Cape Henry Residence

Virginia Beach, VA
This home is design for a fully accessible first floor living. There is a wheelchair ramp in the garage. The most remarkable feature of this home is its concrete plenum floor system, designed to deliver conditioned air through a honey comb of cavities under the floor slab that retains the temperature of the conditioned air passing through it. In engineering jargon this concept is called a “heat sink” and adds comfort as well as increased efficiency to heating and cooling operations.
