From the AIA San Francisco Living: Home Tours comes Glen Park residence. The owner is also the architect, and a LEED-certified senior associate at Sasiki. It’s a good thing too because this project would have depended on a lot of patience by a client.
After three variances and about 5 years of work this in-fill house was rewarded with the 2008 Best Custom Home under 5,000 square feet. Take a look at the photos to see why.
Sustainable features include radiant floor heating from a condensing gas boiler, Energy Star appliances, bamboo floors and cabinetry, low VOC paints, 6-inch studs allowing greater insulation, and a membrane cool roof that surpasses the local standards. Read post in Inhabitat.
