Green home builder Dwell Development is taking Seattle by storm! After completing several stunning net-zero projects, including this 5-Star Built Green home in Mount Baker, the company has unveiled another two energy-efficient homes nestled in Georgetown, one of Seattle’s oldest and most eclectic neighborhoods.

Both residences feature 12-inch thick walls for optimal thermal insulation, solar-ready rooftop configurations, electric vehicle charging units, and triple-glazed windows. Thanks to these sustainable features, the homes are now targeting 5-star Built Green certification and net zero, highest levels of green building certification. Each is 2500 square feet and includes three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, alley access to a two-car garage and an open-plan layout that maximizes the amount of natural light.

The architects drew inspiration from the industrial aesthetic of the neighborhood and its manufacturing tradition. The open-plan layout references airplane hangars, while reclaimed wood accents on the exterior façade act as a nod to the warehouse typology still present in Georgetown.
