It's Friday, so why not take some time to enjoy a unique, green renovation. This home used to be an old, stucco box, but you'd hardly know it just by looking. Mr. Jeremy Levine gutted the whole place and gave the home a new lease on life. The interior of this North Eagle Rock renovation drowns in natural light because of the open layout and heavy use of windows. Also, the home has been outfitted with beautiful recycled red wood sliding sun screens, a passive thermal rock wall, solar PV system, rain water collection system, grey water recycling, concrete counters made with 50% fly ash, and the recycled wood ceiling, etc.
Just by looking at a few images here, you can tell an enormous amount of thought and detail went into getting this renovation right. It's quite incredible, really, and if you want to see more, make sure to catch some of the Renovation Nation videos from Planet Green up on YouTube.
