Reusing old structure to make a new one is such a great idea. Just like the Cromley Lofts in Alexandria that receives a Gold level certification and eventually made them as the first LEED certified condominiums in Virginia. The Cromley Lofts has eight wonderful units that are located in the old town area of Alexandria in an old warehouse building circa 1910. Though the structure is converted into modern condominiums, it remains many elements in the past like the brick walls with spray paints. The green element of the lofts are its green roof, salvaged Georgian pin floors, bamboo cabinetry, cork flooring, low-voc carpets, paints, glues and sealants, Energy Star appliances, and the dual flush toilets.
In my childhood, my classmates and I are fond of using the banana leaves to pack our lunch. It creates an appetizing smell, enhanced food flavor and promotes less cleaning works after meal, as we only throw the used leaves in the garbage bin. As time flies, plastic lunch boxes are hitting the market leaving the banana leaves an obsolete one. Today, with the aim to help save the environment, I am surprised and happy at the same time seeing the banana leaves as one of the catalysts in saving the earth. The Packaging the Future series includes the banana leaves as one of the better packaging solutions.
The Eggo house is refreshing, cool, and a beautiful creation of A69. It is a self-contained home situated within a garden. If you are used to see a house with a backyard garden, the Eggo house made a difference because the garden becomes the centerpiece. Situated at the center of the structure, the garden provides a natural feeling and fresher air. Thus, residents don’t need to open their air conditioners to cool themselves up because the garden did the job already. The house has an independent study area, a private zone, terrace and social rooms that surround the garden with a kitchen connected to all of these social spaces.
