The modular design process, where rooms are constructed in multiples, has allowed Lake|Flato to test and refine our product with the ultimate goal of simplicity, beauty and sustainability. Combined with the site built porch elements, the Porch House is designed to earn LEED certification. With the addition of photovoltaic solar panels — a Porch House design option — clients can choose to have a net zero energy consumption house.
High efficiency mechanical systems, water saving features, natural ventilation systems with operable doors and windows, low embodied energy materials, healthy materials, daylighting, energy efficient LED lighting, and an overall "passive design" to the entire Porch House all work together to create a highly efficient house.

Porches and breezeways with louvered doors enhance shade and breezes while blocking wind.
Deep awnings keep direct sunlight at bay while allowing indirect light to enter freely.
Materials are healthy with low embodied energy for long term, easy maintenance.
