Raven Run Residence (CSC Design Studio Headquarters)

Raven Run was the first residence to integrate passive and active solar systems with an attached greenhouse and superinsulation. Internationally published in professional and popular journals, its innovations were widely emulated and its super-efficient multi-stage solar-air collection system received a U.S. patent. Its unique form and spaces demonstrated that responsiveness to sun, site, climate and lifestyle could indeed generate a new architecture. The recent addition of a 5.25kW (30-175W modules) solar photovoltaic array to the nearby CSC Design Studio office offsets the electrical usage for both buildings on the property, making it a zero-net energy site.
