This $4 million modernist home in an exclusive enclave of Los Angeles allows luxury and the environment to live together in harmony. The 4,057 square foot WIRED LivingHome is designed to attain at least a Gold rating from the USGBC LEED® for Homes Program. Consistent with its focus on sustainable design, LivingHomes and WIRED deconstructed rather than demolished the property’s existing house, reducing the amount of building materials sent to landfill. The home’s anticipated energy use is 36% more efficient than a conventional residence of a similar size. The home will also feature a forced hot air radiant heating and cooling system; recycled glass bathroom countertops; Heath ceramic tile; low-maintenance high-design ecological kitchen cabinetry; an environmentally friendly washer/dryer system that uses less water and energy; windows and doors constructed with recycled glass and aluminum; reclaimed redwood milled from old military barracks; FSC-certified exterior siding; tankless water heaters; and LED lights that consume less energy than conventional light bulbs.
