Lite House – Sea Glass aaa Sanibel, FL
AIA Florida Honor Award, 2010
Lite House embraces the art of sustainable living. The home responds to the residents, community, landscape and region blending state-of-the-art technologies; a design process of engagement; and traditional vernacular principles that celebrate the Sanibel experience. The Lite House reveals and connects us with the poetics inherent in the practicality of daily life in a naturally beautiful place. Advancing toward positive cultural engagement in sustainable living, Lite House proposes integrating technologically and culturally rich approaches to ‘close loop’ resource stewardship that generate productive outputs such as power, water, food and knowledge; reduced external energy and material inputs; and supports a lifestyle of sustainability.
