Professional Builder's GreenZone
brings Net-Zero home to Greenbuild 2012
As part of Greenbuild 2012, the Paradigm home — the prototype in a new series from Method Homes — will offer a unique design approach that allows architects and designers more opportunities to make choices about plan and building configurations. Paradigm is made up of prefab building elements that can be put together in several configurations with numerous options; this includes windows, cladding systems, and even bathroom and kitchen modules that could later be attached.
The cutting-edge design — focused on indoor and outdoor living space — also centralizes around location-based flexibility. The home is designed for efficiency in specific climates, such as overcast Seattle or sunny San Francisco.
The entire one-module structure is a 722 square foot-studio, which will be 100 percent complete upon arrival at Greenbuild. An additional 200 square foot greenhouse will provide opportunities for urban agriculture based on the project scale.
Paradigm will be on display at Greenbuild 2012, held Nov. 14-16 in San Francisco.
