LEED-H-Certified

When the homeowners decided to preserve and renovate this 10,300 sf modernist home, they wanted it to be both sustainable and aesthetically pleasing. Using the LEED checklist as a guide, the design team was able to target environmental performance goals.

The home’s site was protected for erosion and trees were wrapped to minimize long-term environmental damage. Water use is minimized with drought-resistant plantings and a rain catchment system for manual irrigation. Other green features the home incorporates are low-E windows, radiant-heated engineered 1/4” veneered wood floors, solar panels, Iycenene insulation, low-VOC paints and finishes, and an energy recovery ventilator for fresh air.
