Green on 19 townhomes – multi family residence project with solar canopies by Jesse Bornstein Architecture
Green on 19 townhomes is a multi family residence project from Jesse Bornstein Architecture. The project occupies a typical infill site within Santa Monica, California’s semi-urban grid. Its design is a significant departure from the traditionally based neighborhood context. Green on 19 townhomes integrates green technologies and materials within a modern design sensibility. Further info about this project is after the jump.
Below are detail excerpt from Jesse Bornstein Architecture :
The project’s system technologies minimize adverse enviromental impact. The lighting system makes extensive use of fluorescents and LEDs. Water conserving features include low flow plumbing equipment and fixtures, 100% drought tolerant landscaping and drip irrigation. All rainwater is retained on site for irrigation use and urban runoff mitigation. HVAC equipment exceeds 90% efficiency and uses non-toxic refrigerant.
While solar canopies are the most outwardly expressive green element of the project, at the core of each townhome’s interior is an ethanol burning fireplace that is cassed in the same FSC-certified bamboo laminate that is project for cabinetry and flooring. These minimalist, double-sided, clean burning and energy efficient fireplaces provide separation between living and dining.
