329 6th Avenue Kirkland, WA 98033
5-Star Built Green Home in Downtown Kirkland
With a specialization in high performance residential building, we are the first builder to construct net zero ready homes in the growing Eastside. With a sophisticated blend of modern design, energy efficiency, and groundbreaking technology, these 3,500 square foot homes set the standard for sustainable building development in the up-and-coming Puget Sound tech hub.
When is comes to sustainable residential design, we are the Seattle-area experts. As a 2015 winner of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Housing Innovation Awards and Green Home Builder’s Custom Home of the Year, we carry our environmental expertise through all aspects of design and construction.
At 329 6th Avenue, net zero energy efficiency is targeted with a solar-ready rooftop configuration, high impact insulation, triple-glazed widows, LED lighting, and a top-of-the-line heat-recovery ventilation system. The high-level of detail is woven throughout the modern architectural design, with an open, light-filled floor plan and recycled and reclaimed materials utilized throughout the space. The re-use of building materials creates a completely unique appearance, with 100 year-old hardwoods, weathered Douglas Fir, and rusted Corten steel featured prominently in the home. The homes are complete with Grohe WaterSense fixtures, Niagra .8 gallon flush toilets, LED lighting, and a full set of EnergyStar appliances.
Founded in our mission to create healthy, sustainable, urban communities, these two new homes are set in a highly pedestrian friendly location. It is a short three-block walk to Lake Washington, shopping, dining, and parks. Homeowners have easy access to public transit options, but if car use is required, the house is set-up with a conduit for electrical vehicle charging. At Dwell Development, an eco-conscious lifestyle is just as important to sustainable design as the building materials and systems that go into all of our homes.
