LEAFHouse is a holistic design. As with our model, the leaf, our house incorporates elements of water conservation, energy production, air transpiration, and simplicity and delight in form. But a leaf does not exist in isolation. It is part of an interdependent system. Likewise, our house must become a part of a system with the site on which it sits. A number of elements accomplish this, including decks, plantings, pergolas, and gardens. In its permanent home, we will further explore the integration of our prototype into the Chesapeake Bay watershed and climate. The final goal is an architecture that leads everyone to an abundant future through sustainable design.
