District House to be featured at the GreenBuilt Home Tour
District House will be featured in this year's GreenBuilt Home Tour on July 28-29, 2018. The tour features exceptional, award-winning, and nationally-recognized homes throughout Illinois, which highlight attractive, affordable, and sustainable building practices.
During the annual two-day event, attendees learn ways the built environment contributes to a healthier community. The tour includes Illinois’ finest builders, designers and homeowners who have created healthy, energy saving green homes. All homes on the tour are third-party verified (or pending verification) to ensure they are built to national standards.
District House is in the final stages of securing Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, certification under the LEED for Homes program. According to the U.S. Green Building Council, “LEED-certified buildings are resource efficient. They use less water and energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.”
The design is a collaboration between Seattle-based The Miller Hull Partnership, LLP and Chicago-based Northworks Architects. “District House is a modern affirmation of the principles of the Prairie School of architecture. Deep projecting floor overhangs emphasize the horizontal while enhancing energy efficiency,” said Brian Court, Partner at Miller Hull.
This broad commitment to sustainability is not new for the project team. Miller Hull, the project’s design architect, has a reputation for high performance sustainable designs that actively engage their communities. Recently completed projects include the Bullitt Center in Seattle, which is widely cited as the greenest commercial building in the world. Project development partner, Campbell Coyle, has also developed a local reputation for sustainable projects, including Harper Court, among the most sustainable private sector projects in the City of Chicago.
