M.Arch Thesis: Gradient House

This design explores an alternative approach to New England home construction which emphasizes construction efficiency as well as ease of maintenence, renovation, and reconfiguration throughout the structure’s lifetime. The structure’s efficiency and flexibility is achieved by using the Bosch Rexroth framing system and strategic placement of building systems. The reconfigurable Bosch structure paired with a changeable cladding system anticipates necessary seasonal and programmatic changes. The building’s systems are concentrated together for increased accessibility and serviceability. The design proposes a house that is inexpensively and easily maintained and adapted by the occupants, throughout its lifetime.
