EHA Family Trust Residence by Ward+Blake Architects

 

Check out this wonderful house located in Wilson, Wyoming, Us. The project was sited on a low lying wetland that demanded consideration due to a high water table. The solution to this problem was to elevate the house three feet above existing grade and to utilize an insulated slab on grade to avoid the probability of fostering mold growth in a crawl space. The Architectural water features we used to enhance the project while at the same time provided positive drainage.

 

Additionally, the client wanted to avoid remove any of the mature trees on the site and still capture the view to the mountain range to the north. Careful siting allowed both objectives to be attained. Low energy consumption was a goal and this was attained utilizing an open loop ground source heat pump for both heating and cooling. Indoor temperatures are conserved utilizing R-40 and R-65 wall and roof assemblies.
