Green on Brownstoner: Reusing Rainwater in Boerum Hill

Installment #3 of Green on Brownstoner finds us at a four-story, 20-foot wide, 2,920 square foot, 1860s-era brownstone in Boerum Hill that will be part of the 2008 ASES National Solar Home Tour on October 4th. If you've got a green project for us, send a note.

Nomad Architecture was tasked with a massive renovation, as the interior had been damaged by uneven settlement and water damage. They retained the party walls and facade, and reinvented the inside. Their goal was to minimize water and energy consumption as well as the environmental impact of materials used. Rainwater will be caught and reused, low-flow toilets and Energy Star appliances installed, envelope sealed to make the building 66% more energy efficient.
