This is a prototype apartment unit built using what is likely the only fabrication system on the market that can be scaled to construct mid-rise buildings. The system is called Sustainable Living Innovations, or SLI, and it was developed during the downturn of the last few years under the leadership of CollinsWoerman and three other firms, McKinstry, Lydig Construction, and DCI Engineers.
Seattle has its fair share of LEED Platinum homes, but this is the first LEED Platinum single-family home in the state of Washington outside of Seattle. The Bainbridge Island home, blending style and sustainability, was designed by Coates Design Architects for owners Ed and JoAnne Ellis, who wanted an exemplary, modern, green home.
Art Stable is an award-winning project in the Cascade neighborhood of South Lake Union in Seattle. Designed by Tom Kundig of Olson Kundig Architects and developed by Point32, Art Stable includes ground-floor commercial and six live-work lofts (of which only two remain on the market). The project was built on an urban infill site — formerly a horse stable — and cleverly incorporates some of its work-ranch history in the design.
I recently mentioned the construction of Greenfab‘s model home in Seattle, and that home is now complete. I think you’ll agree, it’s just as warm and handsome as the renderings. The six-module abode — on target for LEED Platinum and Built Green 5-Star certification — has 1,790 square feet with three bedrooms, two and three-quarters bathrooms, a separate mother-in-law space, a planted rooftop deck, and an urban chicken coop.
Greenfab, developer of well-designed, sustainable homes, just installed six modules in the Jackson Place neighborhood of Seattle for what’s expected to be the city’s first LEED Platinum modular home. The demonstration home is owned by Robert Humble of HyBrid, project architect and general contractor, and will target net-zero energy and Built Green 5-Star certification.
