The list of COTE (AIA Committee on the Environment) items was created to help understand how a project meets the needs of users and how it impacts the environment. The list focuses on best practices and high impact strategies for creating healthy places to live and work. Here are some ways this project measures up to the COTE list:
The home is walkable to downtown. The addition was kept to the human scale and character of the existing historic home and neighborhood.
A stormwater management plan helps prevent flooding.
The design allows plenty of natural light into the space. The addition is used for relaxation and healing. Interior materials, free of harmful chemicals, were specifically chosen.
