IN-close Farragut Housing

The IN-close building is a five-story building has a central core with 4 rental units and two wings, each containing 3 owners units with additional rental and commercial spaces on the ground floor. The building’s wings hug and invite pedestrians along the path through the building and housing complex to help promote business and safety. The site location and orientation of the wings, not only acts as a guide, but also acts as a passive solar strategy, inviting both people and light into the building. With the shading devices and channel glass fašade the building needs almost no heating during the winter. Our vision being that IN-close would be an economically and environmentally conscious building model.

what is biomimi?

Biomimi is the art portfolio of Priscilla M Lee. It is also, in main ways, her middle name. Biomimi is short for biomimicry, a holistic design approach inspired by nature. Nature has perfected sustainable design, by handling issues without harming the environment and contributing positively to the ecosystem. It is her strong belief that we should reference nature for our own designs, in hopes to increase appreciation for the environment and sustain life for all.
