The RI-based Green Life Smart Life project is an expression of one family’s aspiration to prove that green living and technology could co-exist. The home reflects their desire to capture the incredible views of Narragansett Bay and the Newport Bridge, their dedication to integrated sustainable design that included durability measures to handle the harsh weather elements of New England, and their insistence on smart home technology that enabled them to live in a high-tech, high-touch, entertainment-driven environment.
GOING FOR LEED GOLD
The homeowners were dedicated to building the home to achieve LEED for Homes (LEED-H) certification, and despite the home’s impressive 4529 sq/ft of living space, the home achieved 92.5 points for a Gold certification from the US Green Build Council. From energy management to water conservation and from high performance building techniques to a systematic waste management plan, the builders and subcontractors worked together every step of the way to bring Gold to this home.
