MapleHaus reacts to global warming

MapleHaus is based around a rigid 12’x12′ grid. Maximising liveable space, and limiting wasted space was the brief, while also adhering to rigorous Passive House building methods. 12″ thick double stud walls, triple pane windows, and a minimal material palette have all been specified. Designed by KLIMA Architecture, the house features 4 beds, 3 baths all at 2500 sf on a .75 acre lot. The exterior is clad in corten steel that will patina and age over time, but also will add a high fire rating as the location is set in a high desert mountain environment in Park City US, and as global warming changes our moisture levels, the threat of fire is more predominant than ever. This house is an homage to the architects 2 year old, striving and aiming for a highly energy efficient house that will utilise ~30% of what a comparable house would utilise during its lifetime. It is also named after her.
