“The project goals,” relates Carin Whitney, Kieran Timberlake’s communications director, “included providing savannah-like views of the Chesapeake Bay and opening the interior fully for natural ventilation, and to give it a porch-like feel. The plan also called for trapping the radiant heat that forms in the cavity between layers, to provide thermal insulation when the exterior acrylic doors are in the closed position.
British Columbia has spectacular views of the Canadian Cascades and the inlets that surround it and Burnaby, a city just east of Vancouver, undulates over hills that reach 1,200 feet high. One of its residences, planted on top of one of these hills, offers big views of the Vancouver skyline and the majestic coastal ranges. For the homeowners, the Fedukes, making those views an integral part of their residence was important. So much so, they chose to blur the lines between outdoor and indoor living.
“Named for the tall pines that characterize its site on the Chesapeake Bay,” says design firm Kieran Timberlake of Loblolly House, “this 2,200 square-foot single family residence seeks to deeply fuse the natural elements of this barrier island to architectural form.”
Loblolly is also a forward-thinking experiment in prefabricated residential architecture. With this goal in mind, the designers were looking not only for a home that suits its sylvan surroundings, but one with repeatable results. NanaWall’s engineering and manufacture turned out to be particularly apt for meeting these goals.
