Dominick R. Pilla Associates (DRPILLA) recently completed the first LEED for Homes Gold certified home in Sag Harbor, NY. DRPILLA combined modern architectural design with environmental building strategies to produce this high-performance 8,000 square foot bay front residence. Special consideration was given to site sustainability, water efficiency and energy-efficient construction. The most notable design features that characterize this private residence as a high-performance home include a 10-KW photovoltaic rooftop system, a drought-tolerant, indigenous plant landscape design, an extremely efficient geothermal mechanical/electrical system, a solar thermal system for domestic hot water and the swimming pool, and a blend of eco-friendly design strategies ranging from using reclaimed cypress siding to separating, recycling and diverting up to 75% of demolition and construction debris from the landfill.
