Text description provided by the architects. A Skillful Fusion of Sustainable Features & Reclaimed Materials
Dwell Development LLC, a Seattle-based sustainable residential developer, is pleased to introduce the completion of a 5-Star Built Green Home in Downtown Kirkland.
As the only residential developer in Seattle that exclusively builds Built Green 5-Star certified homes, the Dwell Development team decided to cross the Lake with their newest project to up the ante for sustainable building on the Eastside. The 3,900 square-foot home is the result of a conscious and skillful blend of energy efficient building techniques and reclaimed materials.
Dwell Development builds high performance homes to encourage the evolution of sustainable building standards and leave traditional methods behind. All homes are built to accommodate net-zero energy usage, which include solar-ready rooftop configurations, advanced framing, high impact insulation, triple- glazed windows, and heat recovery ventilation systems.
Environmentally conscious elements are integrated into the design throughout the building process from framing to final interior touches.Unique reclaimed materials are carefully sought out for exterior siding, floors, countertops and tile.
The dynamic mix of reclaimed materials and modern design make this green home one-of-a-kind and sets the bar high for residential development on the Eastside. Located just east of Market in Downtown Kirkland, an area of the Eastside that has gone through a dramatic transformation in recent years becoming one the hottest markets in King County, make this green home a particularly attractive investment.
The prime location speaks to Dwell Development’s thoughtful approach to residential building; selecting pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods with a lot to offer residents. The waterfront location combined with an array of new boutiques, restaurants, tech companies and parks make Kirkland a desirable area to raise a family.
