Because the built environment accounts for nearly half of all carbon emissions in the United States, how we develop our homes has an enormous influence on our communities at large. Solo seeks to build and renovate properties in ways that reduce their environmental footprint. For new developments like Kensington Yards, Solo incorporated a suite of features intended to reduce waste and minimize carbon including robust insulation and reclaimed materials.
Solo aimed to provide great light and large, usable spaces that prioritize the daily living experience of the residents while also aiming for energy efficiency. We offered residents something more than what else is out on the market, creating a building that is additive to the community at large. While respecting the current built environment, we created something new, modern, and interesting to view from the neighborhood.
