Warburg is Simple, Modern, and Efficient

There’s something about the traditional yet contemporary “house-shaped” form of this design that just resonates with me.  The home was designed by an Alberta-based studio called Bioi pursuant to the owner’s request for something simple, contemporary, and energy efficient with a build cost of less than $100,000.  It turns out, Warburg House received the highest EnerGuide rating available without generating its own energy, according to featured project information at Architizer.
