Interior Design and Contemporary Homes Magazine
If you love the idea of living in a quiet place, far away from the bustle of the city, this is the perfect house for you! With a decorative style appropriate to its location, this singular home brings us the same sensation in its interior as on its exterior.
When you picture your ideal home, do you imagine something calming, chalk full of soothing colour schemes and smooth, pleasant materials? If we could, we’d live in a house that looks like a spa all year round to feel as relaxed as we might leaving our latest massage or facial. That’s exactly what the designers of Jade Apartment were going for in their aesthetic and design!
Have you always loved uniquely shaped homes that are full of neat features, secret corners, and and fun little design details that you don’t often see elsewhere? Those are some of our favourite design features, particularly if they’re combined with a contemporary aesthetic as well. That’s why we liked just about every aspect of the Kinosaki Residence so much!
For some architects and home designers, the art of building a house is just that; an art. In fact, when a designer creates a beautiful apartment or house that they feel really encompasses the essence of a style or aesthetic, they often give the home a name that communicates that for the world to see. That’s the case with this breathtakingly unique home in Manhattan, New York City, USA! HomeDSGN – Interior Design and Contemporary Homes Magazine

I spent many days driving to the city of Baltimore and really learning about poverty and neglected populations that were only 15 minutes from where I grew up. That experience really helped shape our entry point for greeNEWit because we were acquiring houses that were projected to be worth $30 to $50,000. But when the market tumbled, it ended up being more like single-digit thousands of dollars. We had legal bills that were in excess of the equity in the building. It really was a life lesson in a bubble and it affected all parts of a community. Fast forwarding, I owned a bunch of real estate that was dilapidated in a city that would be hardest hit because it has some of the most at-risk members of our society. Out of that, myself and few business partners formulated the idea that there was money locked in buildings through energy waste. That’s where the birth child of greeNEWit came from. As we drove through the cities of Baltimore and Columbia, there was value locked in people’s attics and basements. Then we went out and got educated as building science experts and really allowed our vision to turn into a reality.
We didn’t quite understand how complex the industry would be even for a small industry, but also how important.
Resilient homes is where greeNEWit is heading but we’re still getting there the old-fashioned way of one house, one building at a time. We’re looking at the entire profile and now painting the picture of what that could look like, while getting a gauge from the customer on how far they are looking to go, from an efficient and sustainable home to a resilient one.
The Home Performance Extensible Markup Language (HPXML) Data Dictionary and Transfer Standard have been gaining traction in the residential energy efficiency industry over the last few years as software developers continue to adopt the data standard and new�resources�are released to the market to help programs integrate the standard into their operations.
