We are pleased to announce the 2012 AIASC Robert Mills Residential Design Awards Jury has awarded Thomas & Denzinger an Honor Award in the New Construction category for the Keough House on Brays Island, South Carolina.
This project began as a vision of a garden on the site with classic brick walls creating rooms among the great trees and surrounding vistas. As the spatial design evolved into the house forms, a material exploration began. Concrete, stucco, and Hebel block emerged as sturdy building materials for a seamless garden-house that could be energy conscious and age like true garden walls. A beautiful timber hat that covers the interior rooms, and cedar doors and cabinets warm up the indoor outdoor stucco concrete material palette. Insulated building panels on the roof and pvc ductwork buried in the temperature constant soil beneath the slab have made this building very energy efficient. The simple inside outside material choices were made to compliment the garden planting and the owners eclectic collections throughout the house.
