Elegant + Eco-Friendly Appleton Residence in Venice, California

Elegant + Eco-Friendly Appleton Residence in Venice, California | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it
Appleton is an elegant eco-friendly residence located in California. It features an uncluttered interior, connecting the inhabitants with the courtyard.

The orientation of the house was thought out to maximize passive solar design and natural ventilation. Every room is connected to the courtyard, allowing inhabitants to move freely from inside to outside. The use of natural materials softens the contemporary lines of the overall design, highlighting the connection to the exterior.

Ecologia Montréal: a contemporary LEED Platinum home by Gervais Fortin | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

Ecologia Montréal, designed by Gervais Fortin, is the first single dweling home in Montreal, Canada aiming for a Platinum LEED certification.

The owner, in collaboration of the Ecologia Foundation, had the objective to reduce the home's ecological footprint by using healthy, local and non-toxic materials. The team demonstrated that it’s possible to build an ecological house without sacrificing good, contemporary design. All the materials were hand-picked from the most ecoresponsible suppliers of Quebec and featured a combination of exposed beams, large windows and an inner courtyard, creating a cozy and modern living space.

In addition to utilizing a geothermal system, he structure of the house is built with insulating concrete forms, mostly constituted of 100% recycled materials. As for the concrete used for the structure and as thermal mass, concrete contains 39% recycled materials. Ideal in an urban setting, a green roof completes it all.

Ecologia Montréal is the first house in Quebec to integrate the BioGeometry™ science, to control electromagnetic fields, to consider the energy of the earth and to infuse domestic water. The combination of all these factors harmonize the emotional, vital and spiritual levels of the home and its occupants...
