A Good, Hard Look at Venice's Brooks Home

New, 4 comments

Inhabitat, the green architecture blog, is gushing over Venice's Brooks Avenue House: "Vancouver-based architecture firm Bricault Design’s vegetation-clad house in Venice, California is a sexy study in green. The mod abode incorporates sustainable design in a new residential addition that features a lush living wall on three sides of the house and a breezy roof garden perfect for relaxing in the sun." The eco-design came after a 1,700 square feet addition was glued on to a 2,000 square foot home. The home features solar panels, low-flush toilets, camel-like plants, and a spiral staircase that helps negate the need for air-conditioning. [Inhabitat]
