Honor Award – Residential
Project name: Gap Cove House
Project location: Rockport, MA
Firm name: Ruhl Studio Architects
Jury comments: A modest coastal home confronts resiliency, accessibility, and energy efficiency. Designed in collaboration with the local Conservation Commission, this net-zero gem will annually produce as much electricity as it uses. Its modern design is a formal response to the rugged site and to the impending risks of climate change.
