Dinner party, anyone? Take a look at the crowd-pleasing dining rooms from the Dwell community that caught our editor’s eye this week.
From the architect: “1330 Brook Street House an example of Studio 804’s mission to build creative sustainable housing in established, but marginal urban neighborhoods. It is a three-bedroom, two-bathroom, 1,300-square-foot house that makes extensive use of salvaged material and minimizes energy consumption. 16 net metered solar panels on the roof provide up to 4.8 kilowatt-hours of power and will generate enough electricity to operate the house at net zero energy use over a calendar year. It was designed to be clearly contemporary while still fitting into its working-class surroundings of small, unassuming homes.”
From the architect: “A young couple asked [us] to help create ‘a place to share with friends, a place for adventure and exploring, being a kid again, cooking together, experiencing nature, and being part of something bigger.’ The result is a long-term plan for ‘restoring the soul of the property’—including designing this main house, renovating a number of existing cabins, and generally creating a more sustainable landscape and building infrastructure for future generations.”
