6030 House By Architect Gregory La Vardera
Custom modern steel home designed as a second home on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay for a Washington, D.C. executive to escape the noise of the city. Completion photos are limited due to owners request for privacy.
An economical example of a custom prefab home project as a part time residence. With limited use the building needs to be secure, and safe from damage during strong North Eastern storms that rip across the bay. Simple forms, clean lines and a minimalist exterior front entry conceal the owners activities inside while the open windows to the back take in views and light.To keep costs low and completion times short, the architect designed a 3/4inch plywood floor over steel joists that are pre-punched for utilities.
Hurricane Rated Wind Loads to 120MPH as well as ultra-energy efficient roof and wall panels that are an evolution of the commercial cooler industry. Superior Strength with bolted steel structure and steel panels that screw to an all steel frame. Completely custom solutions eliminate the restrictions of typical Modular Prefab Housing.
