In celebration of Earth Day this Saturday, Vali Homes invites the public to tour a unique home built specifically to optimize the residents’ health in the Sonoran Desert. This new Phoenix home blends new technologies with traditional ancient building techniques and scientific principles such as Biomimicry to bring the best of the outdoors inside while sealing out allergens, noise, and toxins. Scientific experts will be available to explain the green living space and what goes into building a green living environment.
First-of-its-kind sustainable homes completed in Phoenix.
- Designed to mimic the Saguaro cactus The home was built to be compatible with Phoenix’s unique Sonoran Desert climate including the use of wide-ranging and scientifically tested principles such as Biophilia, Biomimicry, and Passive House.
- Perfect Air Quality With a built-in CO2 Meter, this sophisticated air filtration system adjusts when it senses unhealthy contaminants like cooking food and cleans the air immediately.
- Framed Wool and Wood Wool from New Zealand sheep fills these walls rather than toxic spray foam insulation and OSB board. Gutex wood-fiber boards from Germany protect the home from leaks and moisture that can lead to mold and health problems.
- Designed to last 100+ years- This home is built with data from over 10,000 homes and the 5 Factors of Good Building.
