House by the Pond by Stelle Architects

House by the Pond by Stelle Architects | geothermal heating & cooling | Scoop.it

Stelle Architects have designed the House by the Pond in Water Mill, New York.

The overall design of the house was a direct response to an array of environmental regulations, site constraints, solar orientation and specific programmatic requirements.

The strategy was to locate a two story volume containing all of the bedrooms, running north/south along the western side of the site. An open, lofty, single story pavilion, separated by a space comprised of two large glass pivot doors, was located parallel to the street. This lower scale street front pavilion was conceived as a breezeway, connecting the light and activity of the yard and pool area to the south with the view and wildlife of the pond to the north.

The exterior materials consist of anodized aluminum doors, windows and trim, cedar and cement board siding, selected for low maintenance, modest cost, long-term durability, and sustainability. Overhangs and sunshades limit the need for summer air conditioning while allowing solar heat gain in the winter.

Specific zoning, an efficient geothermal heating and cooling system, highly energy efficient glazing and an advanced building insulation system resulted in a structure that exceeded the requirements of the energy star rating system...
