East Boulder LEED | by Boulder, Colorado Architects – Fanas Architecture

This remodel addition in East Boulder was the first LEED certified remodel in the state of Colorado. All other architects who were interviewed told the clients that the existing house was a ‘scraper’ – our architects thought otherwise. The existing house was converted in to the Guest & Shop wing, while a new addition houses the living, kitchen, and new master suite. The main exterior material, Durisol, is a recycled content unit, provide a solid thermal mass wall & insulation. The home features both hot water thermal panels, photovoltaic panels, and a revitalized south-facing trom wall, providing year round heat to the adjacent wood shop.
