Saratoga Architect for Sustainable Design

Massing of this highly modern design highlights subtleties between varied materials refined into timeless relationships on a woodsy hilltop. Corrugated metal, white-washed cedar and painted fiber cement board clad the three boxes of the garage, public living space, and the private quarters bridging the house.

Net-Zero Energy Strategies

This home, like many designed by LEAP, have the potential to achieve net-zero energy use. Net-zero energy designs produce as much or more than the energy they consume.

NYSERDA has launched its Low-Rise Residential New Construction Program to encourage such buildings, both through financial incentives and technical assistance. To speak with an architect about how to achieve net-zero energy use, contact us at 518.669.9435 or [email protected].


Modern Architecture: Design Details

The owners delight in high design at an affordable price, and were open to experimentation with materials carefully detailed and located to emphasize a warm, nurturing modernism.


The House Plan

The easy floor plan is an innovative example of space efficiency and creates alluring passages throughout the home. Cultural expressions of the owners’ Japanese backgrounds are presented in formal entryway accented with natural elements, a sunken foyer, a bathing area separate from a simple powder room, and reminders and hints of the site elements that give the house a place in the environment.
