Project Main Details
That’s the idea behind the Living Building Challenge.
It embraces a positive relationship between people and buildings by recognizing beautiful structures that are built from healthy materials, are only as large as they need to be, use their surroundings to provide comfort, produce more energy than they consume, and collect more water than they consume.
And Gulf State Park has accepted the challenge for our next construction project, meeting strict criteria that affect everything from water usage to electricity.
The building will capture more water from precipitation than it consumes. And all that water is treated for human use and stored on site.
The building, like the park itself, is a place that connects people to nature, fitting right in among its many miles of trails and paths while showcasing the park’s diverse ecosystems and stunning landscapes.
Its beauty comes from its simplicity and the ability to see how the building functions. And it blends with the surrounding landscape, blurring the line between indoors and out.
Health & Happiness
It is proven that exposure to daylight and fresh air increases health and happiness. With plenty of access to the outdoors, it will leave a smile on every visitor’s face.
And pollution-free, renewable resources provide energy. Consuming less energy than it collects, it stores all that extra energy for use at night and during emergencies.
Open to all, it will increase the public’s enjoyment and use of the park’s natural resources.
And finally, construction materials will be safe for the park and its visitors. Most materials are locally sourced and contain no harmful chemicals.
As of April 2016, there are only 8 fully certified Living Buildings in the world. It’s a challenge, but the way we see it, a place this special deserves an equally special building.
