MARKET STRATEGY
The target market is a couple working from home. This demographic is prevalent within the Baltimore/Washington market, where many home-based businesses exist. The design also facilitates telecommuting, saving residents time, fuel and car-maintenance expenses in one of the most congested areas in the country.


 


But it is the bathroom that is the centerpiece of WaterShed, connecting the two larger modules—but also showcasing the mini-ecosystem. The shower has a large window screened with vegetation, so users feel they are showering outdoors.


A 9.2 kW photovoltaic array powers the home; it is clipped to the standing seam metal roof and features micro-converters. A dedicated evacuated-tube solar-thermal system heats water. WaterShed was among the seven entries that succeeded as a net-zero home. GB
