The first home in Northern California to strive for the LEED Platinum rating (the highest level possible in LEED for Homes) was recently completed in Oakland Hills, and the result is as much a study of breath-taking design as it is sustainability.

The house began as chance for the developer and homeowner to create a modern house with some green elements, but after deciding to try for LEED certification, it turned into almost a communal quest to attain the Platinum rating.

The article is pretty inspiring, and also contains some great pictures of the completed property.
