Stunning Passive Solar Remington Court

FRONT FROM SOUTHWEST

One of Hybrid Architecture + Assembly's most recent projects, Remington Court, is quite stunning.  Opting to do everything from start to finish, the company designed, developed, and built the four-unit project — a successful endeavor considering three of the four units sold prior to completion!  The interiors are modern and minimalist, relying on products such as HenryBuilt cabinets, Corian counters, Starck-designed Duravit toilets, and some of the following green features and elements:

Panorama

  • Super insulated walls and roof;
  • Radiant heat w/ polished concrete floors;
  • Rooftop vegetable gardens;
  • Abundant interior natural light;
  • Passive uses of cross/stack ventilation; and
  • Southern solar access.

Perhaps most importantly, however, Remington Court was built to last.  The ground level flex space has a separate entrance, 3/4 bathroom, rough-in plumbing for a future kitchen, and a demountable MDF wall designed to be built out to separate the first level from the other two.  So, over time, the homes can easily transform to suit greater density, as well as to provide an income opportunity to the homeowners.

    Very nice, very modern. I really like the location, but my favorite part is the rooftop gardens! I would love to be able to go to my roof to find a cucumber and salad for lunch. That view from the roof is so nice you could have a picnic up there.

    I think the whole outer appearance stands out. Many solar homes, to me, are bland in appearance but this one has style.

    The plentiful interior light is also a great feature.
