Ellis Residence (LEED Platinum certified)
This LEED Platinum home exemplifies that latest in green building and sustainable design techniques. Perched high upon the Yeomalt Bluff, this home enjoys a commanding 180-degree view of the Puget Sound and Seattle. In comparison to an average North American home, it features a 70% energy-use reduction through the use of geothermal heat, photovoltaic energy collection, solar hot water, thermal massing, and heat-recovery technologies. Key features include: rainwater collection cisterns, radiant floor heating, site-milled wood trim, triple-glazed windows and a vegetated roof. The Ellis Residence shows that sustainability and a love of modern design aren't mutually exclusive. "We wanted to prove that modern, gracious residential design could encompass local environmental concerns and state-of-the-art energy efficiency," said Joanne Ellis. "Matthew and his team far exceeded our goals."
