VANGUARD WAY // NIMMO
Quiet and subdued, the architecture respectfully stiches the relationship between home and site together like a treehouse deep within the woods. Materials are kept simple and monolithic, clearly defining openings outward toward the site and balanced with a metal veneer that reflects the shadows of the trees against the simple canvas of the house. By maintaining as much of the existing landscape from the outset of the design process, the natural edge of the site serves as a backdrop to the entirety of the living space within. In line with the mission of the Urban Reserve, the home utilizes a series of sustainable design techniques ranging from passive solar strategies through carefully designed shading elements to articulated openings to the extensive use of recycled/recyclable building materials.
