Little Feet

This meant going beyond the usual basic incorporation of green products and building sustainability into the overall framework.

The Aero House demonstrates a distinction between intrinsic and supplementary green characteristics. The intrinsic elements are part of every Aero House, and are found in its combination of transportability, modularity, materials drawn from renewable resource supplies, and a desire to disturb the site as little as possible. Supplementary elements, such as the green roof and graywater recycling, are left to the discretion of individual homeowners, but every owner of an Aero, regardless of his or her specific program,
will be investing in the green aspects that are fundamental to its design.
