Case Study House

Process—————18 December 2013

Studio Twenty Seven Architecture’s recently completed +2edison7, a USGBC LEED Platinum residence, has been selected as a Case Study House for Arlington County, Virginia’s Green Home Choice Program. Since it has been occupied, +2edison7 is operating at over 40% more efficiently compared to the 2007 baseline average. The Arlington County Community Energy & Sustainability Task Force has reported that, collectively, buildings use three-quarters of all of the County’s energy. Twenty four percent of all fuel use and 25% of greenhouse gas emissions in the county come from residential buildings. Arlington County aims to hold renovated residential buildings to a new standard. By 2015, residences that have undergone significant renovation will be expected to operate at least 30% more efficiently on average compared to 2007 performance.
