Title: “New House” - Concept Home in the Center of San Francisco
Clever Homes designed a concept home, the New House, to demonstrate the possibilities for design and construction to meet the highest environmental standards while also satisfying stringent demands for health, comfort and cost. The purpose is twofold: 1) To counter the misunderstanding that green building cost is higher and quality is loser; 2) To move prospective home builders to action by showing a living example. The New House was set up in the center of San Francisco, raising widespread public awareness and functioning as an education tool. This house is available to individual home builders and developers for implementation. Furthermore it serves as an interactive classroom and showcase to put sustainable building in the reach of the general public.
