This ultra-contemporary style home was designed after the modern beach houses that line the California coastline. “Our goal was to design a small footprint, high-efficiency home that was 100% naturally lit by daylight. The glazing package was a critical part of the project, both aesthetically and performance-wise,” said Dave deBruyn of InHaus Development Ltd. deBruyn also decided to use floor-to-ceiling glazing in conjunction with the 12' ceilings to provide the illusion of space. The large amount of south-facing openings presented a large challenge when it came to choosing a window supplier who could provide an innovative solution to reduce heat loss and heat gain to qualify for LEED® Platinum status.
The Integrity All Ultrex® energy-efficient, double-pane Casement and Awning Windows and Sliding Patio Doors with LoE– glazing were chosen to effectively minimize heat loss and heat gain. As a result, the combination of Integrity and Marvin® windows and doors helped the home qualify — and ultimately receive — LEED Platinum certification. In addition, the Integrity All Ultrex Casement and Awning Windows with sleek, ebony exteriors gave the modern home an incredibly clean, contemporary look and has turned out to be a stunning project for InHaus Development Ltd. According to deBruyn, “Not a day goes by that we visit the house and don’t find someone parked outside taking photos.” All Ultrex windows are built tougher, last longer and protect better.
