LEED Platinum New Residence

The style of this French-inspired residence may be traditional, but the approach to the design and construction was anything but conventional.  In addition to fitting in with the historic nature of the neighborhood and meeting the Owners’ functional requirements, budget, and aesthetic preferences, this home exceeds the requirements for Platinum certification for the LEED for Homes program.  In order to achieve this prestigious rating, a variety of strategies were employed, including geothermal heating and cooling, photovoltaic panels, cisterns for harvesting rainwater, energy efficient lighting and appliances, as well as locally-sourced and manufactured materials.
