Houzz at a GlanceWho lives here: John Sparano and Anne Mooney of Sparano + Mooney Architecture and their twin daughtersLocation: Emigration Canyon, near Salt Lake CitySize: 2,500 square feet (232 square meters); three bedrooms, two bathroomsYear built: 2009“As soon as we had the land, it felt like home,” architect and homeowner Anne Mooney says. “As architects we like to spend time on the site during the design process — in different times of the day and night — and experience the different seasons. The house feels dramatically different in the winter when the site is covered with snow and in the summer surrounded by the lushness of the surrounding woods. My favorite time is the fall, when the colors match the house and it feels really embedded into its canyon setting.” She and husband John Sparano analyzed the site over the course of a year, tracking the summer and winter solstices and studying the environment in each season. “Sustainable design is integral to the project, beginning with the relatively small footprint of the house, which was built at the minimum allowed,” Mooney says.Thanks to its fire-resistant exterior and compact footprint, the home earned the state’s first LEED-H Silver certification. The points system rates the design and construction of buildings based on their sustainability and adherence to environmentally friendly guidelines.What’s LEED All About, Anyway?
