This is a project called Sustainable Stuart – the name comes from its location on Stuart Street – by Imagine Infill in Denver, Colorado. It features two, attached, single-family homes, and we have pictures of one of the homes, 3288 Stuart. 3288 Stuart received LEED Gold, EPA Indoor AirPlus, and Energy Star certifications.
Jonathan Alpert, founder of Imagine Infill, shared his project with us this week. With his new company, Alpert’s trying to build “urban, energy efficient and highly stylized homes for cultural creatives and city dwellers.”
3288 Stuart delivers energy efficiency with a super-insulated envelope, Energy Star windows and appliances, high performance lighting, window placement optimized for cross-ventilation, and a high-efficiency furnace and water heater.
The home also has on-site solar, water-efficient fixtures, drought-tolerant landscaping, low-VOC paints and finishes, and recycled content products.
Sustainable Stuart includes about 5,600 square feet total (2,873 sf in one unit and 2,765 sf in the other). It was designed by Sexton Lawton with an open layout, modern style, and abundant daylight. Carter Customs contracted on the project; the construction costs came in at about $160 per square foot.
I first learned about Sustainable Stuart through our new green home submission form. If you have a great home project or renovation, feel free to submit it to the editors for potential publication.
