Modern Residential Architecture: Reimagining the Cottage




This webinar will profile three custom home renovation projects and the challenges and opportunities faced by designers. Presenters will talk about the constraints on each project, whether due to site challenges or historic preservation requirements, and their approach to not only meeting the challenges but also forging new opportunities. In all cases, the projects highlight how designers can meet client wants and needs while creating unique and innovative spaces that will stand the test of time.


Nina Edwards Anker, Arkitekt MNAL, Assoc. AIA, Ph.D., Founder, neastudio, will present the Cocoon House project. This experimental three-bedroom home is anything but modest when it comes to environmental inquiry and sustainability credentials. It’s fully LEED certified, exceptionally well-sealed and almost completely self-sufficient.
