Concord Green Home

2011 EcoHome Design Award Winner

Key to the successful design were the homeowner priorities of family health, energy performance, and optimizing the walk-to-town construction site. To maintain health and air quality, the home features a fresh air ventilation system with energy recovery, a whole house HEPA filtration system, radiant & radiator heating distribution, and low/no VOC materials. The home’s energy performance focuses on passive heating/cooling techniques, natural daylighting, an improved building envelope, and efficient mechanical systems, collectively achieving overall energy performance of 50% better than code. To address the site opportunities, the home utilizes a footprint that maximizes southern exposure in the rear while still capturing the park view in the front.

It's standard 1x6 plus the pediment, plus a darker trim color that provides more visual weight.

You are correct. It is a boxwood, left a little unclipped for a more textured look against all of the crisp exterior.

Hello jshipley.

I sourced this beautiful reproduction lantern from Scofield Historic Lighting. Their selections and finishes are true to the historic aesthetic which I had envisioned for the home.

Please give the good folks at Scofield my best if you contact them.

Cheers,

You can replicate the uniform blue stone look with ceramic tile - they've come a long way in making wonderful ceramic tile - see if you have a Prosource Floors near you.

Bluestone. More information about the details of this home are all included in the text of the houzz tour and in the image tags:

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The front door opens into a hallway that extends from the front of the house to the back, providing a view to the backyard as well as a straight line to a door that leads to the patio. "It's a 'stone runner' that connects the front yard to the backyard," Horowitz explains. In fact, the same bluestone is used in the form of pavers on the front walk, covers the hallway, and then continues out on to the patio. This creates a strong connection from the front yard through the house and out to the back yard.

Friday after work: Unplug. Save energy and recharge your own batteries by spending Friday evening without your usual tech devices. Take advantage of the longer days by taking a small snack, a book and a refreshing drink outdoors to savor the last few moments of light. No yard? Hit up your local park. Later, dust off decks of cards, board games and neglected craft projects for an evening of old-school fun.
Arrange doors and windows to circulate indoor air. These doors align to catch the prevailing winds and cool this home. Moving air is an important feature of mentally refreshing biophilic spaces.
