Designing Green is the story of Casa Nueva - one of Santa Barbara County's greenest buildings and the recipient of the Award of High Honor in the Savings by Design Energy Efficiency Integration Award Program. It is a story about breaking traditional design methods and embracing a collaborative approach to create an affordable and sustainable building, one that uses considerably less energy than buildings of comparable size.
