Tomasello Residence
Sewickly, PA

The owner and the architect team agreed early on to establish a set of guidelines for the project: The house was to be super efficient, oriented to take advantage of solar gain and heated and cooled using a ground source system. With the exception of the mechanical and electrical systems, close to 85% of the materials used were manufactured from within a 100 mile radius including the stone from a nearby quarry.
