Last June we announced the zHome community designed by David Vandervort Architects, a target zero-energy community in Washington that is one of many springing up across the country, changing the way communities are planned and developed.  Since World War II spawned the era of suburban living, the Levittown model has been the trajectory along which so many communities across the country have gone.  Now with sustainability and ecologically conscious design being at the forefront of many architects’ practices, it makes perfect sense for whole communities to take the leap as well.  But what does that mean for the lifestyles of its residents?  And does this make an exclusive neighborhood where only some are willing or able to comply. Follow us after the break for more.

Situated in the Issaquah Highlands just east of Seattle, zHome is envisioned as a ten unit, net zero energy and net zero carbon town home community. The 0.4-acre site is part of a larger parcel located at the entrance to the Highlands neighborhood. The larger parcel was planned as a combined project including the zHome site along with a mixed-use project that is being constructed by the YWCA.
