Dwell Development Design + Build, a firm in Washington state focusing on urban infill development, recently completed these four homes located at 1105 23rd Avenue South in Seattle. Targeted to exceed 5-star Built Green certification, the modern homes at 1105 Dwell are being offered for sale from $479,000. Sizes vary from 1,647 to 1,772 square feet.
As modeled, 1105 Dwell homes should outperform code homes by about 45% on energy consumption. But your everyday homeowner may not understand what this means, so Dwell Development is using the above Environmental Facts Label to communicate the potential for energy and water savings (click to enlarge).
The project was built â€œas green as possible without any sacrifice in design or livability,â€ according to a statement by the developer in an email to Jetson Green.
1105 Dwell homes were constructed with SIPs, in-floor radiant heat, recycled glass tile, rift cut oak flooring, roof gardens, Energy Star appliances, tankless hot water, low-VOC paints and finishes, heat recovery ventilation, and rainwater collection.
