http://goathouse.blogspot.com/2014/02/sustainable-home-in-connecticut-by-joeb.html
In 2010, Joeb Moore + partners designed a sustainable home completely, this sustainable home is called the 173 Park Street Residence in New Canaan, Fairfield, Connecticut.

Sustainable home project was implemented above 5300 square foot to this contemporary home styled. Luxurious shape and fresh sensed interior are very interesting points of the home. Beside those two points, sustainability was applied proudly to increase the home value.




173 Park Street Residence by Prutting & Company:

Philosophy and Goals

The goal of the townhouse is to construct a “state of the art” building, incorporating contemporary and “green” technologies and products directed by world-class design.  By incorporating these features with a prime location in the heart of downtown New Canaan, this project caters to the luxury home consumer valuing in-town convenience with modern amenities and features.

Specialties

This project has a modern, flexible floor plan with all the amenities.  There is a large, multifunctional lower level with a zoned apartment.  Amenities include three fireplaces, central vacuum and high-performance appliances, and a spa master bath including a steam sauna and a whirlpool.  This project also has an extensive roof top lifestyle program including an exterior deck with a hot tub, cookout center and a fireplace.  There is an elevator encouraging this program which travels from the lower level to roof top.

Construction

The building is supported by a concrete foundation with a structural steel frame and poured concrete decks. There is also interior steel and engineered lumber wall framing.  The modern geometric exterior is achieved by zinc panels and cedar wood wall cladding and detailing.

Mechanical

The townhouse achieved LEED Silver certification by its use of several “green” technologies including thermal massing radiant floors with central air conditioning.  The use of photovoltaics supplements electric and solar-heated water.  Water is also recycled through a roof water collection system and sprinkler system. Lutron lighting control systems and wiring for motorized window treatments create a comfortable living environment in addition to the alarm system and stereo system incorporated into the project.

Windows & Doors

Natural lighting is also factored into the project as a means of being ecologically responsible. High performance glazing is used with European Lift & Slide door unites and casement windows. Also incorporated into the project are a roof sky window, custom 2” interior doors, and high grade hardware.

Millwork & Finishes

The interior detailing and crisp joinery gives a clean, modern look using natural finished Sycamore Millwork, European ceramic/porcelain tiles, Caesarstone countertops, and European oak engineered wood flooring.

Landscape

Central to creating a specialty home is the well designed garden and hardscape plan, with custom designed decks, patios, water features, and a fountain.

Summary

This 5,300 square foot home with a cost of $4 million is a smashing, elegant 21st century building with intelligent and well-conceived design.”

The Willow House in Singapore with Garden Roof
singapore sustainable home
Singapore base architect, Guz Architects has developed a contemporary house located in Singapore where gets tropical area and the sun always lights along years in this location.
This Singapore house built for a family who needs fresh air and wind experience. This house tries to take advantages of the blowing wind by doing the roof construction for allowing the rough wind flows inside. Almost of Guz Architects's creation places green rooftop, luxurious pool and wonderful garden. The unique glass pool with full of water decorates garden and able to be enjoyed from terrace. The Willow House also put them down to decorate exterior for supporting environment healthy. Sustainability for a long time house and the plants included maximally as possible constitute aspects that being a characteristic of the architect's design. Other houses also apply this concern as well as Rattan House that it applies special garden and environmentally friendly material, Tanga House that planting on rooftop and wonderful pool beautify the exterior also interior, Fish House that interior and exterior have adaptability to environment and Meera Sky Garden House that being inspirational house for green home design.

The Willow House in Singapore by Guz Architects:

“We tried to take advantage of it’s hilltop position by opening up the building plan to make the most of the prevailing breezes and of what little wind there is in Singapore.
Orientation and massing of the house was instrumental in encouraging those breezes.
We always wanted this to be a home with soul, so designing spaces where a family could live together and interact was always part of the brief, and hopefully the design reflects this. We have tried to draw nature in as much as we can in the relatively dense urban environment of Singapore.”

Rattan House in Singapore by Guz Architects
Rattan House in Singapore by Guz ArchitectsContemporary home is equipped with the ability to adapt to the environment have been completed by Guz Architects.
Rattan House in Singapore by Guz Architects, this house built to attract fresh experience for living and can be used as an example or idea of an environmentally friendly home inspiration. Simple application of innovation, such as the implementing of passive energy, is very useful for the sake of convenience. In my opinion, Guz Architects has always designed inspirational homes, absolutely environmentally friendly homes design that you can see the tag of Guz Architects. Pictures bellow courtesy of Guz Architects represent the amazing sustainable work or Rattan House.

Rattan House in Singapore by Guz Architects:

“The rattan house was conceived to make the most of what is a relatively condensed site in Singapore’s “good class bungalow” district; with buildings all around and little breeze. The L-shaped plan was designed to make the most of the views and funnel the breezes throughout the house.Within this we tried to create gardens and green areas to not only passively cool the house, but also to provide greenery and a sense of space which all occupants could share. The house was completed on a very low budget (for Singapore) of less than S$1m.Rattan screens were used along the main entrance hall of the house to provide privacy, yet still allow the air to flow through.”

Josh Wynne Construction frim Florida has completed The Power Haus.
This contemporary house is located in Sarasota, Florida, USA. Sustainable implementation in producing energy is more than its consumption annually this house achieves a minus 22 HERS index. Caused of that point, the power haus is labeled as the lowest recorded by Energy Star and the DOE Builder's Challenge. At least, the Power Haus receives top LEED Home Platinum certified, top of the FGBC standard and NAHB’s National Green Building Standard.

The Power Haus by Josh Wynne Construction:

"Power Haus was designed to exceed every standard in green construction today while maintaining the clients’ desired aesthetic and comfort requirements. It is a shining example of the level of performance and sustainability that can be achieved while maintaining an high standard of quality and comfort.

Power Haus received a minus 22 HERS index, the lowest ever recorded by Energy Star and the DOE Builder’s Challenge. It is the highest scoring LEED for Homes Platinum ever certified (pending verification). Power Haus is also at the top of the FGBC standard and NAHB’s National Green Building Standard.

Design plays a huge part in Power Haus’ performance and livability. Passive ventilation, passive cooling and passive lighting go hand in hand with the desired ability to open the home to the expansive views of the hardwood swamp upon which the home is situated. In many ways, it is difficult to determine the line between indoors and out. That is quite difficult to accomplish in the hot, moist climate of the central west coast of Florida. Since few materials are up to the challenge presented by this climate, product specification and construction techniques were very important. Polished concrete floors, clay walls over mold resistant drywall, native cypress timbers used for doors, trim, cabinets and roof framing all lend to the ‘Contemporary Florida Cracker’ vernacular while offering stellar performance against the elements.

Power Haus is a beautiful home that compromises nothing while managing to shatter the ceilings perceived to exist in luxury green home building."
