Sea Glass is a unique, resource responsible community of homes gathered around an ecologically rich commons that promotes sustainable, social and culturally connected living. This development is a collective of twelve homes organized around a well designed commons. Design principles strive to spatialize normally hidden technologies (new and traditional) as part of a high quality sustainable lifestyle, that is deeply connected to the place by capturing unique features as project amenities. This includes the integration of rainwater harvesting and building form; community gardening as social event; solar harvesting to provide shaded spaces and to power shared electric automobiles; and stormwater stewardship as natural wetland gardens that purify water while providing habitat diversity.
