New Rainier Vista is the name given to a sustainable micro-community, comprising as many as 42 homes, conceived by Dwell Development.

Dwell Development has made a name for itself for coming up with highly sustainable and technologically innovative green homes, but it may have outdone itself in terms of ambition and audacity with the New Rainier Vista.

These homes are capable of generating as much electricity as they need to operate. The homes feature double-framed walls for boosted insulation, triple-glazed windows and heat recovery ventilation systems among its slew of sustainable features. The micro-community is located near a train station, encouraging people to eschew driving in favor of walking and public transport.

New Rainier Vista points to a smarter future wherein homes generate the power they need, making them sustainable yet comfortable.
