ZeroEnergy Design’s Truro Residence in Truro, Massachusetts is selected for a Grand Award in the 2010 EcoHome Design Awards.

Winner of EcoHome's Grand Award

We are thrilled to receive the Grand Award, and have our work singled out as an example of design excellence and sustainability.

The Truro Residence, a modern Cape Cod home by ZeroEnergy Design, won a ‘Grand Award’ for the 2010 EcoHome Design Awards hosted by EcoHome magazine. Aligned with the magazine’s philosophy, the national contest showcases the “best integration of design and performance” from across the country.

The award winning Truro Residence is a modern, oceanfront vacation home perched 115’ above sea level overlooking Cape Cod Bay. The home features native landscaping throughout the 1.7 acre site and near zero energy use thanks to a high performance building envelope, a geothermal heating and cooling system, and photovoltaic panels that produce nearly as much energy as the home uses each year.

“We are thrilled to receive the Grand Award, and have our work singled out as an example of design excellence and sustainability,” said Stephanie Horowitz, AIA, of ZeroEnergy Design. “Our exceptional team helped to make this home both beautiful and high performance.”
