Gradients of Green is a LEED-Platinum certified single family home that referenced the WELL Building Standard in its design. As the personal residence of Laura Britt, ASID, owner and principal of Laura Britt Design, the objective was to implement both environmental and health and wellness aspects of sustainability in a residential space for the family. The building was also intended to serve as a role model for universal design/accessibility in residential architecture, and to be an example of a home showcasing thoughtful ‘visitability.’
Utilizing various healthy and sustainable design strategies in the architecture, spatial layout, and overall product selection, the project created a healthy building, inside and out, with strong visual connection between key interior areas and easy access to outside from the main public and private areas.
