Boston Magazine Design Home 2014

The 2014 Boston Magazine Design Home will be open for public tours starting on September 10th. For the last ten years, the magazine has been teaming with a local builder, architect, designer and a charity to build a house that focuses on a specific kind of living style. This year’s house, located in Salisbury, MA, is a single family house that feature’s “net-zero” energy living.

From the website:

In 2014, Boston magazine marked its tenth Design Home. Each Design Home is built in a new location from north of Boston to the south shore to metro west, each project features a unique perspective on living. From sprawling suburban estates, to sleek urban living, transitional to contemporary each project has brought something new to the home market and this year’s project will be no different. In 2014, the project embarked on a new experience featuring a single family net-zero energy home.

The partners of the project, Ridgeview Construction, Tom and Natalie Treat, Boston Children’s Hospital and Boston magazine, came to appreciate all that a project like this can do for a community. Visitors had the chance to grab ideas, pull inspiration, and touch and feel the many products that are available in home design. This exceptional viewing experience provided the community with an inside look at smart design, cutting-edge technology and products for your home all while supporting Boston Children’s Hospital.
