Who's Next?

SILVERstudio is pleased to have completed an entry to the Who's Next competition sponsored by Free Green. The home design is for a retired, empty nest couple who contemplate the future need for a home healthcare worker and wheelchair confinement as they age-in-place.

Simple in form, the design seeks to dematerialize and blend in with the landscape by wrapping the volumes in a reflective, embossed metal skin that returns pixelated views of the surrounding context.

Site orientation, high-efficiency appliance and mechanical systems, structural insulated panel (SIP) construction, rainwater harvesting for reuse and a raised-pier helical pile foundation system to minimize site disturbance all assist this home in minimizing it's environmental impact.
