Doerr House

 Bluffton, South Carolina, 2,700 sf

Located in South Village of Palmetto Bluff, this 2,700-square-foot residence was designed with the goal of being a LEED gold-certified home. While the overall project is based in vernacular forms and massing, the exaggerated scale and contemporary detailing make the house a modern interpretation of Lowcountry architecture. The residence will incorporate state of the art technology, including HVAC systems, high-efficiency plumbing and lighting systems and gray/rain water collection. Products were carefully chosen to minimize environmental impact by using recycled or salvaged building materials and low VOC paints and sealants.
