Officials break ground for the EcoHouse.

City officials, environmentalists and contractors don’t usually gather with a homeowner a ceremonial groundbreakings. They did so in on June 11 in an unsual event for an unsual home, dubbed the “Pasadena EcoHouse.”

On a small plot of hillside on the extreme western edge of the city, the EcoHouse will soon be built and become the first home in the nation to have earned Platinum certification for water and energy efficiency by the U.S. Green Building Council.

“This showcase venture will demonstrate the feasibility of eco-friendly new home construction, one of today’s most interesting economic, philosophic, social and political topics,” says its architect, Robert Mechielsen.

Mecheilsen calls the home architecturally significant, environmentally responsible, and budget-conscious.
