Rumination: What Would the Ideal ‘Green’ Home Feel and Look Like?
As an experiment in green building design and clean tech implementation, I spent a couple of weekends planning, designing, modeling, and drawing two homes for environmental sustainability and self-reliance. These homes incorporate off-the-shelf technologies and green building techniques to maximize low energy, low waste, and low consumption footprints. They are also designed for interaction with nature and unique architectural interest. The video tour flies through and around the homes and ends with a listing of house systems and equipment. The Geode House (http://youtu.be/ieQ6JC7JyeM) and the Tenx House (http://youtu.be/xQ6ftwliCH0) are dedicated to my father’s memory who was a ‘green’ architect before we knew what that was.
