A little over a year ago, I wrote about this Green Concept Home in Bellevue, Washington. The modern residence was finished under budget and according to schedule, and the owners are now working on obtaining LEED for Homes and Built Green certification. Modus V Studio Architects designed and built Green Concept Home with a number of noteworthy green elements.
The 2,840 square foot home has no-VOC paints, tankless water heating, durable metal roofing, rainwater collection, an HRV, radiant heat floors, bamboo floors, low-flow fixtures, recycled-content counters, and Energy Star appliances.
The Green Concept Home was built with SIPs walls and roofing, while the roof is topped with an evacuated glass-tube system for all domestic hot water heating. It’s also pre-wired for a future solar photovoltaic system that can clip on to the standing seams.
Owner Millie Leung told Jetson Green in an email that the home has great natural lighting, so there’s rarely a need for artificial lights during the day. Leung also said visitors love the radiant heat floors.
All together, Green Concept Home has a master suite, two kids’ bedrooms, one guest bedroom, two bathrooms, a home office, a laundry and mechanical room, and an open space for the kitchen, dining, and living area.
