The porch of this eco-friendly home is made from naturally sourced concrete and marble. To create a focal point, designers installed a unique stone statue that, when hit by the uplighting, resembles a piece of gold. Surrounding this statue is stone, eliminating the home's need for irrigation.
Sparse desert plants and stone require little water, reducing this home's footprint on the land. To give the bare space some ornamentation, designers added a stone swirl in the yard, providing a fun focal point for the space.
Whatever could be salvaged and reused was incorporated into the new design. The use of reclaimed wood throughout creates an inviting space for browsing, reading, exploring and dining. Overall, there was a significant reduction in the carbon footprint of the project, with low greenhouse gas emissions related to construction and transportation of materials.
By bumping out the upper level drawers and reducing the footprint of the lower cabinets, designer Bruce Snell created more storage and room to stand in thisnarrow bathroom. Nickel finishes on the Art-Deco inspired cabinets adds a sleek look.
