Kelly Residence


Kelly Residence - Sustainable design is at the heart of this house without being overtly expressed in the external aesthetic. The house is designed with photovoltaic cells hidden on the roof, grey water reclamation, artificial lawn, and rain-screen façades to help thermal stability, as well as flash hot water heating, bamboo floors and ponds of water to promote evaporative cooling in front of large expanses of glass. The residence is articulated as “boxes”, each finished in white plaster, and raised on steel pilots. Instead of being complete four-sided objects, each “box” has one side which is replaced by high-density wood panels coated with phenolic resin. The panels, manufactured from sustainable products.
