This unique single family residential house in New Orleans also caught the eye of the AIA. Developed for residents of the Lower Ninth Ward in New Orleans, No.9 House
is a prototype modular home that can be easily customized to meet the resident's needs. It has achieved a LEED Platinum rating, thanks to the inclusion of good insulation, non-toxic materials, and efficient systems.
All of the projects the AIA chose show remarkable achievements in the areas of community, bioclimatic design, daylighting and air quality, good use of healthy materials, and great design for adaptability, versatility, and durability. In other words, everything that you would be looking for in a kick ass green architecture project.
