For the past couple of months, the dozens and dozens of projects that were submitted to the Marvin Architect’s Challenge competition began competing to win a special honor — the “people’s choice” award, a new element added to this year’s Architect’s Challenge. This public-voting face-off — called the Architect’s Challenge Showdown — just wrapped up, and we’re thrilled to announce our winner: the Rose Cottage Project, by David Hart of the HL Turner Group.
Located in a rural neighborhood in the capital city of Concord, New Hampshire, this multi-generational, aging-in-place house demonstrates how a zero net energy, sustainable residence can be built within a reasonable budget to incorporate multiple themes of long life-cycle value. It’s a beautiful home on a large lot that incorporates solar panels as a major — but not obtrusive — element of the house.
