Buena Vista – Sustainable & Stylish
Relocating from abroad, the client had a keen sense of environmental awareness in designing a home in which to raise his family. Many elements of concrete, steel and naturally finished woods compliment the west coast environment of an ocean side city. Solar thermal panels capture renewable energy providing for domestic hot water. Spray foam insulation with open cell technology ensures maximum indoor air quality & energy efficiency. Bio-climate design allows passive cooling and heating.
LED lighting and low VOC paints were used throughout. All millwork and mouldings, including the Italian glass kitchen are formaldehyde free. Recycled materials were used for deck surfaces. As well, waste produced from the project was also recycled.
Built on a roadway that when translated means ‘pleasant view’, this modern home has direct views that extend over the ocean. With much input from the client, an exceptionally energy effecient and sustainable living space was brought to fruition.
