The Environmental Showcase Home (ESH) in Phoenix, Arizona was designed in response to the extreme climate of the Sonora desert. This project was commissioned by the Arizona Public Service, to introduce a full range of environmentally responsible design ideas, systems, and products to mass-market, production housing builders. Areas of special attention included climate-specific design, energy and water conservation, sensitive material selection, public health concerns, and waste reduction. The design team used both passive strategies and active systems to achieve the main goal of reducing residential energy use and overall environmental impact in mass-market, production building. Other initiatives toward this goal throughout the project were water conservation, waste reduction, and the evaluation of materials through a life-cycle assessment.
