By • Jun 5, 2013 •  Selected Work 

Eric Odor and Chris Meyer from SALA Architects designed the Urban Green project.

This modern 2,250 square foot, three bedroom, two bathroom home is located in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA.

Total building costs for this house come in around the $500,000 mark, including unfinished basement and detached garage.

Urban Green by SALA Architects:

“This LEED for Homes, 2,250 square foot, three bedroom house with detached garage is nestled into a 42-foot by 128-foot infill lot in the Linden Hills neighborhood. It features an eclectic blend of traditional and contemporary elements that weave it into the existing neighborhood fabric while at the same time addressing the client’s desire for a more modern plan and sustainable living.

Sustainable components:

Passive solar heating and daylighting, natural ventilation due to the narrow building profile and open plan, high-efficiency appliances, high-efficiency dual-stage furnace, dual-flush toilets and low-flow faucets, bamboo floors, composite fiber-cement siding, shell durability walk-through, blower door-performance testing.”
