    Urban Green

    Design by Eric Odor, AIA, LEED AP
    with Chris Meyer


    This LEED for Homes, 2,250-square-foot, three-bedroom house with detached garage is nestled into an 42-foot by 128-foot infill lot in the Linden Hills neighborhood of Minneapolis. It features an eclectic blend of traditional and contemporary elements that weave it into the existing neighborhood fabric while at the same time addressing the client’s desire for a more modern plan and sustainable living.

    Sustainable Components:

    Passive solar heating and daylighting
    Natural ventilation due to the narrow building profile and open plan
    High-efficiency appliances
    High-efficiency dual-stage furnace
    Dual-flush toilets and low-flow faucets
    Bamboo floors
    Composite fiber-cement siding
    Shell durability walk-through
    Blower door-performance testing
