Vinnedge Ride Residence
This residence facilitates change over time, and that flexibility makes it an efficient home. It only uses the space, energy, and water that is needed at a given time through smart zoning and use of appliances. The house has an open plan and contemporary aesthetic that borrows from nearby structures allowing it to be both new and contextual.

Other passive and active features that promote efficiency include the large overhangs on the reflective, metal roof to prevent excess heat gain; airtight, spray-foam insulation in the walls and ceiling to boost effective r-value, and efficient appliances including tankless water heaters and high SEER heat pumps.
