Modern Modular Southampton


The mental image of enormous boxes suspended by a hoisting crane inspired this custom-designed, energy-efficient modular house incorporating the technology and experience of “green.” A prefabricated concrete foundation and factory-built modules minimized the carbon footprint during construction; passive solar, photovoltaic panels, geothermal heating and cooling, super insulation and extra mass added to floors and walls reduced energy consumption. Recycled and sustainable materials were used throughout, from recycled aluminum panel cladding to recycled paper countertops. The owners live in light and nature, enjoying dramatic views of architectural masses formed by decks and walkways that lead the eye into surrounding woods.
