A Prototype House for Super Living
- Welcome to SH-1, a progressively designed dwelling based on universal design, adaptability, convenience and sustainability. Please drive in! SH-1 is a competition entry imagined by WORKUS Studio. The entry called for an 1800 sq. ft. residence for an “empty nester” couple. The prototype is designed to sit comfortably on typical 1/4 to 1/2 acre lots. It features a 1.5 kW PV solar sail, grey water collectors, and a grapevine shade trellis. SH-1’s staggered double stud wall, equipped with expanded polystyrene (EPS) exterior sheathing and blow-in cellulose insulation, ensures a maximum theoretical R-Value and minimal wall conductivity for the building envelope.
