This project was designed by an inter-disciplinary team of students from architecture, sustainability, and business. We chose Tacoma, Washington as a location to study to marine climate and to see if a new house was economically feasible in an area with such expensive real estate. The goal was to debunk the myth of gloominess in the Pacific Northwest and that solar was possible. This house features a mid-century design which is sustainable by design with its lack of ornamentation, simplicity, large open windows, and natural materials. A site analysis, pro forma, and energy model study were completed which concluded that solar power was a good investment, the the design and construction were economically feasible, and the energy use was low.
