Healthy Home 2010
Lorts was pleased to be specified for the beautiful and green-focused Healthy Home designer showhouse, outside Chicago.
“Healthy Home 2010 is the first designer showhouse in the nation to bridge the gap between traditional green building and healthy interiors by implementing a new interior design protocol developed by a distinguished advisory board consisting of industry leaders in sustainable design.
Located in Chicago’s northwest suburb of Palatine, the home features a wealth of sustainable and healthy design – from landscaping to building to healthful interiors – and is seeking U.S. Green Building Council‘s LEED for Homes certification. Each material and product was pre-approved by Healthy Home 2010’s Interiors Advisory Board.
Healthy Home 2010 is spearheaded by Victoria Di Iorio and Jill Salisbury, who led representatives from all facets of the sustainable design industry to focus on the healthfulness of each material and product that was recommended for use in the home.
‘We are going beyond the notion of what is sustainable to create a home that has human health at the heart of our objectives,’ noted Victoria Di Iorio. ‘The project seeks to raise awareness on cleaner, safer, healthier living.'”
