Handsome New Bay Area House Goes For LEED Platinum

New, 1 comment

Working with San Francisco-based firm Butler Armsden Architects, Ron Bigelow and his wife Ellis created the sustainable new-build of their dreams amidst an enclave of Eichler homes. As Dwell reports, the final result is a "Prairie-meets-midcentury-modern" design comprising three flat-roofed pavilions connected by breezeways. The project, which manages to preserve the various beech and redwood trees on site, is also on track for LEED Platinum certification. From a hot water recirculation pump in the kitchen to highly permeable paving stone that helps prevent off-site stormwater runoff, the home is brimming with eco-conscious features.

Head to Dwell for the full story and gallery.
