A beautiful rustic, yet refined environmentally-friendly home design by 2e Architects. This home produces as much energy as it uses - it's a self-sustaining home.

Kitchen and dining room with high end appliances and lots of natural light.



Welcome to our gallery featuring the beautiful Net Zero home designed by 2e Architects.

Designed for clients Judy and Craig, this brand new home has been designed top-to-bottom with their preferences and environmentally-friendly mentality in mind.

This home is a Net Zero home, meaning that the energy consumed by the home is equal to the amount of renewable energy it produces.

These homes can have a reputation for being uncomfortable and undesirable, but this home is built to live in–and built to live in very comfortably. The beautiful, spacious kitchen seen above has all the most desirable features of a luxury kitchen, and yet is completely environmentally-friendly.

The interior design of this home is a balance as well–between rustic elements and more refined, modern elements. The home sits on 10 acres, and has room for the owner’s greenhouses and ponies.

The home is large enough to host guests, but when there are none, the rooms are kept out of sight and the home feels just as full as before, in contrast to a home where all the bedrooms are in the same area. The home also has an orchid room, home office, and a sleeping porch.

We hope you enjoy this spacious, green home.

The front exterior of the home shows the unique architecture, with multiple levels. Parts of the home are in stone and masonry, while others are a more contemporary siding. The roof of the home is nearly completely covered in solar panelling.

The kitchen is the jewel of this home, with a dining room in the same open space. The room is light and bright, with a series of large windows on the right. The kitchen island has textured cabinet doors facing the dining room.
