The Bay House – a glorious green home design by Gardner Mohr Architects

Taking advantage of overlooking the marvelous Chesapeake Bay, this glorious green home called the Bay House offers the owners an ideal space for living and relaxing. Cleverly designed by Gardner Mohr Architects, the Bay House was transformed from an old house with the 80′s architecture into a modern and glamorous home with the new, green and sustainable architecture. According to Gardner Mohr Architects, “The owner’s sustainability goals were met by using passive as well as active strategies. Passive strategies include ventilation, day lighting and shading controls.  Water conservation and harvesting are achieved through low-flow fixture selection, collection and reuse of rainwater, the infiltration of 100% of the storm water on site, and the construction of a “living shoreline” for breeding of aquatic life.”
