Energy-Efficient Green Homes

AOME Architects, a Seattle-based full-service architecture firm, from inception has been a leader in creating cost effective energy-efficient homes that are practical and showcase exceptional design. Our approach produces an environmentally sensitive design that minimizes the ecological footprint while providing luxurious, functional and pragmatic living spaces.

Energy efficient green homes can be quite elegant
This ‘green home,’ now under construction, features of this home include geothermal wells for heating and cooling, including the pool, rooftop solar panels with battery backup, rain water harvesting and efficient insulation and glazing throughout, exceeding energy code requirements.

The benefits of well-designed energy-efficient homes are plentiful. Firstly, they help reduce energy consumption, resulting in lower utility bills. But AOME doesn’t stop there. It is important to know that not every energy efficiency decision leads to long-term savings for homeowners. AOME helps their clients assess both costs and benefits. Secondly, these homes contribute to a healthier indoor environment by using materials and technologies that enhance air quality. 

Sustainable construction techniques are also embraced by AOME Architects. We employ practices which maximize natural light and heat, reducing the need for artificial lighting and heating. For interested clients, we have incorporated geothermal heating and air conditioning sources, rainwater harvesting systems and implemented green roofs to promote water conservation and reduce stormwater runoff.

In short, our commitment to these principles not only benefits homeowners but also contributes to a healthier environment. We set the standard for custom residential architecture while prioritizing the well-being of both occupants and the environment.
