Abstract: State-of-the-art sustainable design principles were integrated into the process from the initial demolition of an existing building. On-site demolition and recycling of the old foundations lead to energy efficient design complete with "solar energy for water and space heating; durable, resource efficient and recycled-content building materials including straw bale, stabilized earth, sustainably harvested wood, recycled plastic toilet partitions, recycled glass tiles and countertops, recycled newspaper insulation, and wheat straw wall paneling; water conservation measures and on-site alternative wastewater treatment."
