Gaines Group Architects









Location: Albermarle County

Description: This beautiful home was designed with a goal of net-zero energy using active and passive solar strategies. Built-in 2005 this was our first zero energy home design and Charles’ first custom home as a licensed architect. Our clients and Charles worked through the building science process to develop an innovative home that is comfortable and functional. Integrated into the design are a Trombe wall, deep overhangs, high-performance HVAC, and even an induction cooktop, a new technology at the time. The home has 3 bedrooms, an open living plan, a home office, screened porch, and a variety of exterior spaces, perfect for daily living.
