Gesundheit Library/Residence AWARD People’s Choice: NEAIA – Hillsboro, WV
DDB built and partially designed the Gesundheit Library and Adams Residence over the course of about 1.5 yrs. Working in collaboration with Sellers and Company Architects, the entire building was built from 5 sketches. Undulating curves create a strong structural membrane while endowing the space with quite a bit of gesture. All structural members fall on a single beam that become the horizon line that defines where the roof ends on the exterior. Finally, this house is passive solar, uses radiant heating, is earth-bermed to the north with a highly insulated basement and uses natural blue-jean insulation above.
