FEATURES: Advanced Building Envelope, Energy Efficient, Indoor Air Quality
The Woodbee House by Grouparchitect is a new two-story 3 bedroom, 3-1/2 bathroom residence with a walkout daylight basement. This house was designed as an aging in place forever home with the master suite on the main level with no stairs or steps on the entire main level and is roughed-in for a future elevator if needed by the homeowners. The site is located on Whidbey Island with views to a neighborhood greenbelt. A large amount of glazing on the back of the home provides views directed out to the greenbelt to provide privacy while still providing limited windows on the street and side property elevations to provide natural lighting and ventilation throughout the home. The home is designed for indoor-outdoor living with a large folding door opening out onto the patio space. The house was designed with energy efficiency in mind and consists of a combination of energy efficient glazing, heaver timber framing, structural insulated panels (SIPS) walls and roofs and insulated concrete forms (ICFs) for the lower level basement walls.
