Many people think you have to go to California to find state-of-the-art environmental design in home building, but they have not met Houston's LaVerne Williams. LaVerne is an architect & building ecologist, bioneer, founder & ceo of Environment Associates, Architects & Consultants. In short, he specializes in helping Texans live with a lighter impact on our world. A good example of this is the Integral Urban Homestead in the Heights designed for a Houston couple interested in sustainable living. From a rain catch system that will supply all the owner's needs, to PV solar cells providing electricity, it's a prize example of what can be done with true "green" design. With all it's design features the home is registered Platinum LEED. If you have designs on sustainable living, but you don't want to go to California, come to our next Sierra Club meeting Thursday, February 12, and hear from one of Houston's leading lights in living lightly.
