wis tavern building ::. Chicago LEED-H GOLD

Living just down the street from such epic Green Art and riding by this beauty on my two wheels everyday -- I just had to introduce this greatness from Chicago. The Wis Tavern Building, Frank and Lisa Mauceri’s renovated home (and office of their company, Smog Veil Records) is the first LEED-H Gold Certified home in Illinois. It has everything: geothermal heating and cooling, solar panels and wind turbines up on the amazing looking green roof, efficient appliances, and using recycled materials throughout the building, have managed to create an absolutely beautiful home. Adaptive reuse at its best.
