Sustainability and low energy consumption are 2 factors that are becoming more and more important for modern architects, and it’s not hard to understand why once we acknowledge what these elements bring to the table. A sustainable home is usually built using reclaimed materials and features technologies that allows it to boast a certain degree of energy independence. This incredible home in Vancouver was created by an architect named Oliver Lang, who collaborated with a local business owner called Martin Warren. The architect works at a company called Lang Wilson Practice in Architecture Culture (LWPAC), while the business owner is affiliated with the Vanglo Sustainable Construction Group.
The home offers 2,250 square feet of living space, and it can be found within a neighborhood called Mount Pleasant, at 135 East 17 Avenue. The abode that could be found at this location previously was no longer habitable so it had to be torn down, but in order to respect the idea of sustainability, the builders sent 95% of the resulting waste material to a special plant for recycling.
This modern ENERGY STAR® open concept residence was built to be low maintenance and features low energy consumption throughout the year. Its roof requires no maintenance at all and is made out of sturdy metal, while its floors were created using concrete for a plus of sturdiness and reliability. Flaunting 3 levels as well as spacious and welcoming interiors, this home is undoubtedly one of the most incredible abodes in Mount Pleasant.
