A custom luxury and sustainble home that is LEED Platinum certified. The green-roofed, modern dream home by Maienza-Wilson Interior Design + Architecture is perched above Butterfly Beach in Montecito, California.
Sustainable features includes radiant floor heating, flat rooftops planted with drought-resistant grasses for passive cooling and photovoltaic solar panels hidden from view on the butterfly roof that provide enough electricity to operate the entire home.
Icynene spray foam provides insulation and a 5,000-gallon cistern is located underneath the building to store rainwater to irrigate the low-water-demand garden that has been designed to complement the Zen-like feeling of the home.
