Front entrance of a sustainable traditional home in Studio City, designed by Los Angeles architecture firm Tim Barber Ltd. The home received the United States Green Building Council's LEED AP Gold rating.

Sustainable Home

Studio City, California

When this project came along, Tim and director of design Kirk Snyder had recently earned LEED accreditations and were itching to create a LEED-certified Traditional house. Our client jumped at the opportunity to build a sustainable home.

Creative design strategy packed a lot of house into approximately 5,000 square feet. The downstairs includes a living room, dining room, kitchen, family room, guest suite, laundry, mudroom and billiard room. Upstairs, is a master suite, three ensuite bedrooms, an office and an upstairs family room. Entertaining is encouraged with a deep front porch and an expansive rear porch with dining area, built-in BBQ, and a sitting area near an outdoor fireplace. The resort-like rear yard provides a pool with a waterslide, spa, sport court and cabana. 

Green features include solar panels, a rain cistern, a grey water tank, an air purification system, water filtration and state-of-the-art insulation. The project was awarded a LEED Gold status by the U. S. Green Building Council and, most importantly, our client and her family are thrilled with their new home.
