The Glidehouse Modular Home by Britco
October 17, 2005
The Glidehouse is a modernistic home designed for clean, simple and environmentally-friendly living. Based on basic sustainable, green-living design principles, the Glidehouse is designed to collaborate with nature by maximizing natural ventilation and indirect lighting.
The name ‘Glidehouse’ is derived from the home’s design, which includes gliding glass walls at the front of the home to maximize views, and the opposite interior wall is made from gliding wood panels that slide to reveal easily accessible storage units.
Designed by Michelle Kaufmann, an architect based in San Francisco, the house was originally designed for herself and her husband who wanted a house as green and sustainable possible Britco
worked collaboratively with the architect and CRG,(Construction Resource Group), located in Redmond, Wa, to keep the original design concept while making the Glidehouse a modular reality.
