old venice new venice

I've titled this, old venice new venice, because the architect has done such a fantastic job preserving the old venice charm found in the early beach cottages built back in the twenties.  To this curb appeal of the one story bungalow she has included the new architectural look most new residences in venice are going with, square linear design with smooth stucco, metal doors and windows, stark clean lines. The architect has done a great job in marrying these two  tastes. The home  includes such eco friendly solutions as solar hot water, incorporating radiant slab heat, using the concrete slab as finished floor. It also incorporates photovoltaic roof panels to provide electricity, CREE LED lighting fixtures, PEX water supply lines instead of copper. The insulation is discarded blue jeans. for most of the roof we used white metal roofing providing the highest solar reflectance value of any roofing possibly saving  up to 40% on annual energy bill. Other Greenspecifications included: 98% energy efficient tankless water heater, finger joint lumber for trim, Non no added urea formaldehyde in our custom cabinets,  Zero VOC paint by Mythic used interior and exterior, plantation grown and responsibly  harvested Mangaris decking at front patio, a rain water collection system was even thought of. We are reclaiming the original 1920 Douglas Fir framing members for resawing into new decorative siding, and ceiling boards throughout. And the best part is, the client is doing this not to get a Platinum LEEDS Certification. He's doing it just because it's right. Doing his part to reduce his carbon footprint.
Stop by and take a look. It is located at 924 Amoroso Place.
