Clark Residence

This home represents the state of the art in ultra sustainable design.  It is a USGB LEED Platinum certified home that was designed and built by the integrated Palo Santo team.  The design is based on the principles that small is beautiful and passive systems are superior to active systems for long term sustainability.  It is a passive solar designed home which incorporates as many low embodied energy building materials and methods as possible.  These include adobe,  pumice-crete ®, earthen floors, and earthen plasters,  all of which use local and environmentally preferrable raw materials, with minimal energy inputs for production, transportation or long term maintenance.
