Clearview Residence by Altius Architecture

  • Posted by Neil Simonton on March 12, 2012 in Architecture
  • Designed for a local artist, this stunning rural home from Toronto-based studio Altius Architecture near Collingwood, Ontario communicates beautifully with the natural surroundings, with dark-framed glass walls and vertical windows that flood the interiors with natural light. Completed last year, the Clearview Residence features a broad selection of sustainable technologies, including renewable materials, passive solar heating, and a bunch of water conserving appliances and fixtures. 

    "A whole host of other green strategies have been incorporated," say the architects,"including a low-impact horizontal lake loop geothermal heating system, a green house with a grey water recycling system, deliberate solar orientation, low-flow plumbing fixtures, and local materials."
