INHABITAT.com: "Tonic Design's Energy-Efficient Smart-Stell Opens Up To The Outdoors In North Carolina"
By Ana Lisa Alperovich
The Smart-Stell House is an energy-efficient North Carolina home made from standard off-the-shelf materials. Created by Tonic Design, the residence features a discreet facade that opens up in the back to a beautiful park, trees and a private lake.
Smart-Stell House is a one-story horizontal house that likes to keep its privacy from the outside world featuring a band of clerestory windows on the top. Envisioned as a “home and vacation home” at the same time, it opens up to the back welcoming nature in.
