Medici Architects partnered with Seattle-based sustainable developer Dwell Development on a 5-Star Built Green Home in Downtown Kirkland (Seattle). The residence is 3,900 square feet and the designer and developer choose to use energy efficient techniques paired with reclaimed materials, making it a truly sustainable home.
Each of Dwell Development’s projects accommodates net-zero energy usage, including solar rooftop panels, advanced framing, high impact insulation, triple-glazed windows, and a heat recovery ventilation system.
All of the building materials were reclaimed, repurposed, and/or sustainable, giving the exterior its unique look.
It even has a rooftop deck!
They didn’t use any carpet inside the home, only wood and polished concrete.
The interior is flooded with daylight thanks to all of the triple-glazed windows that are located throughout every room, especially the public level which houses the kitchen, dining, and living rooms. That’s located on the top floor giving everyone the best views.
Reclaimed wood cut into tiles covers the wall behind the open stairwell.
