In Port Washington, not far from Manhattan, the chabra residence revisits functional international style, proposing solutions with strong aesthetic value and a highly reduced environmental footprint. Also thanks to the choice italian ceramic tiles by Lea Ceramiche.
The project is made of sculptural forms and materials, tied to the cultural tradition of the owners who are of Indian origin. The different technological solutions used for the project include: maple wood, aluminium panels, glass and steel together with the undisputed star of the Chabra Residence ceramics, that together create a distinct harmony.
The architect Stuart Narofsky says:
The Chabra Residence has been LEED-Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design Silver Certified by virtue of the use Lea Ceramiche tiles, but also due to the presence of solar panels, which provide energy to heat water and for electricity, a geothermal heating and cooling system, various green roofs, and a water recycling system.
