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

New Green Home

When this project came along, Tim and two project managers 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.
