THE NEW URBAN BUNGALOW II

The 1,600 square foot house is a smaller eco-friendly modern interpretation of the vintage Height’s bungalow. It’s site specific and oriented for cross ventilation with operable casement, awning and clerestory windows, and a large screened porch. Like “The New Urban Bungalow,” a long narrow floor plan without hallways and an open balcony at the second level overlooking the living space below maximizes ventilation and reduces radiant heat. Strategically placed windows light spaces and lessen the need for artificial lighting during the daytime hours.
