The Briard House in Culver City, CA was designed by architect Whitney Sander, and it's the greenest "hybrid house" (meaning part of it uses prefab elements) ever built. The total project cost was $500,000 for the 3,800-square-foot duplex, and the strategies and materials used include greywater systems, passive heating and cooling strategies, a cistern to capture rainwater for watering the landscape, recycled blue jean insulation, sunflower seed wall board, bamboo flooring, marmoleum, and structural steel frames from recycled steel...
