This net-zero home designed for two Boulder, CO environmental attorneys by HMH Architecture & Interiors is built with sustainable materials throughout. The window design optimizes the amount of sunlight that comes in to keep the home cool in the summer and warm in the winter, while a 10kW rooftop solar array and hot water solar system produces 140 percent of the home’s energy every year. The excess power is sold back to Xcel Energy, which will eventually help pay off the initial investment. A beautiful showcase of cutting edge solar technology and green materials, the home is warm and livable – an essential component of this impressive design.

    I prefer a warmer design. This modern design feels cold and uncomfortable. Also, I know this is a single family home, but I\\\’d love to see a row house design with multi-use below. That would address not only energy efficiency but also social and environmental design. The biggest challenge facing American design today is sprawl. This doesn\\\’t address that at all.
