LEED Gold Certification for Crystal Springs House

We are thrilled to announce that 2atara’s Crystal Springs remodel has received the prestigious recognition of LEED Gold certification from the US Green Building Council.

LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) is a globally recognized symbol of excellence in green building. LEED certification ensures electricity cost savings, lower carbon emissions and healthier environments where people live, work, learn, play and worship.

The 2320 sf early 1900s home on Crystal Springs, Bainbridge Island was designed by Islander Adin Dunning of Studio Bracket, and the sustainably remodel was a privilege to work on.

Buildings are responsible for an enormous amount of global energy use, resource consumption and greenhouse gas emissions and have a significant impact on our personal health and well-being. Green buildings allow us to live and work more sustainably in ways you can experience – in your health, the air you breathe, the water you drink. They offer us a better quality of life, while also lowering global carbon emissions, reducing electricity and water bills, and creating new green jobs.

As a certified LEED AP, 2atara’s owner Craden Henderson was able to guide the projects construction to its LEED Gold certification.

“4050 Crystal Spring’s LEED Gold certification demonstrates tremendous green building leadership,” said Mahesh Ramanujam, president and CEO, USGBC. “LEED was created to make the world a better place and revolutionize our buildings and communities by providing everyone with access to healthy, green and high performing buildings. 4050 Crystal Springs is a prime example of how the innovative work of project teams can create local solutions that contribute to making a global difference.”

Given the extraordinary importance of climate protection and the central role buildings play in that effort, Crystal Springs is creating a path forward through their LEED certification.
