Dwell Development has designed a new home, located in Seattle, that features a cutting-edge combination of green technology, renewable energy and reclaimed materials. This building was designed to meet Built Green Emerald Star certification, and will be the first home of its kind in Seattle.
The building's roof and windows are placed and configured so as to maximize solar gain without compromising on appearance or aesthetic appeal. The home's electricity needs are met by a 6.6 Kilowatt photovoltaic array on the roof, while the building is expected to attain an HERS Score of zero, marking it out as a zero energy status building.
Dwell Development also took full advantage of locally available materials in the countertops, cabinets and tiles. Ultimately, this is a home that seamlessly combines aesthetic appeal and eco-friendly features.
