Oftentimes when environmentally friendly homes are designed the client wants to keep a low carbon footprint or be sensitive to the surrounding landscape. But there’s another very important reason to go green in residential design, which is personal health. And that’s exactly why Slade Architecture was asked to take an eco-friendly approach when creating this contemporary Gramercy Duplex.
The renovation combined two existing one-bedroom duplex units into a single two-bedroom duplex. All materials were specified as low VOC, including recycled denim insulation, recycled paper countertops, Low-e windows, and Eco Spec paint.
