The BrightBuilt Barn showcasing the next generation of sustainable buildings.
Why are most homes still being built the way they were 100 years ago? In an era of innovation, where technology is used to bring sustainability in every field that why not in the architectural market? Why are traditional residential construction only used by most of the world?
So to change the scenario and, with the inspiration to design and build a revolutionary, forward-thinking moonshot of a project disguised as a barn, in Rockport, Maine was built by Kaplan Thompson, to achieve the goals of environmental responsibility, adaptability over time, replicability, attainability, and education potential inside what had to be a beautiful, liveable, timeless structure resulting in one of the regions first truly documented net-zero energy buildings every year since 2008, with live energy use visible online and on the building itself.
Owned by Keith Collins, the BrightBuilt Barn is a net-zero building, which means that it will generate more electricity over the course of a year than it uses and is also designed with future adaptations in mind, allowing the building to change over time, adapting to both use and the environment.
The mission of “Beautiful Sustainable Attainable” that didn’t have mean to be fulfilled earlier, now has a channel to help those who care less about a unique answer to living and more about a well-designed home that provides all of those original goals of the BrightBuilt Barn – durability, health, sustainability, performance, and beauty, as well as an easier path to ownership.
