The Margarido Sustainable House Design in California

This stunning energy efficient modern house design is the first custom home in the US to be LEED-H Platinum certified and GreenPoint Rated. Called as the Margarido House, this green house design is completed in 2009 and is nestled in the Oakland Hills on a double-sized 13,000 sq. ft. multi-layer lot overlooking San Francisco Bay, California. This Margarido House features extensive green building components such as eco-friendly Western Red Cedar siding, a planted green roof garden and deck, on-site rain and ground water reclamation, in-floor hydronic heating, and solar electric and solar thermal (hot water) systems. The house is 55 percent more energy efficient than California’s Title 24 energy standards.

This sustainable house design has over 4,600 sq. ft. on two levels, the new five-bedroom, five-bath masterpiece features designer finishes throughout, and an open floor plan that takes full advantage of the breathtaking views. The Margarido House has become a symbol of the movement in high design, high sustainability, collaboration and community. Over 6,000 designers, architects, builders and homeowners have toured the home to learn about sustainability and high design.
