‘harbor house in the woods’ by jendretzki architecture

 

located in an area called ‘mount misery’, the ‘harbour house in the woods’ by american architecture studio jandretzki sets the wave
of renovations imitating it, as lawmakers try to change the street name, which if done, will double the property valuations overnight.
this existing home was re-designed to connect the exterior with the interior spaces. the gardens and forested exterior areas are the
appeal of the context which is activated by opening up sidewalls, creating porches, connecting them with decks, terraces and stairs,
and bringing as much light as possible into the house. by doing so, green views are revealed as different elevations of the facade
enhance the flow of the building.

 

although not LEED certified, the renovation was conceived with green systems in mind such as solar paneling on the roofs, rain water
collection for grey waters, environmentally sound materials such as cork and recycled wood and acrylic composites, energy efficient
appliances, and HVAC systems, and cross ventilation. all wood work such as decks, pergolas and stairs were fabricated with recycled cedar.
the interior fabric was designed to provide a calm, peaceful, and natural environment.
