New Green Building Design - Leap Adaptive Hummingbird h3 - Best Green Home 2012
Leap Adaptive is designing and building modern, eco-friendly homes for developers and end-users. Each of its sophisticated and stylish green home plans showcases modern green technology and designs.
From the “Less is more” school of thought, All of Leap Adaptive’s designs are principled on minimizing grid reliance, reducing building mass and maximizing space. The sustainable home designs from Leap Adaptive are the Acacia, Nano, DragonFly and the Hummingbird designs. The homes are customizable and endowed with eco-minded technologies, leveraged with modern, sophisticated style.
The Hummingbird series of designs are the smallest iteration of Leap Adaptive. From a scant 480 square foot “h1”, a single bedroom bachelor/guest house to the NEW and larger 1350 square foot “h3”, the Hummingbird models feature a spacious and open-airy design, passive day-lighting and solar capturing roof designs.
The NEW Hummingbird h3 features 3 bedrooms, 3 full baths, a large kitchen-greatroom area, two chill decks and a two-car garage. One of the bedrooms is semi-detached affording the occupant the flexibility to utilize it as an office, domestic quarters, an at home dorm or an artist retreat. The stylish and contemporary design is as much at home in a rural setting as it is in a sun-kissed tropical hideaway. Customizable to meet your needs and lifestyle, the h3 is the ultimately adaptive.
Build it. Live it. Luv it.
