Dwell Home: Silicon Valley, the Bold Look of Sally Kuchar [Video]

Back in March, we mentioned the Silicon Valley NextHouse prefab, which was designed on the inside by Sally Kuchar.  If you weren’t able to tour the home, no worries because Kohler sponsored several videos with Sally and the homeowners.  The 2,400 sf Dwell Home: Silicon Valley was designed to accommodate natural light, solar orientation, seasonal shading from vegetation, and prevailing wind movement, and also to contribute to passive heating and cooling.  It’s an incredible prefab home.  In the above video, Sally explains some of the green materials they used, such as cork tiles, reclaimed limestone, FSC certified brazilian cherry, low-VOC paints, and earth plaster walls.  Below, she talks about the kitchen and master bath design — how about those penny tiles in the kitchen?  Nice.  Enjoy the videos …

    nice, but too bad there were missed opportunities – such as lack of daylight sensors in their bathroom (all lights on while there is a ton of light streaming into the bathroom?!) and those shower fixtures were definitely not low flow (next time, try high-pressure low-flow to not sacrifice comfort)…
