This duplex is in the planning stages and is to be built in Winooski, VT. The project has been designed by Israel Smith Architects of Burlington, VT. The design addresses the need for affordable, energy efficient urban infill housing.
The building envelope for this house has been designed as super-insulated. Walls will be 6″ Dense Pack Cellulose wrapped with 4″ of polyiso rigid foam. Roof will be 12″ Dense Pack Cellulose under 4″ of polyiso foam. The roof has been designed to support a planted “green roof” and house four photovoltaic solar panel arrays.
The objective of this project is that it will serve as a prototype for other infill projects.
