Louver House is a fusion of modern housing and traditional barn. It was designed by LSS to fulfill the client’s passion for barns. This sustainable architecture building combine the traditional barn structure (generous spaces; repetitive timber frames), modern building design, and an open and airy transparency in order to maximize the site’s dramatic views of of the adjacent corn field and nearby moody Atlantic coast.

This barn-like eco construction was built in on the edge of an open agricultural reserve, adjacent to a corn field, near the Atlantic shoreline. The unique of this house is the exterior. A series of louvers are used as the skin, creating transparency for the house to let the natural day light flood the interior, also encourage the natural ventilation. When needed, these louvers can be closed to provide privacy. This system also creates a thin border between the indoor and outdoor spaces where five outdoor courtyards and gardens are arranged around the interior living areas under the peaked roof.

The open plan concept is applied for the interior of this sustainable house. The ceiling is extraordinary high. A series of skylight can help to encourage the natural lighting through the entire space of the house.

The public spaces of this eco friendly construction are  elevated to the second floor to capture the view.  The private areas are covered by the mezzanine which also features a cozy study, a contrast from the openness of the rest of the home, opened to its own private garden. A custom woodshop is provided near the main building, with adjoining changing rooms for use of the lap pool that lies just beyond.
