Coates Design proved that sustainability can work hand in hand with a modern and innovative design. Ellis Residence, situated on Bainbridge Island in Washington State, is the first LEED Platinum home outside Seattle. The house offers a 180 degree view of the magnificent Puget Sound and City of Seattle.
The amazing 70% energy consumption reduction can be achieved by several simple but smart features: rain water collection cisterns, a vegetated roof, radiant floor heating, solar hot water, site-milled wood trim, geothermal heat, triple-glazed windows and heat-recovery technologies. All these make Ellis Residence an eco-friendly house, but also a cozy, modern home.
