Innovative Home: Award Winning Green Photo 01

Mixing cost-efficiency with eco-friendly design, this Texas home is the first dwelling in the Lone Star state to garner the prestigious LEED for Homes Platinum rating. After his own home received one of the highest Home Energy Rating System (HERS) scores in North Texas, it was no surprise that Gary Olp, Principal of the Dallas-Based firm GGO Architects, became interested in designing a dwelling to be submitted for certification in the U.S. Green Building Council's (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental; Design (LEED) for homes program.
