Green Builder Media has teamed up with LA-based builder Structure Home to create the VISION House Los Angeles, a research and training demonstration house program that will provide builders, remodelers, designers, and consumers with essential green building information relating to both new construction and retrofit/remodeling. The home, located in Pacific Palisades, will be an example of a high-performance infill project in an established urban setting.
The VISION House Los Angeles will focus on the newly adopted CalGreen code, emphasizing optimized performance, durability, energy efficiency, water conservation, indoor air quality, efficient systems, and sustainable materials. The project team will host a wide variety of educational, promotional, and community-focused events during and after construction of the home.
“We’re excited about the launch of the VISION House Los Angeles, the latest in Green Builder Media’s VISION House Series,” says Sara Gutterman, CEO of Green Builder Media. “This project provides us with a special opportunity to showcase cutting edge sustainable systems as well as the CalGreen code, which we believe is the harbinger of change to come in codes throughout the country.”
“The VISION House Los Angeles will allow us to learn, educate, and demonstrate a better way to live in our homes. The project will address important issues facing our community, our culture, and the planet,” says Robert Kleiman, cofounder of Structure Home.
