These two new modern townhouses have been situated to take full advantage of the sun. The south-facing front set of windows captures the low winter sun while calculated overhangs block the summer sun. Solar panels on the roof provide hot water for the domestic water system and are integrated into the high-efficiency-zoned forced air furnace. Natural flow through ventilation is designed into the floor plan. The homes are five-star Energy Star rated. At 2,800 square feet each, the units have three-plus bedrooms and three or three and one-half bathrooms. One unit has an exterior rear yard, while the other has a roof deck. The fully-appointed modern kitchen designs feature modern cabinetry, polished concrete countertops and a vegetable sink or a bamboo butcher block in the island. The master bathrooms feature separate sinks, a linen closet and a large tiled shower with bench. One unit has a make-up table and the other has a steam unit with aromatherapy. The master bedrooms have walk-in closets. The homes each have an attached garage space and a series of aligned decks on the front façade to help integrate the various materials.
