Modern house designed by designer Christopher Megowan. Today, this century-old house serves as a dormitory for students from the University of Southern California. Megowan – a student of the University’s School of Architecture bought a house as an investment property, and this addition was built on a modern budget less than $ 130/sq. With the economic efficiency and environmental responsibility for the mind, the young designer / developer designed the basic structure of four-by-eight-ft. fiber-cement walls and polycarbonate panels that allow natural light to filter into the house, reducing the demand for grid-powered lighting. In addition, polycarbonate walls connected with integrated LED wall that creates a burning effect for energy-saving lights throughout the house. Concrete floor allows passive thermal control. Inside, high ceilings enhance a sense of openness house and brightness. The bedroom is separated by a closet with sliding door, acting as a barrier for sound privacy.
