The Stack House
prototyping
Using the models of vernacular houses developed before air-conditioning, this Houston house prototype challenges the current building paradigm of well-sealed houses through the implementation of smart, simple design. The employment of the stack effect, strategic placement of openings, careful material considerations and site orientation were examined to create this affordable, comfortable way to live that actually reduces energy usage over time.
