Palo Alto

Cutting edge design meets comfort and efficiency in this 5,500 square foot innovative healthy home. It features over 35 green building strategies including a hydronic cooling system, planted living walls, a roof patio garden oasis and an irrigation system that uses graywater recycled from the house, all of which maximize its occupants' health conscious lifestyle.

For the family of four the commitment to sustainability began when the original structure was deconstructed and the materials salvaged for reuse. Flyash concrete, Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Certified wood, low and/or zero VOC content finishes and recycled content insulation are a few of the many environmentally friendly materials used, all of which led to achieving an impressive 260 points scored on the GreenPoint Rating system.
