Integrated Building Design

Making better, more sustainable buildings takes more than energy efficient light bulbs. Learn about key areas of our building's design.



WindowChoosing a window means striking a balance between how much daylight they let in, and how much heat they let in or out. The designers at Cascade Meadow chose several different windows for the building- striking a balance between views of the outdoors and heat gain from sunlight. We also have some windows that can be tinted by pushing a button, depending on the conditions and the needs of the occupants.
