Concord Green Home

2011 EcoHome Design Award Winner

Key to the successful design were the homeowner priorities of family health, energy performance, and optimizing the walk-to-town construction site. To maintain health and air quality, the home features a fresh air ventilation system with energy recovery, a whole house HEPA filtration system, radiant & radiator heating distribution, and low/no VOC materials. The home’s energy performance focuses on passive heating/cooling techniques, natural daylighting, an improved building envelope, and efficient mechanical systems, collectively achieving overall energy performance of 50% better than code. To address the site opportunities, the home utilizes a footprint that maximizes southern exposure in the rear while still capturing the park view in the front.

    The spectrum: Light to darkLight If you crave bright, sunny spaces bathed in natural light, you belong squarely on the light end of this style spectrum. Light lovers also tend to crave open-plan spaces, high ceilings and large windows with views – anything to create a serene, expansive sense of space. Light spaces are often white (even all-white) but you may also be drawn to pale washes of colour, soft pastels or milk-paint hues.Check out these 7 ways to open up your home to light
