Welcome to the captivating Loop House, a masterwork of sustainable design. This remarkable two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom home is a testament to the effect that thoughtful design and meticulous craftsmanship can have on our lives. With a deep commitment to an environmental ethic, the house strives to produce more energy than it consumes, an uplifting prospect for any homeowner. From the carefully sourced materials to the energy-efficient systems, every aspect has been thoughtfully considered to ensure the highest levels of sustainability without sacrificing style or comfort. It is a reminder that the most sustainable design is an exceptional space that will stand the test of time. Perched on a corner lot atop a hill, the home overlooks Marda Loop’s bustling main street, 33 Ave. Mature trees offer shelter and shade, secluding the house and adding to the overall ambiance and comfort of the space. As the sun swings around the house throughout the day, the solar orientation and unique triple aspect corner lot allow for maximum windows, natural light and free heating. The home’s rooftop offers a stunning view of the nearby mountains, providing a picturesque backdrop for relaxation in any season. The house boasts a beautifully composed and carefully considered material palette that strikes a balance between warmth and austerity. It is constructed using reclaimed Douglas fir, cedar, and structural steel, resulting in raw and elemental materials that contribute to a timeless design. The unique steel and wood staircase serves as the centerpiece of the house. Perhaps the most striking feature is the Q-deck ceilings, that not only emanate the heat from the radiant system, but reflect light in a captivating way. Low maintenance, high-quality finishes and materials are used throughout, including exposed metal ceiling rafters on the main level and polished concrete floors. The wood used is either Forest Stewardship Council-certified or reclaimed from Alberta grain elevators. Equipped with geothermal and solar electric systems, insulated concrete form (ICF) building envelope, triple pane windows, hydronically heated radiant floors, and state-of-the-art Bosch appliances. Loop House was designed to be holistically as efficient as possible. Other features, such as the high efficiency wood-burning fireplace and sun exposed garage add to the sense of comfort. The project aims to showcase best practices in construction and be part of the move towards sustainable building designs.
