Cape Cod is a style of housing that originated in New England. A low, broad frame building, one and a half storeyed with a sharp pitched roof and a large central chimney characterizes it. Atema, an architectural firm based in New York, designed the Cape Cod House. This house has been the eternal expression of the American homes for hundreds of years and is a beautiful amalgamation of tradition and utilitarianism.
Integration of design and construction strategies led to the conception of this beautiful house. The house is stretched over 3,000 square feet. The house is built using modular construction method which resulted in unswerving high quality, stronger and more weather tight structure. On-site construction time was considerably reduced as the foundation was brought in from Connecticut and installed in a day’s time and house was delivered from Quebec immediately after the foundation. The house was set on the foundation with cranes and was closed up in two days.
The house is very wisely designed for perennial comfort. Clever placement of windows and doors lets in the daylight and rarely requires false lighting during the day. Super insulated shell helps to control the heat and heat- recovery ventilation keeps the indoors air fresh. The rainwater collected from the roof can be used for watering the garden and bamboo flooring planks used in the shower area gives the house a character of its own
