Studio City, CA
Garage Envy, Inc., a Los Angeles firm and proud ASID LA member, is participating in the design and creation of the first certified Green Garage in the U.S.. Garage Envy, based in Sun Valley, CA, is Southern California's leader in storage and organization designed solely for the garage. Formed in 2002, Garage Envy has grown by delivering the highest quality products with intelligent and beautiful designs. A complete design/build firm, Garage Envy has been able to trailblaze the field of garage design and breakdown the stereotypes of how people perceive garages to look and function.
One of Garage Envy's primary efforts has been to introduce eco-friendly building technologies to their industry and everyday business practices. From energy efficient products, to materials that are safe for both the family and environment. Recently recognized as the leader of the Green Garage mission, Garage Envy was selected to participate in the first LEED Platinum home in the San Fernando Valley, and one of the very few in the country. LEED certification stands for The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™. LEED, created by the United States Green Building Council, encourages and accelerates global adoption of sustainable green building and development practices through the creation and implementation of universally understood and accepted tools and performance criteria. The Platinum rating is the highest rating of LEED.
The Garage Envy Green Garage will be equipped with energy efficient lighting, non-toxic and environmentally friendly paints, bench tops made of sustainable products, European style cabinets made of wheat board, custom doors made of bamboo, and flooring with zero VOC (volatile organic compounds) products.
ASID members and the public will be able to view the Garage Envy Green Garage as well as the many other design features of this LEED Platinum certified home in Studio City, in October. Information and exact open house dates will be made available to ASID. For more information please visit www.GarageEnvy.com or call 888.249.1766.
