Jennifer and Jeff will lead the tour through their architecture office/studio and residence situated on a 50′ x 140′ urban lot re-zoned for urban use. This project is a study in learning how to design for living/working environments, energy efficiency as well as teach their two young children about energy and water consumption, recycling, gardening and community.
