MTA's Geothermal House


I use Firefox. If you don't, you should. It gives you the ability to install different extensions that give the browser more and better functionality. One extension that I use all the time is StumbleUpon! StumbleUpon! lets you select from a broad series of "tags", and brings up random website that are related to that tag.

Today, I stumbled across Dexigner, an all-things-design news site, with catergories on Product, Graphic, Fashion, Architecture, Digital, and Art. Going with my first love, I of course jumped into the Architecture catergory, and wouldn't you know that the first thing on the list of news items is a story about a new house just outside of Boston!

Architectural Record, an architecture and construction industry magazine, named the Geothermal House, designed by Maryann Thompson, its House of the Month for August. The 8,000 sq. ft (that's 10x my apartment!), $3.2 million house is truly beautiful. Geothermal heating and cooling (hence the name) and handicap accessible bath tubs show what can happen when you include sustainability and accessibility into home design. Click here for a slideshow.
