One of Michelle Kaufmann’s iconic designs, Breezehouse is a beautiful single family residence for modern enthusiasts designed by the award winning architects and design team from Blu Homes, being the model of their first development in New York state.

With an exquisite sense of style embedded and eco-friendly features, the modern residence is something that might just catch your attention.


Like all the other model of houses designed by Blu Homes, the three-bedroom, three-bath dwelling is built with the highest green standards in mind, combining warm environmentally friendly materials, superior finishes, high ceilings, clean lines and plenty storage systems to create a delightful, light-filled indoor environment which is better ventilated, quieter and more energy efficient, and also be less destructive to the natural habitat. It’s open interior designs enable for spaces that feel larger than they are, which lead to smaller carbon footprint. Warm and inviting, the house features unique options including stunning Nanawall® (sliding glass walls) that opens onto the front and back courtyards. Their purpose is of course to increase airflow to the bedrooms and kitchen, and also the natural light.

An exquisite display of sustainably forested woods, used in defining the built-in cabinetry and heated floor, enhance the feeling of belonging right in the middle of the beautiful natural landscape. The interior is bright, minimalist arrangements, simple color palette with red accents and with a focus on functionality. Besides all its original features and decor details, one of the most exciting aspects of this residence is that it can be designed according to your preferences, lifestyle and budget. It can have optional additions like an elegant master suite with a luxurious walk-through closet and private sitting area, integrated staircase for all floor plans, and  modules can be flipped or mirrored to orient the house to best suit your site and views. The unique use of steel for structure framing and advanced building technology make it possible for Breezehouse to withstand extreme weather conditions, making it suitable for almost anywhere in North America.
