Charity Works Greenhouse Family Room

Conferred a 2013 Exceptional Design Award from Fairfax County, this new home in McLean demonstrates the owner’s commitment to sustainable building practice. It shows that green design can also be great design. It’s the first carbon neutral home on the East Coast, and it is LEED Platinum Certified. It includes active and passive solar systems, geothermal heating and cooling, a rainwater collection system, a green roof, and an innovative building envelope to help achieve the sustainability goals. .
