House on Grand River is a luxury, ultra-modern home along the riverbank. The design maximises passive solar and ventilation design strategies, is super-insulated and air-tight, and employs cutting-edge hydronic heating and cooling systems using geo-thermal technologies. Grey and rain water is captured for irrigation and solar thermal panels offset the domestic hot water loads. The layout incorporates an accessible suite on the ground floor to accommodate aging relatives and long-term flexibility. The public and private zones of the home are separate and distinct, each capturing unique views of the river front.
