LivingHomes has been splashed across almost every design, architecture and sustainability publication for almost a year, and for good reason: The company's first modular home prototype was the first residence to receive Platinum LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. LivingHomes founder and CEO Steve Glenn is the company's best spokesperson, and not just because he started the company--Glenn moved into the prototype soon after it opened and has lived there ever since.
On a beautiful Southern California day, Alissa Walker joins Glenn in the family room of his Santa Monica home to discuss the history of LivingHomes, Glenn's inspiration for the company, the praise that the prototype has received and the inevitable blasts from critics, what it's like living in a green home and how exactly his collection of childhood toys has everything to do with green building.
Take a tour of Steve Glenn's house at livinghomes.net, where you can see the house's features room-by-room.
