New LEED LivingHome for Los Altos

Kappe-multifamily-day

Architect Ray Kappe designed the first (and now iconic) LivingHome in Santa Monica, and now, he has a new multifamily design that LivingHomes will prefabricate for a site in Los Altos, California.  The project includes three attached units, of which, two units will have three bedrooms and three bathrooms and one unit will have one bedroom and one bathroom.  One of the units will be owner occupied, one will be low-income, and the other will be a standard rental.  All of them will be green.

Certainly, multifamily prefab is the next frontier, so we'll keep tabs on the construction and completion of this projects.  The homes will include abundant interior natural light, custom interior planters, outdoor deck space, and a LEED Gold level environmental program.  LivingHomes announced the 3,864 square-foot project on their new blog, the LivingHomes Blog, on July 1, 2009.

    Looks great, very modern. Multi family commune and apartment units sound like a great idea. A couple of families in one building is a lot more efficient than everyone building their own home.
