Living Homes, Future Plans & Opera
You can tour the newest LivingHome — the first home ever to be certified LEED Platinum in Newport Beach from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. It’s not for sale, but you can see first-hand what a world-class modern, sustainable home looks and feels like. Designed by KieranTimberlake, the 2008 AIA Firm of the Year and works towards the “Z6” environmental goals of all LivingHomes: zero energy, zero water, zero indoor emissions, zero waste, zero carbon, and zero ignorance. Some of the sustainable features that it incorporates are recycled steel and timber-efficient engineered lumber; a central vacuum system; bio-composite wood siding, recycled glass tiles, blown-in insulation, and high performance windows with recycled frames; photovoltaics to create power; and water-saving features, such as low-flow water fixtures and dual flush toilets, and integrated grey-water system. Light bites by True Food Kitchen. You must RSVP here to tour the open house; the location will be sent once registration is confirmed.
