Originally a five unit apartment complex, this home was redsigned by Tryggvi Thorsteinsson and Erla Dögg Ingjaldsdóttir into a contemporary single family residence. With green design always at the forefront of Minarc's
designs, this home does not disappoint. This home utilizes solar thermal heating for domestic hot water as well as a radiant floor heating system installed by Enviro Plumbing. It incorporates many recycled materials such as rubber, cork, and wood to construct the bathroom sinks, kitchen drawers, and counter. As well as using recycled, any materials from the building that were not used in this project was donated and salvaged.
