Fishtown, Philadelphia is situated near the water; and while you may be envisioning the typical east coast/Cape Cod style homes– think again. This town has got some serious LEED Certified things happening.
“Avant Garage” is one of the newer developments, with 4 units total and each average about 2100 square feet. Not to mention, these are reaching fast for Platinum certification. Postgreen Homes designed and built these sustainable houses after the zoning was already in place, which conversely included garages on both ends of the home.
In addition to their zoning constraints– the spaces have some major positives to the building shells. Triple paned windows, green roofs and rainwater collection are just a few of the ways this little Philly development is working towards being green.
