Submitted by: Aaron Ackerman, Architect Bowers+Kubota
This Living Building Challenge demonstration case study project seeks to build the 1st residence in the State of Hawaii to be Certified-Living by the International Living Future Institute. 75% of the project was built with bldg. materials extracted from Hawaii's regional construction waste streams. The bldg. operates beyond net-zero on an annual basis. 100% of the bldg.’s energy and water needs are supplied by on-site renewable resources. 100% of storm water and wastewater are recycled on-site.
