During Andrew’s graduate studies at the University of Florida, he was part of the design team for our entry to the first Solar Decathlon Europe. The competition was held in Madrid.
The design draws inspiration from Florida vernacular architecture. The entire house was flat packed and sent to Madrid where members of the team reassembled and delivered the modules to the site.
The home features many sustainable features, such as the naturally ventilated dog trot and reclaimed materials. After purchasing a 19th century home beyond repair in Micanopy, FL, Professor Thomas Smith, RA, worked with several students to salvage materials, including the heart pine flooring.
