Leed Platinum by the Bay

A certified LEED-H Platinum building by Butler Armsden Architects, the Tiburon Bay House features an innovative and sustainable landscape. Native lawn, permeable surfaces, and a gray water system were all integrated into the landscape design. Great care was taken to reuse existing materials and drought tolerant plants. Existing concrete was transformed into a new patio; no-mow lawn was used as a low-maintenance grass solution; and gabion walls were built from recycled materials.

very modern home with gabion driveway. Look at Tiburon Bay house on web site. Some of the house looks like it could be made from containers.
