Residential Architecture: zHome by David Vandervort Architects: “..concerned with preserving the urban nature of the community as it already existed; but in addition to the amenities afforded by compact urban living, they were interested in adding privacy and residential community ties that many people associate with suburban developments. The architects prioritized the functional aspects of the development with the goal of making it an efficient and sustainable community – compact and integrated with technology that could provide the development with clean and renewable energy from heat pumps and photovoltaic panels, while also supplementing energy conservation with passive design..” Solar energy, heat pumps, sustainability, social sensibility..
