A new eco-friendly home design takes nature seriously

The floor of this master bathroom shower is comprised of stainless steel with a non-slip coating.

Beveled glass countertops and zebra cabinetry, accented by a rich purple wall, create a stunning kitchen design.

A barrel-vaulted ceiling adds visual interest in the combined dining and living area in this home. The soaring windows, however, offer the ultimate view.

This eco-friendly house is constructed of metal and glass, including the elevator located next to the staircase.

This environmentally friendly home design takes advantage of the breathtaking views of the Allegheny River.

This eco-friendly home design comes complete with solar panels, copper siding, a windmill and a gorgeous water view.

This master bedroom features a wall of windows with recessed blinds that come down from the ceiling.

Over time, the copper siding used on this eco-friendly home—a material chosen due to its low-maintenance factor—will develop a light green patina.

Fresh pops of color, such as the bright green staircase wall, can be found throughout this house.

An eye-catching windmill helps to generate the power used to operate this eco-friendly home.

The inviting entry of this eco-friendly home design is softened by a large area rug and lush greenery.

42 solar panels were installed on the roof of this eco-friendly home to help lower the utility costs.

All of this home’s mechanical essentials, including HVAC, water heater and a central vacuum system, are housed in one room.
