This green-build project shows that it’s possible to merge beauty, functionality and high standards for ecological building
The design process included a thorough vetting of all materials and products used – not only for energy efficiency and environmentally friendly production, but also for allergens, emissions during use, etc.
The clients were both busy professionals with a growing family, so all design solutions had to be family friendly. The harmony of the solution comes from making good use of the different materials, and integrating them thoughtfully throughout; from cabinets to windows and millwork, wood flooring, tiled showers and paint color.
The master bath is a tranquil haven with a luxurious shower and freestanding bath tub in a light-flooded corner. The color scheme picks up on the dark brown in the window trim and the green hues in the shower door glass is carried through the home in the other bathrooms’ tiles as well as the kitchen backsplash. The bathrooms also display practical details that make life easier, such as built in step stools for the children in the bathrooms.
This project was about creating a home that uses all eco friendly or environmentally conscious materials, while attending to the owners’ different preferences to create an overall coherent and pleasing aesthetic.
