A new residence is underway at 133 School Street. The striking new build will be occupied by artist Ben Perrone. Eco-architect Kevin Connors (eco_logic STUDIO) designed the structure that will include the residence, an attached garage and a studio on the formerly vacant lot.
“The house is solar, all electric, and completely off grid,” said Perrone. “This is possible and should be a standard for building through maximum insulation and excellent design by the architect, Kevin Connors. Also some of the land is going to be a community garden aided by runoff roof water collected for the garden. Plantings will enhance the building and will be low maintenance.”
There will be few windows to allow room for giant artworks and installations.
The design is a reflection of the spatial quality of the triangle. The intent of the form is to be temple like.
