Honorable Mention

The MH House will accommodate up to four units within two structures totaling 2,430 square feet on a hillside site in Duluth, Minn. By placing vertical circulation along a narrow band on the north side of the structure, local firm COULSON creates an open plan with generous floor-to-ceiling glazing on the other three exposures. Providing kitchenette and bath facilities on each floor (and in the separate, single-story pavilion) allows for maximum flexibility: Each floor can function as an individual unit or be combined as a near-net-zero-energy multilevel residence or in a live/work configuration. —Edward Keegan, AIA

From the Jury

“The entire project is systematized, and it’s designed to meet Passive House standards without looking like a Passive House. ” —Betsy Williamson
