Environmentally Friendly House By the Pond by Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects


An environmentally friendly home heated and cooled by geothermal energy with both a great view of the pond and a fantastic pool complex.

Fantastic exterior of the environmentally friendly house by the pond.

Welcome to our gallery featuring a waterside home by Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects. The above photograph was taken by Matthew Carbone.

The home’s overall design was directly influenced by a variety of environmental regulations, site constraints, solar orientation, and specific programmatic requirements. The resulting home is a two-story building with a pavilion that acts as a breezeway connecting the yard and pool to the pond on the north side of the property.

The materials in the home were selected for their low maintenance, reasonable cost, durability, and sustainability. Clearstory windows provide the interior with warm daylight, which helps limit the need for air conditioning or winter heating.

The home also boasts an efficient geothermal heating and cooling system, energy efficient glazing, and an advanced building insulation system that exceeds the requirement of the energy star rating system.

The home’s landscaping is native, low maintenance, and drought resistant.

We hope you’ll enjoy this beautiful home.

The exterior of the home at night shows the extensive windows and the sturdy landscaping. The two-story section of the home contains all the bedrooms and bathrooms, while the kitchen, dining room, and living room are in the one-story "pavilion."

The modern-style living room is in a pristine white. The open-concept space is visually separated by a open-flame fireplace between the living room and dining room. Through the two archways behind the dining room is the kitchen.

Another look through the living room shows the pond on the north side of the home. The enormous seamless windows provide the main living spaces with fantastic views of the water.

The home's pool complex is a massive, two-depth pool with tons of lounge seating for sunning. The entire length of the home has entrances to the pool area.
